134.9 in Gatineau. Has been stuck there for a while.

No idea about Ottawa since I have not been there in a few weeks.

I can't remember the last time I saw a price below 130. I found an old gas receipt from 2011 and it was only 115 that particular day. Cheapest I've seen in the last year was maybe 116 in Aylmer ON at the No Frills Gas Bar.

127.6 here in Kingston. It's usually a few cents cheaper here than in Toronto or Ottawa.

that's awesome. you should save ~$250 if not more
Costco and GasPlus seem to be the cheapest right now at 116.9.

Fortunately I drive so little and only for pleasure, so price of gas makes no difference to me. That's why I went with a bigger engine in my next car.
Oh yeah, Vancouver gets hosed when it comes to gas prices:

When I went to Vancouver in September, their gas prices were lower than in Thunder Bay.

That's true. And in turn, Belleville is usually a cent or two lower than Kingston. That might be because of Belleville's proximity to the Tyendinaga Mohawk First Nation, which has four or five gas stations conveniently located very close to the 401.

One of the biggest local gas price differentials I saw was a day I was in both Welland and Niagara Falls. The price in Welland was 10 cents higher than in Niagara Falls. Of course, in Niagara Falls you're next to the border.

Has been 133.9 here in the Sault for the last 4 months. Gas is 101.7 for a litre in Sault Michigan. Even with the bridge tolls and the difference in currency, I save just over $20 to fill up in the states.

Wow how big is your tank? It has to be at least 62 liters if you're saving that much.

Montreal was $1.44 too when I was there two days ago. So Vancouver has company.

Bécancour currently $1.32 to $1.35 depending on location. NH was $3.55 when I filled up. Sherbrooke was $1.40 last time I was there.

Apparently all customs stations except three have a tacit exemption for ~5 gallons in a container in addition to your full tank. (Stanstead, QC, is one of those three.)

I always fill up the container to take advantage of the exemption. (The result is that my dad's car (in Bécancour) runs on New Hampshire gas about half the time.)

(I don't feel bad about it, I consider we're taxed enough as is.)

So, my point was, if he does that too, you have to factor the savings for the extra fuel. $20 sounds reasonable for an average-sized car tank + container. Otherwise, he might have a truck.

Aren't truck gas tanks 70L? I gas up the company vans at the gas station next door occasionally and it isn't unusual to get a bill for over $100 per van, and they're just GMC Savanas. That's the equivalent of 77L and they weren't on empty.

The Ford Econolines suck the shit back like it's infinite. We've stopped using them except when absolutely necessary.

Some bigger trucks have bigger tanks. My 4x4 V6 Tacoma is 80 L and larger trucks than that can have 100 L. I love the Tacoma, but you can almost watch the gauge going down while driving, a tank will last me 7-9 days.

137.4 in Montreal this morning.

You can fill up for about 93.9 (3.55$ per gallon) in Vermont. It's really worth the drive south.

129 a litre here in Windsor. Fortunately with my husband working in the States, he always fills up over there for much less! The only time we fill up in Canada is when we are travelling and have no choice but to fill up here.

When I was in Detroit a few months ago, one station was 2.97/G which is only 79/L. Quite a big difference!

I always find it funny how much people obsess over the price of gas. I don't pay much attention to it, it's something I HAVE to buy. With my focus the price difference on a full tank of gas between a gas price being high (1.35 say) or low (1.16) is about $5 on a full tank. Not worth me really obsessing over.

Lots of people here go over to Detroit to cross border shop and buy gas cheaper over there. I shop local so I couldn't tell you how much cheaper it is.

Gas today in Windsor ranges from 128.0-129.9 today.
