PLEASE tell me that the insanity has not crept North... we will be visiting Canada either summer of 2010 or 2011 FOR SURE, and I look forward to a great visit.
Not yet. The price at the pump is the price you pay. Extra charges for Debit and credit are whatever one has agreed to with the card issuer. Different banking systems due to gov't regulations.

But do expect to pay more for gas up here. They gouge you on midrange. The pumps are automatically adjusted for temperatures and volumes. Too bad they can't figure out a way to determine how much cheap or expensive gas is in the hose between the meter and the nozzle. Plus many stations contain up to 10% ethanol, but they never say exactly how much.

In some areas expect to prepay inside at night.

Believe it or not Ontario actually has an old law I just learnt about this summer. If there is an attendant, you are not allowed to pump your own gas. I guess the key difference is the attendant pumps have the little lever in the handle that keeps pumping without having to squeeze the handle. One needs special training to know how to use it. ;-)

One thing about pay at the pump in the states after you swipe your credit card the machine asks you for your zip code (Canada postal codes don't work I tried!) then you have to go inside and put say $100 on your card after you fill up they refund the differance to your card. This wasn't always the case but it happened a lot, I started carrying enough US bucks for a fill up instead of using my credit card. I never did try my interact card any where except in bank machines.
