Gasoline Prices - can you solve this mystery?

How cool is this, a friend of mine sent me the image below
The caption read:
"This was taken in Calgary."

check it out, look where he says it's from, it's exactly the same sign as
the one below and the one below states that it's from
"On the Yellowhead Highway #16 in northern British Columbia"

...with all the exact wording below the gasoline prices

So someone in the one of the images has done a cut and paste job!

I'll believe the one from Esso in Canada before I believe the image from
Exxon form the US

I could be wrong, but it would be just like an American to take a Canadian
sign, cut and paste it onto an American Icon (EXXON) and take the credit....
the internet and people are amazing in how they manipulate things

Does anyone know for sure which one is the correct sign?

The other Joke here is that we in Toronto and most of Canada are paying just over $1.20 per litre of gasoline, whereas most of the USA is paying about $3.50 per USGallon, when you do the conversion we are paying about $4.54 per USGallon or converting the other way Americans are paying about 92.6 Cents/Litre - we are getting overcharged for gasoline in Canada!

If the price in the USA were $4.54 per gallon, US citizens would revolt!

The other point that I am trying to make is that we can't forget that what
we are viewing and reading could be dis-information or even worse, complete

Be careful out there

All the best

Current Toronto and USA Gasoline Prices

Prices for regular gasoline in Toronto and GTA middle of March 2011 $123/litre due to Libya and Egypt unrest, the price of fuel was $3.49/USGal during most of our trip to Florida during our March Break March 11 to 19th


How high can and/or will it go? Your guess is as good as mine!

All the best!


PS- it should be very interesting to see what the price of gasoline will be at the fuel dock at Port Credit Harbour Marina, typically the price is 10 to 15 cents per litre higher than on land, ouch!
