    Grr, I don't know how to represent my rage at the oil companies with smilies, so that will have to do.

    Here we're at $1.12 (CAN) per litre, so about $3.39 (US) per gallon, so we're on par with you folks down south. [Is it bad that it took me about 10 minutes to figure that out....and I'm an engineer?]

    I agree with you, cablejockey.

    I was driving to work yesterday and at the station I usually go to it was $2.59. When I left work it was $2.69. This morning it was $2.79 and when I left this afternoon it was $2.89. Going up 30 cents in 36 hours is ridiculous. I have a hard time believing that the effects of the hurricane could be felt so quickly. I also think it is rather suspicious that it happens just before a major driving holiday. Things that make you go hmmmmm.

    This morning when I filled up it was $2.99. When I got back home it was $3.45. I am glad I got it when I did.

    It'd be nice if a gas station here had gas. People are hording it because of the hurricane. I don't really know why, since most power around here has come back on so you don't need a generator anymore. If we don't get some new supply soon (and the Exxon refinery is in the freakin' town, so they don't have but a few miles to go) I'm gonna be rather ticked off. And I'm already pretty tightly wound as it is.

    $2.899 to $3.099 in the suburbs of Chicago, and $3.099 to $3.439 in the city. What's very strange is that it varies widely in the city - 2 gas stations on the same corner, 20 cents a gallon apart.

    Last night, (after going to CNE) the prices were like 134 cents a litre... In gallons, that is about $5.07 a gallon. CRAZY! I'm so glad I don't need to buy gas.

    I just heard this today.

    ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue said he will sign an executive order Friday that will exempt consumers from state motor fuel taxes through the end of September to ``relieve some of the financial burden'' in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
