"What does gas price have to do with health care? Not one cent goes to it."
============================
dezolen, ever heard of 'taxes'?
In Canada, we simply pay more tax on everything.
As far as gouging, Americans are also paying more for gas this time around. For some reason, gasoline is getting almost as expensive as when oil went to $140+. I would guess it is the refiners taking a ****** cut. Why, I am not sure.

Regardless, I would rather pay a bit of extra tax than have to pay the $15,000/year it would cost us for health insurance in the US, and still face the possibilty of getting cut off.

* Multiply that by 128 = cost in Canadian dollars per US gallon.
* Convert that to US dollars by multiplying by the going exchange rate.
That sure is over thinking it. price per litre x 3.89 and forget the exchange at the moment. We pay $1.60 per gallon in Saskatchewan more for 91 octane than we paid in Rapid City. With oil where it is we should be paying no more than a buck a litre but the oil companies always have an excuse regardless. One day it is the dollar next it is well we had to shut a refinery down to gee my wife needed a new bently and I sure am not paying for it.

You forgot, "There's a blizzard on the prairies and it could affect the oil pipelines".
