For me, a 66L tank would cost... about $135 CND to fill. I haven't
driven my car in over a month now cuz I can't afford to keep filling
the tank!! And the prices just keep going up :-(


I just wonder what will happen when people cannot afford to go to
work? We always think of the doctors and nurses, teachers etc as
essential workers. But what about the lower paid shop assistants? If
they can't afford to get to work then how does everybody else buy
essential goods like food? This is a worldwide phenomenon.


Oh yes, it's a worldwide phenomenon. In France, the cheapest I can find is 132 €,
that is about : 150US$ in order to fill my 80L Peugeot 406 tank. Gas is cheap in
north america !! and it can be as expensive as 168US$ !!


I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
PLEASE DON'T drink and drive it's not clever, it's just stupid.
