Somewhere, far away...

a light bulb flickers on...

But looking at the pie graph on the side of the pump made me realize why filling up my car down south was less expensive than here in Canada: taxes.

Americans pay less in fuel taxes than we do, and that's the primary reason why gas is - dollar for dollar, litre for litre - cheaper than it is in Alberta, despite the fact that we "make" the stuff in our own backyard.
