Gas drops to $0.999/litre in Toronto

About f------ time. It should be lower still.
On the radio, I heard the tax winfall from the increased
gas prices this year will accout for $2B dollars into
federal coffers. That's just due to the increase from
last year. And a whopping 1.5% is given back to the provinces
for road work. Bastards.

Yeah, of which something like 4% of 1.5% is spent west of Ontario. Wait till
Alberta leaves. Gas will be $3.00/litre in Ontario. You guys should care
more about what goes on out here before it's too late.

Speakin' of roadwork... recent roadtrip with the missus, from Mississauga to
N.Bay to Kapuskasing to Thunder Bay to "The Soo" to Timmins to Sudbury to
home..... if you ever get up there.. there's a stretch on Hwy 11... new 2
lane ... straight as an arrow and flat as HURC's head....west of
Kapuskasing.... no lights, intersecting concessions or roads.. just miles
and miles and miles of burntout trees...great shades of "Vanishing
Point".....

I tapped the loud pedal a bit.. sed to the missus "You know what I'd like to
do don't you?"... of course her reply was the dreaded "I'd rather you
didn't"..... mannnnnnn just once to see what she'da topped out at.....

Course I never thot.. we had our foldup chairs in the trunk... coulda
stopped, got her chair out and sed "I'll be back in 5... or 10 minutes"....
