It's all about the money. Supply and demand has nothing to do with it except demand is high and price gouging is occurring. Supply is also high, there should be minimal increase if any at all. Any increase is 100% Gouging. It's research driven and scientist tested.

What?

Demand goes up and price goes up.. As demand lessens price slowly returns down. How is that not Supply and Demand?

Prices going up when demand goes up is price gouging and not Microeconomics 101?



Don't like it? Don't buy it.

Our just completed holidays to BC, Golden and Revelstoke were at ~ $1.21 to $1.23 so way higher than Calgary. Kootenays were a little lower (around $1.13) but overall everywhere was higher than in Calgary. What was it in Kamloops?

Has anyone found gas consumption by week to see how long weekend demand differs from adjacent weekend demand? I looked for it but could only find monthly consumption and production chart.

The underpinning of the entire false naritive that gas is more likely to increase on a long weekend is based on demand being higher. I would agree it is higher but is it actually significantly higher? You already have vacation driving season driving up consumption so is the extra driving on long weekends as opposed to regular weekends significant.

Fatalities go up so that suggests some increases in km driven but I really want to know the extent.
