Gas pains

What is the deal with the price of gas here in Vancouver?

I go work in the morning and lately it has been in the neighbourhood of $1.16 per litre. Usually on my way home from work (sometimes it is later in the evening), the price has dropped to about $1.10 per litre. Then the next morning it is right back up again and then back down that evening. This has been going on for months.

At one point there it was a 10 cent jump and drop between mornings and evenings.

I dare someone to try and convince me that this kind of price fluctuation is due to the price of oil.

While I believe the price of gas should be high to help protect our environment, I don't have many vehicle choices and very few of them are great fuel economy - can you imagine me trying to squeeze 3 strapping boys, a child in a booster seat and a German Shepherd into a Smart Car?

Hmmm. Next time I am short of money for gas, maybe I should see if I can raise funds based on how much of my family I can fit into a Smart Car.
