    ^LOL

    My car wouldn't turn over last night and I walked home. Made me want to start riding a bike around again for the summer, It is to bad that you can't live in this town without a vehicle.

    Am bumping - look for another 6-7 cent hike tonight/tomorrow morning. Most stations in Bowness/Montgomery already at 116.9, Centex by North Hill says they are going up over night - they're currently at 109.9

    It's reverse long weekend price bumping. Instead of doing it two weeks before a long weekend, they now bump the prices after the long weekend to compensate.

    I believe it happened all last summer too...

    Oh and the 7-11 on 16th ave and 44th street NW still had gas at 109.9 when I drove by around 9 tonight.

    You have a 50L tank? So with a $0.07 price hike you pay $3.50 more.

    This is why I'll never understand all the people who scream when it goes up a few cents, when in reality they pay like $4 more per full tank than before it went up.

    If it went up $3.50 over the course of a year, I could care less. But overnight, especially when oil prices are dropping, I have issue with that.

    We pay 25% tax on gas and some of that is tax on tax. Maybe the government shouldn't be so greedy. haha

    It's weird to see when RBOB (wholesale gasoline) has dropped like a stone over the past few weeks

    Except that crude oil doesn't go into your tank, so the fact oil prices dropped today has zero to do with the gasoline you buy today.

    Theoretically the price of fuel is correlated to the Canadian dollar so the price spike seems even more conspicuous given that our dollar today hit its lowest value in six months.

    but why then why do increased crude prices always translate into increased gas prices? and, during times of high crude prices you never see gas prices go down and they say "we're reducing gas prices cause it was made from crude that we bought for a cheaper price a few motnhs ago."

    it's a one-way street i guess.

    The price of gas has nothing whatsoever to do with whether there is a long weekend.

    Oil changes for my Subaru cost me about $45 for the oil, and the filter was $7. $52 total for fully synthetic at 12k intervals.
    First 100k cost $440 in oil.


    The oil for my Jetta was $65, plus $9 filter at 8k intervals to maintain warranty. $96 was the usual charge to have it done at the dealershpi. If you want to stretch it out, you can, but then you're on your own for warranty.
    First 100k cost $940
    I don't check this thread very often so I'm a little late to this argument but....

    Factory approved interval on the TDIs was 16,000km, or at least it was on my golf. After the warranty I found I could stretch it past 30,000km but my warranty did specify 16,000km between oil and filter changes. Also, I was able to get by for 5 years never paying more than $55 for oil and $6 for a filter, making the cost to 100k = $366 in oil and filter changes.

    Lastly, the timing belt bits are no more expensive for the TDI as compared to a 1.8T or 2.0L

    LOL, cause they are fucking crooks running a collusional monopoly.

    Oil goes up, gas prices goes up. Oil goes down, oops! refinery shortage, gas prices go up.

    LOL. Bush farts, gas prices go up...
