We are pretty heavily taxed on fuel in Canada. It's painful.

In today's paper there's an article noting that Esso gas stations are going on rationing and they may shut down some stations temporarily as they have a problem with their refinery and are running at 60% capacity. It is felt that will also drive the cost of fuel up. Dang.

At the rate of the increase fuel prices something gotta give sooner or later. Heard that OPEC will not increase production and does not feel sorry for the state of our economy.

A friend of ours lives in Fort McMurray, Alberta where the oil sands (used to be called the Tar Sands) are being developed. There is a huge amount of oil to be pulled from the sand which is great as with this developed it could cut NA's dependency on the OPEC countries significantly, the downside is the fact that this extraction also comes at great cost to the environment and is one of Canada's major contributors to global warming.

Anyway, here's a few facts he sent. Bear in mind that this is a relatively small Northern Alberta community with the sole purpose of extracting the black gold.


-Highest volume gas sales for any Esso station in Canada
-Highest volume gas sales for any Shell station in Canada
-Highest gross sales in Canada: Canadian Tire
Super store (grocery)
The Brick (furniture)
Staples
Tim Hortons (coffee/donuts/sandwiches)
Labor (shop) rates: Tire shop $140.00/hr
Ford dealer $180.00/hr
Ford dealer sold the most F150 trucks in Canada 2 years running. Service department runs 24/7 all year.
Oil change: QuickLub $90.00
Ford dealer oil change $190.00
1 bedroom apartment unfurnished $2100.00/month

North Houston Texas..

Holy Smokes! I saw Diesel for 3.82 today north of Houston! If diesel goes over 4 bucks a gallon it really makes you wonder the economics of a diesel pickup, that is if you are only getting a 3-4mpg improvement over gas.

Whew, looks like I better start saving for summer break.

Atlanta prices

In the NW suburbs, I am seeing $3.19 for 87 octane and $3.59 for diesel. We do have 1 local C-store that has no competition for 3 miles in any direction. $3.31 for 87 octane and $3.99 for diesel.

We haven't switched over to our summer "boutique blend" fuel, yet. And haven't noticed is fewer cars at the pumps. Demand seems better than ever.

The Exxon truck stop mentioned in my post above raised their prices again today. Diesel cash $3.85, diesel credit is 3.99 and unleaded is 3.19. Unless something stops this mess there is going to be a lot of diesel vehicles parked in the driveway.

So that's why I hear people calling it "Fort McMoney"!
