Last week, I was reminded that driving in Canada and in major centers can be expensive. I tend to take it for granted since I have limited choices. We did some cross-border pickup of items at a postal office and took the opportunity to fill up at the same time. Here are the price discrepencies I encountered along the way.
- $1.42 per litter – In Greater Vancouver
- $1.22 per litter – In Abbotsford (outside the region for public transit)
- $1.11 per litter – In Sumas U.S.A (simple conversion)
- How much of a mortgage could you replace if you could live close to work?
- Is there another way to collect the necessary funds?
- Fuel prices in Europe are even higher, should it be higher here?
