It's called inflation, Canadians. Something the Obama administration, here in US, denies is happening.

And as long as the Federal government gets 5% of every dollar spent at the pump (plus all the hidden taxes) they will not do anything about it.

To add insult to injury, Canada exports oil and has pump prices as high or higher than the U.S. What drives pump price upward in Canada...refineries, speculators and government taxes.

If this isn't a narrow minded view. Everyone is hurting everyone everywhere and businesses all over the country have already been passing the high costs on to consumers, who are hit twice. At the pumps and in shopping for whatever.
