Original Message Yep, you read that right...2 gas stations in Stratford, Ontario (between London and Kitchener, 150 miles from Detroit) are charging $2.255 per liter this morning.

At today´s exchange rate of $1.00 CND exchange rate equal to 85 cents U.S. that is exactly $8.21 US dollars per gallon (3.78 litres.)

Prices in this area of Southwestern Ontario were generally 94 cents CDN yesterday, or about $3.02 US dollars per US gallon (3.78 liters), coming down a bit from over $1.30 per litre right after Katrina.

Another station in Chatham (about 50 miles from Detroit on the 401 freeway) was charging $1.50 CDN per litre, or $4.82 US dollars per US gallon.

When a gas station charges way more than the cost of filling the existing storage tanks, that is GOUGING, no cutesy way around it. They should only be allowed to charge more based on what that future shipment actually costs, plus a reasonable retail markup.
