pud is starting off with a positive reputation.
summer 08 gas prices vs todays..

please post where you live and the highest you remember it being, and then post what it is now for comparison. Im interested to see the then vs now percentage differences and compare

So say in Grande prairie it was 1.50/L at the highest, and now its 81 cents. That means now fuel here is about 54% of what it was at the highest.
In Edmonton lets say it was 1.45 a liter and its 73 cents now, that would mean its about 50.3% of what it was. This also means that Im paying roughly 4% more than you are, at the current price drops.
Ya'll follow?

pretty sure i remember gas localy over 1.65$/litre...

now it can be had for 67cents/litre some days..

part of teh reason i bought my V10 (again) was due to the price drop.. lets hope it stays low... the 1.65$ was killing me, and thats when i had my 5.4L F150...

I think we hit 149.9 here, now it's at 79.9. I was paying that while driving a F250 with a 5.4. I was pulling a 30' 5th wheel as well. When I bought my current truck I think I was paying a high of maybe 148.9 for diesel. Now here in town I am paying 89.9.

About $1.50 in the summer. Today was 87.7 in Cloverdale. Still a long way from the 36.9 back in 98.

pud is starting off with a positive reputation.
my OP was 54%
#2 40.6%
#3 54.3%
#4 53.3%
#5 46.8%
#6 58.5%
#7 51.9%
#8 55.4%

an average of 46.1% out of it all, a little skewed by post 2...but even if I make post 2 50.6% it still gives me an average of 47.2%. So it looks to me like if youre payin more than 50% of what you were in the summer youre getting hosed. Its 2am tho and something could be messy in my math.

Hypothetical:
For a gas station that goes through say 10,000L (1 fill up every 5 min for 11 hours, average 75L fill) for a day, each cent higher the gas is per liter would turn into 100$ for them.


Im suprised we dont see people buying gas in a different way....like a membership to a private fueling station where you get at cost and the membership fee goes to maintenance.
I remember when gas was around $1.20, I saw on the news (global Van) that the station was buying it at around 80 cents.

How much cheaper are cardlocks, if any?

I actually asked a local Esso cardlock if there were any savings through them. I was told sometimes it is actually more expensive. The one plus I saw with them was they have a large turnover in fuel so it is usually nice and fresh.
