    Default So the cheap oil Barrel means nothing much?

    It's a $1.06 a litre for gas with a $37 barrel of oil but when it was $100 a barrel gas was only 0.20 cents more at $1.26 a litre.
    We should be at 62 cents a litre by now.

    Gas price in Sault Mich is as low as $1.80 US per US gallon. With exchange ( $1 CDN = .73 US) and conversion for difference in the gallon (6 US = 5 CDN), we will pay $0.65 per litre in Sault Mich. This is a $0.40 per litre ($1.06 - .65) difference. Can anyone say GOUGING.

    Our system is not "free" yet we do enjoy it, thanks. Along with health care, we can also live in our own homes after extensively employing it. Ask me. Both my heart surgeries at the Peter Munk Medical Centre cost me nothing extra out of pocket. Two standard pacemakers and a pacemaker/defibrillator cost me nothing out of pocket as will my new pacemaker/defibrillator when installed. Stays in hospital for weeks at a time, no extra cost. Need I go on? Try this on your system and get back to me with a price comparison and we will talk. Jealousy is such an ugly master.

    If I did the math right gas across the river is 62 cents a liter after exchange . Usually we are only 30 cents a litre more not 44 cents.

    1.80 a US gallon divide by 3.78 to get to litres, then add 30% exchange rate.

    Obviously I struck a nerve.

    Buy, hey, if you want to think your healthcare is free, all while your government taxes you at rates that are just this side of criminal, then by all means go on. Your government LOVES lemmings like you.

    Just had a colleague have major surgery, and by-cracky, she didn't pay a cent out of pocket! Isn't that amazing??


    what is that...insurance??


    Wow, what a concept!

    Oh, you mean to say that somebody ELSE paid for her health care?? Last I looked, I PAID out of pocket for insurance, OR it was part of my wage package.

    And that no one in the USA loses their home to medical bills.

    Thanks for the info.

    Struck a nerve, no. I simply corrected your erroneous statement so you might look less the fool. Your second line is a waste for those able to read and comprehend my statement regarding the cost of healthcare. Now regarding your colleague not being out of pocket, she is simply given insurance? Fabulous. Most are not nearly so fortunate.

    Hardly, eh, probably just like here, when part-time employees don't get the benefits, their hourly wage is higher!!!

    63 cents (Canadian) per litre across the river right now vs our $1.06 per litre. Now that is worth the bridge fee.

    I wouldn't cross simply for gas but if I am over anyway, definitely. Especially if my tank is low. I am going over today and taking a jerry can with me.

    Better deal for a pickup truck person with a large 100 litre tank plus 5 gallons can in the back. At 30 cents on the dollar exchange rate I'm not sure if anything else is much of a deal any longer.

    Yet I'm able to save enough money purchasing gas in the US to make it worth my while.

    So somebody write up a simple spreadsheet to figure it out.

    By colleague is it safe to assume you refer to someone whose wage and therefore insurance is paid by the government who funds your socialized education system?

    About the only difference between our countries is the universal health care we have and they don't, but we are socialist and the USA is not. Talk about blind!!!
