    $7.40 a gallon here in Western Alaska and we aren't the most expensive either.

    Around half that in Anchorage, nowhere near the $2.50 mark. Have not seen that in years.

    I remember when the cheapest gas stations around town charged 23.9/gal.

    Yup, when I was a kid, I mowed lawns for money, and I could fill up my gallon gas can for a quarter, and have a few cents left for the penny peanut machine.

    I remember when the oil industry in the 80's crashed. Lot's of Oil people lost it all, put thousands out of work. There are hundreds if not thousands of Oil Well maintenance/repair companies across Texas that are the first to go out of business when the wells are capped...

    So, it's a two edged sword for us...
    But also bad for Russia, Iran, Venezuela and many other groups that aren't exactly friendly to us.

    Gas here ranges from $2.71 to $2.75

    Easy math--4.4 x price = cost in Imperial.

    The U.S. uses a slightly smaller gallon. Hence, 4 litres would equal a US gallon.

    So, even if I used a US gallon as reference, we are paying, here in Alberta, about 4.00 a gallon for gas, and about 4.80 a gallon for milk.

    In other parts of Canada, gas is much higher.
    I thought that it was roughly 3 liters per gallon

    I think 19 cents is the lowest I ever remember --- could fill up my car for about $4.00 total.

    That was well before I was old enough to drive. I think the lowest I ever paid was around 60
