The yellow light on the dashboard lit up, signifying that the car was thirsty. Pulling into the gas station, I felt the pain as my pocketbook recoiled in fear. Gas was an incredible $2.71 a gallon for the good stuff (71.6¢ a litre for our Canadian readers!). I thought that was excessive.
This morning when I logged on to Canada.com
and saw the chart to the right. Gas prices are astronomical in the Nukland! (Note the cent symbol buffoonery. See how they are trying to fool Canucks into thinking that they are paying mere pennies rather than solid dollars? Sneaky sneaky!).
A quick bit of math wizardry reveals that the good folks in Montreal are paying $3.97 a gallon for regular. Wow.
I offer my condolences to Canadian piggy banks
