Shocking per litre price, but you have the conversion factor wrong: its 4.546 litres to the imperial gallon, so the Canadian price equivalent is $7.36 a gallon CDN or $5.51 in USD.

Here in Saskatchewan, regular is $1.28.9 .....the equivalent of $5.86 CDN per gallon, or $4.39 in USD.

Correct, but the rest of the numbers in this thread are in US gallons, so use $/liter X 3.78 X .75 ( $ exchange rate) to compare effectively in US Gal. and US$.

$1.71 CAD per liter here today, Faaaaaaaaak!

Been experiencing a rise in prices here lately. Up 30+ cents in just a few weeks so now @ 2.38 for the cheap stuff. But again the wildcard Costco is still @ 2.05 per gallon. Runs great in the Toyota Very Happy

Starting tomorrow, we Californians will pay another nickel or so per gallon due to a misunderstood ballot measure last year. We now have the highest gas prices in the nation, Hawaii included. Ain't we smart?

Our new Provincial government axed the carbon tax sparking a price war in the cities. In Calgary I heard it dropped below $1.00/ltr for a 87 octane for a few days.
Where I live it's $1.12/ltr for 87 and today I paid $1.29 for 91.

Hovering just under the three bucks a gallon around here. Ten days ago you could fill up here for $3.09, or drive 40 miles south and save fifty cents a gallon.

Fuckers.

$2.73 today at the beginning/end of I-95 in Maine. Carbon tax was nixed in the last legislative session, but they did pass over 1,000 bills, half of which increase the price of something for the consumer. More tax on gas is just a matter of time...

Thats what im saying. Cheaper to drive the Volkswagen beetle. Parts are plentiful. I think the fuel mileage is estimated 8.5-9.5 litres per 100km.
