Cornwall Ontario – Gas prices are up 23 cents per gallon since last Sunday in Akwesasne or approximately 6 cents per litre. Oddly enough most of the gas sold on the US side of the reservation is in fact from McEwens in Ontario.
Here in Cornwall gas prices have shot up as much as 20 cents per litre ($1.22 per liter) or 75 cents per US gallon in the same period of time.
Again, this is gas that doesn’t go through Houston, or is refined there.
This is gouging at its near worst. In Ottawa prices are fixed at the $1.17 mark per liter as of press time.
Montreal, with higher Quebec taxes is hovering around $1.25, while in beautiful Toronto it’s only $1.12.
What’s even more insane is that oil was only trading in the high $40’s per barrel before Harvey. Brent Crude is only trading at $52 as of press time. Does it make any sense for this spike in prices?
What do you think dear CFN viewers? Is it time for anti-gouging and manipulation regulations for the oil industry?
