Is it wrong...
That I'm excited gas is below $4.00 a gallon?
It's all part of the governments master plan, raise it to $3.99 and then lower it a few dimes, we'll look like hero's. BS, it should be $1.50 a gallon!

As a country Canada exports gas....
Today, everyone was happy that gas was down to $1.18 per liter. ($4.46 per US gallon)
There is something very wrong. The government is making over 26% per liter in taxes and 13% on the total....Yep tax on tax...got to love it.....

this my "Conspiracy theory"
Every 3 to 4 years (it may come down to 2-3years) the gas companies will "spike" gas prices.
Lets go back a few years and see what has happened
In 2003 gas was what? $1.85/gal, then it spiked to $2.50 or so and then the public was delighted that it retreated to $2.00
a couple years later the price of gas went to $3.00-$3.50/gal and we the public were delighted when it retreated to $2.50-$2.75
now gas spiked to $4-$4.50 and how happy are that we are at $3.50 ($3.85 here)
this pattern will continue for the next 10 years till we are paying $7.00/gal
This is my theory, but if you look at the pattern, it's valid.No law ever prevented a crime.

Spare a thought for us poor folk in Scotland! It costs £6.08 for a gallon of diesel here, or £5.94 for petrol. Thats about $9.73 and 9.50 respectively!!! Horrific. Good job my car does 70mpg and my van about 50ish (when I behave!)
