    Exclamation Gas jumped 10 cents per litre over night.

    It was 1.23 yesterday now its 1.33. That makes it 0.40 a litre cheaper across the river now,thats a pretty big price spread.

    It actually went up the other day.

    But anyway, it's ridiculous in any case. Oil prices went down the day gas went up. Why is this?

    I remember when the price differerance from Sault On. and Sault MI. would never go over 0.25 - 0.30 per litre and stay in step, now its like we have our own little world over here.

    I don't even know what the gas prices are here from day to day, nor do I care. They can raise it up all they want, my butt is going across the river!

    Good old diesel... better bang for the buck. Wonder when more people catch on, Europe is already on the bandwagon. Those 1 trick ponies called hybrids will fade out one day... its funny because I can get as nearly as good mileage in a diesel car vs most gas hybrids. Wait till they bring out diesel hybrids and then you can say good bye to gas for ever...

    I see the price of oil went up today - how long do you think it will take before we see a price hike at the pumps?

    Gas is $1.299 in Marathon today. Odd - its usually about a dime more way up here.

    And yet we don't see diesels lasting any longer than gas cars.

    Total cost per mile vs gas cars?? Be interested to find out.

    Hardly a fair comparison when it is the bodies that give out not the diesels. I can show you a couple of outstanding Cumins/Dodge and a Ford 7.3 that is no slouch too. 4 or 5 hundred thousand with a maintained Cumins is easy. Try that with a 2. whatever V-6 gas.

    370,000 plus on a Buick V6 sitting outside right now.

    And there's no comparison between a Cummins and a small car diesel. Roll in new bearings to a Cummins every hundred thousand (BTDT) and it will run millions.

    One more thing. If any major part blows on that diesel engine, your wallet will have kittens.
