Time for another gasoline price rant

Have you noticed that gasoline prices in the GTA have been very stable and consistently almost the same across the GTA for the past 6 months or so? I've noticed this as I travel all across the city in my real estate endeavours. As well, I travel to the same location in North York and Etobicoke once per month and pass my 'favorite' Esso station along both routes. In years gone by, I would anxiously anticipate filling up my SUV at these stations once per month because their price was ALWAYS 2 or 3 cents cheaper than Erin Mills.

NOT ANY LONGER! The prices at these two stations is now almost exactly equal to the price in Erin Mills, to the 10th of a cent!

This causes me much concern and I cannot figure out why this would be. After many years, about 9 years, prices are no longer cheaper in other parts of the city compared to Erin Mills.

Have you noticed this disturbing trend yourself? What should or can we do about it? Does anyone care?

Enjoy our first winter storm of the season and drive carefully!

Have a nice day!
