Gas In Saskatoon, September 12, 2008.

The price of gas in Saskatoon jumped this afternoon from 134.9 cents a litre to 145.9 cents. That's one of the biggest jumps ever I can remember. They're blaming it on Hurricane Ike threatening oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, which is rather amusing and bemusing given that the oil used to make gas for the Saskatoon market doesn't come from the Gulf, and the refineries are located here, not Texas.

Funny to look at this post 8 and 3/4 years later, when the price of gas in Saskatoon is 93.4 cents a litre. That certainly wasn't what we thought we'd see now back in 2008.
