    Well right now in NE Ohio I am paying $3.89 a gallon. That’s about $86 dollars for a fill up. Suck when I work 30 miles away, but need to get to work so. Oh well. Got to pay it. I still love my truck. :neutral:

    FOund this this morning in Thursdays paper...... I always read the paper late, as no news is good news and late news is better less wow factor......

    REGINA — The spring spike in gas prices has hit Regina early this year with a two-cent increase leading up to the long weekend.
    Regular fuel at most stations across the city on Wednesday cost 126.9 cents per litre. Around this time last year, the price was 119 cents a litre.
    “This is the highest we’ve ever seen them at this time of year, and we see gas prices get higher as we head into May,” said Dustin Coupal, co-founder of gasbuddy.com, which posts daily gas prices in cities across North America.
    Coupal attributes the rise to a shortage of refined petroleum across the continent due to a mixture of a normal seasonal shortage in the transition from winter to summer fuel blends and the number of closed U.S. refineries in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and, most recently, Spokane, Wash.
    Jason Parent, a Kent Group petroleum consultant, noted the relationship between supply and demand. In the run-up to the summer driving season, tightened supply causes wholesale gas prices to increase — a trend that began a few weeks ago, Parent said Wednesday.
    Unlike some experts, though, he is not forecasting Saskatchewan prices will jump to $1.40 a litre this summer because of excess capacity in parts of the U.S. and Europe.
    “There is enough refining capacity in Canada, but if there is a spike in demand, if we need to bring in refined product, there are places we can do that. That’s a limiting factor on the tightness of supply,” Parent explained.
    He expects prices to peak here at around $1.35 this summer.
    Glenn Laidlaw is in the right place at the right time. Originally from British Columbia, where unleaded fuel in Vancouver cost $1.44.3 Wednesday, Laidlaw is in town looking for work. He filled his truck’s tank on Wednesday for $100, quickly noting that it typically costs him about $70 south of the border.
    Regular gas hit $1.46 per litre in Montreal on Wednesday. In Halifax, the average price was $1.42.9 and $1.38.3 per litre in Toronto.
    Coupal expects drivers in Regina will start to feel relief next week when prices should drop by four or five cents. Prices typically begin to go on the rise again in May, and should stay around $1.36 per litre until September.
    Saskatchewan currently enjoys the third lowest average gas prices of all Canadian provinces after Alberta and Manitoba.
    For Barb Matlock, though, 126 cents per litre is high enough. Matlock was found gassing up her Topaz in Regina’s east end on Wednesday, watching the pump as she went. She doesn’t let her tank get below the halfway mark, saying she finds it more cost effective that way. Pointing to the pump, she said she’s glad she doesn’t drive a truck.
    “I don’t make a big wage, so I have to watch my pennies,” Matlock said. “If it’s going to go up 10 cents, that’s a big increase to people who live on a limited income.”
