Prices Actually Went Down, before a weekend.

I thought ‘they’ would be trying to capitalize, big time, on the oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.

But gas prices actually went down as the weekend approaches.

Most stations in town are at 94.7¢ per litre.

Even the MacEwen Full Service Station on Madawaska Blvd that has the Ethanol was at 94.7¢ per litre.

Petro Canada at the Mac’s all night convenience store is at 94.9¢ per litre.

(Maybe I better pinch myself. But I did get some gas before they changed their mind.)

***Remember, there is mounting proof that ‘peak oil’ is a lie. The Earth keeps replentishing our supplies of crude oil and the big oil companies are perpetrading fraud on the rest of us in order to rake in huge profits.There is no shortage. There never was a shortage, There never will be a shortage. Their supply hugely outweighs our demand.***
