Gas price gounging pure greed
I don’t know of any company that can raise their prices to the extreme that the oil companies have and not be sued by the government for price fixing, and unfair business practices (price gouging).
Extreme financial terrorism on pensioners and people with fixed income, these raises have added another $150 a month cost to the average driver, but much, much more to the truckers, taxi drivers etc. who drive for a living, all for greed, and that our gutless government receives more tax as a result at the suffering of pensioners, fixed and low income people.
If everyone across Canada stopped buying gas from one of big oil companies for 30 days the prices would come back into line quickly and then if they raised the price again, stop buying from another big oil company across Canada, for another 30 days, or till the prices came down again, to let them be on notice that if they raise gas prices, we the people will stop buying gas from one to the big oil companies across Canada till they drop their price of gas to be in relation to the price of oil, which would mean the price of gas today should be about 85 cents per litre.
This extreme price raises also raises the cost of living and lowers our dollar value in the world so we the people are in a lose-lose situation. Big oil’s excuse to raise prices is that they are fixing something (a refinery or whatever) but if any business here did that they would have no customers in a very short time.
I believe these gas prices could lead to strikes for more wages to pay for this greed. What do you think?
