U.S. and Canadian averages lurch forward

GasBuddy Blog -- The national average has started to lurch forward in the last few days, being pushed higher by refinery turnarounds and other kinks in both the United States and Canada. At latest check, the U.S. national average is up about 12c/gal in the last week, while in Canada, prices have climbed 3.5c/L.

Already prices in Los Angeles have vaulted forward, in addition to other SoCal areas. I'd be remiss not to include the lucky Great Lakes, who in addition to seeing significant widespread price hikes today, also saw a refinery explosion outside Toledo, Ohio, at a refinery. There is no word on initial damage, but wholesale prices have ticked higher throughout that region on panic of the refinery explosion.

Make no mistake- virtually...

If you can afford the gas, you will find a lot less people on the highway taking leisure drives. That frees the highway up for me to take a leisurely drive!

I am not being selfish, it's just a statement of fact. The highways would be a lot more crowded if we had dollar a gallon gas.

Our pump prices up $.10/Lr. over last 24 hours, and it just happens that all local stations happen to have the exact same price, appears to me these companies are working together setting prices.

This article is wrong the price of fuel has gone up 9 cents a litre here in Alberta. I wonder where did this 3.5 cents litre come from?

...and they are preparing the North American public for even higher prices this Spring. Like they care about the general economy, only their own pockets lined with gold.

More speculator and greedy oil company BS !

Maybe the US and world govts. flooding the world full of cheap money might be a bit more realistic. The Mideast and other oil production areas in a constant war footing and expolsions at Mexican oil headquarters aren't causing higher crude prices? The US govt. and green dreamer citizens make it near impossible to build refineries.

No speculators or oil companies could raise oil prices more than clueless politicians and their green dreamer supporters!
