Another gas fraud rocks metro Vancouver
Yet another unjustified spike in the price of gas at the pumps shows us why we need to break the oil monopoly in Metro Vancouver because we do not have a free market. Peter Rose from Delta wrote into the local paper and asked: "The last time gas prices approached $1.60 a litre the excuse given was that several oil refineries were down for maintenance and it was high demand season. So what is the excuse now?" There is none. Other than the fact that because of the oil monopoly they keep rising the price at the pump whenever they want. These profits aren't going to the employees in Calgary. They are going straight into the pocket of foreign ownership.
