Just paid $4.37 gallon in Canada

I just filled up the car and I paid $1.15 a litre, which I believe works out to $4.37 a gallon. 1.15 x 3.8 = 4.37. The most I have ever paid. Ouch. Hopefully the government will spend all those tax dollars fixing our overloaded Health care system, rather than on whiskey and hookers

I pumped last night, noticing Diesel has jumped over the $4 barrier since a few days ago ...

Biodiesel shmiodiesel....the scammers around here that do sell the stuff charge enough arms and legs for it to leave you a bleeding torso on the ground after paying for a fillup with it.

Unless you mean brewing it yourself....which I also am going to try this summer, if I can find any sources of Veg oil....but thats going to be tough.

No matter what diesel costs, they charge about 20-30 cents more a gallon for B100, and about 5-10 cents more a gallon for B20 Very very annoying....why bother making/selling it if you're ALWAYS going to charge more? This doesn't seem to be the case elsewhere in the country from what I have seen others on here say about the price of Bio being lower. Why o why must they scam us around here? I'd run it all day long if it was even slightly cheaper than diesel.
