Yesterday as I drove in to work, I noticed gas station after gas station with cars lined up at the pumps. I checked the price, $1.22 a litre. What gives?! This morning it all becomes a little more clear. Prices are now $1.36 a litre in the blink of an eye.
Here are two facts that are bound to drive GTA motorists crazy - although they may no longer able to afford to drive.
The price of gas spiked to one of the highest rates ever seen in the GTA Friday - $1.36.6 for a litre of regular.
And the price of oil fell below US$100 a barrel on world markets for the first time in five months.

Why is it that prices can jump more than 10 cents overnight, but prices never come down more than 1 or 2 cents at a time. If that's not a conspiracy, I don't know what is. Hosed again at the pumps and there is nothing we can do except open our wallets and bend over. What a crock of shit!
