    Default Toronto gas prices < Calgary gas prices ???

    Why the heck are the gas prices down east cheaper or the same as Calgary gas prices. Shouldn't it be cheaper in the place that it comes from?

    http://www.calgarygasprices.com/
    avg for best prices: 85.7$/L

    http://www.torontogasprices.com/
    avg for best prices: 79.2$/L

    6.5$/L is huge when you consider that it has to be transported through the pipelines across Canada...

    I think the provincial gov't there lowered their gasoline tax as a political move for re-election.
