Gas Prices

Gas prices are $0.50/gallon in some US states. That's $0.17/Litre in after conversion.
I search a few major markets but Houston came in at the lowest right now on gas buddy (no pic, not real).

Then there’s conversion to litres.

Then the cost of the dollars.

So if you rock a 40/L tank, that’ll be 10.57/G of fuel at $1.19/USD - $12.58/USD total.

At $0.70 on the dollar, $17.99/CDN for 40L after conversions. Right?

I lived to see the day! Gas in the 0.50s, wow, albeit for the wrong reasons.

A month ago, it went down to 80, and I thought wil we see 70s. Then we saw 70, and I thought 60 is probably coming. And when I saw 60, I thought we may see 50, but probably not. Well, I saw that today too.

But this is it folks. Don’t bet on 40s, and really what difference does it make from here on? With an average tank of 50 litre, assuming one is even driving, and at 0.60 cents a litre, that is $30 to fill a tank!

Taxes on gas is about $0.37 ?
Seeing $0.40s would be historic

This is the perfect time for old gas station renovation
It sets back EV transformation a fair bit though. I'd rather see $2/L gasoline going forward. Better for Alberta's bottom line (and Canadian $) and better to nudge people towards buying one electric car. Particularly suburban familes who own two vehicles, one of them should be electric going forward. But time has shown again and again that when gas prices drop, people ramp up collectively in buying gas guzzling SUVs.

Vroom! Vroom!
