Gas prices revisited
    #4602745 - 08/31/05 09:52 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

The price of gas went up 20 cents per litre just last night here. I don't think I've ever seen such a hike before.

If they're raising the price this much all the way up here in Canada...I can only imagine what the situation is/will be like in the SE US....

Anyone else seeing hikes like this?

Yea it's pretty outrageous. I don't know if you ever watch breakfast television on CityTV but the producer of the show came out for a segment to talk about the prices and called the oil companies crooks outright. It was refreshing to hear the truth on television once in awhile. He said they are all price gouging because of Katrina and came right out and said it is theivery plain and simple. I commend him.

A friend of mine phoned my best friend last night, telling her that they were going to raise the price today for regular at his gas station from like 2.40ish to $2.99!!
Unfortunately I was too lazy to ride up the street last night and fill up.  I haven't stepped outside yet today, but I hope the place up the road isn't that high :rolleyes:

I went on a coffee run this morning and saw all gas stations at 1.10/litre except one that was at 1.01....they were lined up 2 blocks.  :frown:

I just filled up last night at .95 luckily. I wonder how much more they will raise it for labour day weekend?

The revolution is coming people. This is something that is going to affect everyone in a drastic way. From this day forward this situation is only going to get worse and people are going to get angrier. The sky is the limit for gas prices. The oil companies are going to get away with anything they fucking want. They have us all by our proverbial balls and they are starting to squeeze.

I told everyone I could last night to go fill up their tank if they needed gas, because I had a hunch prices were going up at least 20-25 cents per liter. Only one of my friends believed me, but he didn't seem to care enough to get any fuel.

Now today they're all kicking themselves for NOT filling up last night :smirk:

I don't think this is price-gouging, either. There are scattered reports of shortages coming in from parts of the US (and not just the parts hit by Katrina!).

This type of event was predicted years ago by guys like Colin Campbell, and should be good evidence that we have peaked or are currently peaking in world oil production.

Hurricanes in the past, while strong, have not caused widespread shortages beyond the area directly affected by the hurricane. That was because we had spare capacity both to produce oil and refine it into gasoline. All this has changed over the past couple years. Demand now matches Supply. This has made supply very tight - tight enough so that any disruption of the chain (from well to gas pump) will cause wild price fluctuations at best, and shortages at worst.

Matt Simmons has called this the "trigger event" which will cause oil prices to really start their post-peak climb. Only time will tell, at this point.

I think we should urge our government to shut it's doors to the world oil enocomy. No more exporting. Canada is an oil producing nation and we should keep it all domestic. It's coming down to every nation for itself anyway.

Also who knows if there really are shortages. It's been said all over that it's because of the hurricane which may or not be true but at this point they can use any and every excuse to jack up the prices even more. And I somehow doubt that the prices will go back down(ahem) to the dollar mark after this hurricane is over and done with. Everytime they raise it up it will stay that way until they raise it even more.

I completely agree - Canada should shut it's borders to oil exports.

Unfortunately we signed that stupid NAFTA agreement....which says we can't. We'll have to break a few treaties to close the border...

I also seriously expect the US to invade Canada when/if we ever stopped sending our energy south...

Canada is the largest exporter of oil to the USA. We send the US 99% of the oil we export. In 2004 we shipped the US an average of 1.64 million barrels per day.

The loss of this import capacity could be devastating to the US. If we ever actually did it...I'm sure the US would have a few choice words (and munitions) for Canada. I doubt it will ever happen, though, because our government is run by pussies who don't know how to say "no" :smirk:

For sure the US would invade. Our governernment really is run by a bunch of pussies. They would probably let their own citizens go dry while exporting our remaining oil to the US. Too bad Canada is too weak to kick the shit out of the US like we did in 1812. :evil:

a friend of mine in Florida (SouthEast Us)
told me gas prices we're going to raise .90 cents last night there.
I'm not sure if this is valid,
but i've seen no sign of gas price inflation here in Indiana.
Gas seems steady at $2.65 a gallon,
but is certainly subject to change.

It cost 33 dollars to fill my girlfriend's car yesterday compared with 18 a year ago. Yikes.

Gas prices are rising b/c of shortages. The main ports that have the infrastructure to import oil in the US are in the southern ports. Unfortunately, all of this infrastructure is under water.

Thank god for free public transportation for students where I live. No paying for gas for me!

yes gas prices do suck.
the only thing to do now
is for each of us to activate our counter-rotating fields of light
and leave behind this primitive form of transportation  :smirk:
