So, Oil prices have hit a new high, $100.
As is the promised low of $1.30 a litre for petrol promised this year.
Right now, a trip to Saskatoon and back is $45.
That makes me take notice.
On the news the other night I saw an interview with a young lady who obviously (because there was NO snow there) lives down on the mainland, near Vancouver. She was thinking that the price increase would effect her, because she fills her mid sized car twice a week.
I normally don't even use a whole tank in a month.
I mean, it's a small city. My commute is five minutes. That's it.
And I again kinda felt good that I live where I live, and I don't need to burn $150 in gas a week, just to get to work and back.
But $100 a barrel for oil. That's going to mean increased air fares, produce costs, mail delivery costs, public transportation fees, home heating costs, and so on.
Which may make us start to think smarter, at least on this continent.
