How many times during a week do you hear people ask why the price of gasoline is still so high when the price of oil has dropped so much?
While we hear rhetoric about possible issues, the real focus should be on the Federal and Provincial governments allowing for gouging of the public. Chiefly both are parties to huge amount of cash in the incoming of taxes from the sale of each litre of gasoline which in the current clime means sometimes as much or more than what a litre of gas is costing to produce.
It just might be time for an arms length agency to regulate the price of fuels such as gasoline. An example of gouging is locally our price can fluctuate as much as ten cents a litre overnight. That’s insane. Yet over the border, less than ten minutes away in Akwesasne you don’t see the same price fluctuations. The kicker. For the most part it’s the same gas we pump here in Cornwall from the same distributors.
Is it time to regulate the price of gas? Should Canadians have to go to that level to be treated fairly by the oil companies, refineries, distributors, and government?
