Re: Gasoline Prices Below 99 Cents/Litre By Christmas

Of course it drops now as I'm not driving the V8 5mpg mobile as much.

I never really looked at TVs, but electronics seem to be a lot cheaper on US websites whenever I look, even when adding shipping.

In early October I was in Bangor, Maine and TVs were a lot cheaper...

If you actually browse Best Buy in the US and Canada you'll see that it is nearly price parity, if not more expensive, for the same television in the US. They have the occasional sale, but the Canadians do too. They are by no means a "lot" cheaper than on the Canadian side unless you're buying on Black Friday.

It's all Sabre rattling, if they stopped exporting oil,they'd be screwed.

But this gives the Wall St Speculators another excuse to rally the price up.

Maybe the tide of several decades is finally turning and lower fuel and product prices and a higher dollar will become the new norm.

Look at you a wannabe Canadian learning the metric system.

Metric system was legalised in the US in 1866, one year before the formation of the Canadian confederation.

Really? Interesting fact! Yet here we are 146yrs later and America still uses the Standard system.

True, Canada is more metric than the US.

I mean, having [10] provinces, can't get more metric than that.

But the standard system does have its advantages. A pint of beer is just about right.

And the standard system is not without its rationality. In US measure, a pint of water weighs exactly a pound.

We do use metric. Soda (pop) tends to be sold in 1 liter or 2 liter bottles. And of course all medication dosage is metric.

Canada uses some standard too, yes? The Canadian Football League still does everything in yards.

--------------------------

The French originated the metric system as part of the French Revolution.

Where they went overboard was the Metric Calendar.

Instead of weeks, each month was divided into three periods of 10 days each. And the people got one day off every 10, instead of one day off every 7. Needless to say, this was not popular.

I was going to say TECH can be cheaper up here. It was cheaper to my Kingston FB Dimms from Amazon, drive to the border and pay CBI then buy it up here.

When I was looking for a laptop for the kid, just an inexpensive one, $269 in Canada (best buy) with 3 GB of RAM, exact same unit in the USA, $279 with 2GB of RAM (only difference).

booze and milk is still a lot cheaper state side though.

And instead of 10yds for a 1st down you'd have 9m 144cm LOL

I saw 91 this morning at a $1.34, hopefully it comes down a bit more as that's what my car requires.

Dropped to 1.289 from 1.339 2 days ago here in Kelowna. I expect it to go up again any day now. Sunshine Tax? More like the 'anytime we want to rape you' tax.

TGPT is saying that GasBuddy's 99 cents/litre prediction is wrong.

TGPT says 1.09/litre.

Re: Gasoline Prices Below 99 Cents/Litre By Christmas

As the stock market crashes (hint it's about quad what it should be) commodity prices crash with oil being one of the commodities. Next year with America back in recession/depression oil should break the U.S. $34.50 level to the downside which is the last level of heavy resistance. Gas should drop to around $1.25 to $1.50 a gallon in America late next year.

To cushion the blow to the taxpayers for the upcoming huge tax increases to pay for the close to one trillion dollars in real estate foreclosures in the next couple of years. CMHC should be defunct before the end of this year.

Yes imperial units of measure are still used every day in construction.
Buy materials in metric, but plans are in ft.
Bizarre.

It's our usual. Just as everything in grocery stores is in metric, but the recipes are in imperial.

And anything related with movement horizontally, it's all km/h, so many km further and in metres, but start digging down and it'll be inches and feet.
