Well, it's the wee small hours of the morning. I gassed up my car just before midnite (along with every other joe waiting in line at the last moment) for gas at $1.49.5/litre. As of today, July 1, 2008, gas prices in B.C. have hit an all-time high of $1.50+litre. Then kick in our new provincial carbon tax designed to discourage motorists from driving - an additional 2.4c/litre for each and every fillup from here on. At the stroke of midnite, gas went up to $1.52/litre at my corner station or $5.76/ gallon U.S. Horse and buggy's looking pretty good right about now!
