Gas prices since the refinery fire

by ,

A fire in a refinery (which one? where?) has apparently dried up all sources of gas for Toronto and we’re being rationed.
Or at least, that’s what I hear.
We haven’t seen any evidence of rationing.
But then we don’t use our car very much.
Glad it has a full tank.

Here’s a chart for the last three months’ gas prices, courtesy of

Toronto gas prices

By the way, 1 barrel = 42 US gallons = 159 litres.
So that $57.09/barrel cost of crude oil at the end works out to US 35.9¢/litre, which is somewhere over CAN 42¢/litre.
Of course, oil has to be processed to get gas, and I’m not sure what percentage of the oil ends up as gas.
Anyone out there have specific percentages?
