Well fuel prices on the rise once more. $1.10/liter here. The news said it could go to $1.50 by summer. Maybe we will be back to back to backpacking . Oh well i got a big back yard to camp in.

For our USA friends this is $4.17 Canadian/US gallon. Keep in mind the difference from Canadian dollar and USA dollar is a penny or so at present time.

As Reace @ Escape Trailers told me a long time ago, the prices of HIS and similar products are very definitely tied into the crude oil prices, so its a Good Thing you bought NOW instead of procrastenating and getting The SHAFT L8TER!!!!

Chester,
That's about right. I've always found gas in Canada to be about a dollar higher than here in California. We are currently at $3.25 per gallon.

Good site for comparative pricing between major cities/areas in the USofA and Canada. Can do this week or last ten years or whatever, in Greenbacks or EhBucks:

http://www.alaskagasprices.com/retail_price_chart.aspx

If you want to feel good about local prices, enter BC, NS and Los Angeles on a six-month view.

My theory is that I didn't work my whole life and save for retirement just so I can sit home. If gas goes to $10.00 a gal. I will just plan shorter trips and stay longer at one spot. . AS long as the price of beer doesn't go to high, I'll be OK.

In a twisted way, I like to think of rising gas prices as a good thing, i.e. as the only way to really promote renewable/cleaner energy sources, smarter transportation, and, of course... eggs to replace all those big RVs!

Unhappy

The big news here was that the price at the pump increased an average of $0.08 in ONE DAY. The news commentators were saying that before today, a price increase of $0.10 in a WEEK was newsworthy.

In my recent trip to Krakow Poland gas price was equivalent to 7 US$ / USGal. No surprise why small cars and diesels are popular in EU.
