Ahh, the weekend. Good weather, cold beer, barbecues, and the price of gas shooting up to $1.27.9/litre overnight here in Alberta. In US $ that works out to (given today's exchange rate) $5.26 US/USgal.
The last time I checked the price of a barrel of oil hasn't gone up in the last 48 hours, no shortage has been created by a loss (or perceived loss) of production, and nobody working at a gas station is suddenly and temporarily getting paid more.
This is just greed.
It could be worse I suppose. Over the May long weekend it jumped to $1.32.9/litre ($5.43 US/USgal).
So, what's the weekend price of gas in your town?
