Do we pay too much for gasoline?
Our rural identity, culture, farms, real state values, jobs, population and sovereignty are at stake.
We have gravel roads. No public transit, too far for bikes to town, and motor cycles are deadly on gravel.
We do have school buses, But our kids suffer for activities, jobs.
Our food and supplies are priced higher from fuel ser charges once we get to town.
There is no room for these high gas prices in our budget.

They blame the poor guy at the gas bar while filling up their gas-guzler so they drive down the street alone to get a pack of smokes while the whole time hoping their stock broker buys shares in oil companies so they'll have money for retirement not realizing its one faceless person(s) making the decision to jack up prices to justify their $500,000.00 a year or more job so they can fill up their limo to drive around in.

He is telling you in advance prices are going up giving you time to fill up before and save money.
What is Harper doing about it?

What did he ever do but tell consumers that the price was going up or down?
That's not what a politician should do, radio stations already do that. Another worthless liberal.

"it does not seem that there is a single level of government or political party on our side"
Especially Harper. The higher gas goes, the more tax money( plus GST, a tax on a tax) he brings in to help him lower his record setting deficit. And when the deficit does come down with the help of high gas prices, Harper will claim it was because of sound fiscal management

The only thing The Harper Regime cares about is Americas Energy Independence, what about Canada's? or Total Lack their of?.
As all our Natural Resources are Literally being Sucks Dry by the South & China.
Sooner or Later, you Mark My Words, Every Canadian will Regret all the Pipelines being built, going Straight Past Canadians.

As for Peter's pathetic reference to European prices that's not a true comparison as they drive less than 1/2 the distance the average Canadian does and they also have transit systems that are usable too.
And forget about any government help as they are too busy raking in the tax revenues to pay down the deficit to help even if they wanted too.
