Whoda thunkit? Gas is 74.9

Filled up the van today, in preparation for a few trips to Kingston to rehearse a performance of Handel's "Messiah". Gas was 74.9 cents per litre! The bad news is that the same economy that's driving gas prices down is whittling away at my retirement savings. However - it's safe to assume that eventually they'll both edge back up.

The last fill-up with the boat at the local marina was $1.59 per litre. Wish I could trailer Daydream Believer to the local gas-bar and fill 'er up @ .749!! I expect by the time we splash next spring gas will be back up and I'll have to pay $1.50 again.

None of this comes as a shock to us, since we paid $2.00 per litre for gas in Europe in 1995. We've sort of had a sense that North America was just catching up. In August of this year we paid $2.29 per litre for diesel in London, so $1.50 still seems like a bargain. And $ .749 is amazing!!!
