the bad news isn’t over

The Canadian government has taken the approach that “what’s good for big oil is good for Canada,†McTeague said. “It’s driving the price to the breaking point for many people.â€

[color:purple]REALLY?!? our government isn't trying to help out the consumer? they are friends of big oil. who new? at least we've got stability. imagine the chaos otherwise.

but hey - let's just keep investing in the tar sands. we wouldn't want to be investing in alternatives and become world leaders in alternative energy production and technology. nope - let's follow our neighbours to the south as they move towards third world status. Are they the worlds first "undeveloping" country?

Governments bailing out dinosaur car companies was a short-term fix too. And those fuckers (GM, Ford etc...) still aren't investing enough into alternative technologies... and they had the time. No matter in the long run. Less reliance on cars is healthier for the environment in the long-run.

Ford didn't get a bail out and does actually put quite a bit into R&D into alternative energy sources. True story.

Could be worse, I suppose.

A random sampling of world gas prices from wiki, in US dollars per litre:

Eritrea $2.13

Estonia $1.80

Finland $2.30

France $2.28

Germany $2.30

Greece $2.29

From the same list, I see in Libya gas is only seventeen cents a litre.
