Has the world gone completely mad? Part 4 – Why Is Gasoline so Cheap in Edmonton?

I can’t believe how many times I have heard on the news lately about how expensive gasoline is. I just don’t get it. I don’t believe I have ever seen gas as high as $1.12/L in Edmonton before but at the same time it has to be cheap because:

  1. Hybrid vehicles are not the #1 selling vehicle
  2. Mini-van and SUV sales continue to increase
  3. City transit isn’t so overcrowded that passengers can’t get on.
  4. People in my neighborhood that live a block away from the school drive to it for school meetings!

When the price of natural gas was the hot topic the government said, “Put on a sweater”.

In that spirit: if you don’t like the price of gasoline, get off your ass and walk 🙂
