Remember about 20 years ago when we complained about gas prices? We thought they were going up temporarily while there was unrest in the Middle East and they would come back down if we could just hold on long enough. Hmmm…not such a good plan.
Now we even have “gas maps” to show us where the gas prices are lower and higher. Does this help anyone? For instance, if I know gas prices are lower in Winnipeg than where I live in Toronto, does this mean I can order gas from Winnipeg and have it delivered to me so I can get the cheaper prices? Or that I should get in my car and drive thousands of miles to get to the cheaper gas and then drive home where my tank will be empty and then fill up again on the higher gas prices? I think the only thing this map can tell me is that I should be more aggravated than I realized.Don’t worry, if you live in the U.S., you can be just as irritated. Here’s your own map.
There are a lot of people thinking about this. There’s even a Facebook group for people who hate gas prices.
