Some stations lowered the price late last night so I got gas for 100.9 from Petro but unfortunately I had room for only 25 liters...

WE tanked up tonight in view of the impending rise and with a long weekend on the near horizon methinks it will be up more next week.

En-Pro gas price expert Roger McKnight tells 680News gas prices are expected to rise two cents at midnight, to an average price of 104.9 cents/litre at most GTA gas stations.

Reuters -- Brent crude oil prices shot up nearly 6 percent on Thursday after Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies began a military operation in Yemen, although Asian importers said they were not immediately worried about supply disruptions.

Email from TGPT at 5:51 PM today says prices to fall to 102.9 Thursday. ???? They've been 102.9 all day in Mississauga. One Pioneer station was 101.6.

Well, prices did change, DOWN 1 cent to 102.9. This is the second time in the past week where there has been no notification, and the price has gone up or down. 680 News has the wrong price for today and tomorrow. They discontinued allowing comments.

I am wondering why don't they increase the price up to $2 a liter? Who's gone to stop them? Would we have any option?

OK, adding another 20% and we get to 84c/liter... and increasing margins is just like I could increase my salary by myself!

Margins did not increase by 20 cents!

One year ago, when gasoline price was around 130c/liter, the price of crude oil was almost double, why the gasoline price is not also half of that price, around 70c/liter?

Yet the price of oil keeps dropping to record low levels. So how come we're not paying record low prices? I know the CDN dollar is low but I still think there is some serious gouging going on!

Gasbuddy actually tracks that info right under your handle, Troll.

But, I agree with you re new members seeming to receive a disproportionate number of gas cards. One can draw their own conclusion.

It looks like tgpt.ca is stuck at 106.9 for Richmond Hill for days now. But other areas of GTA and TO are correct...

speaking of lame, this from a member who has posted 3 times in 4 years. Me thinks you should quit as it's obvious you have no real interest in participating.

I tried to see the videos by installing the app but my smartphone is too old and I can not access them so it is not enough to have a smartphone but you need a recent one!

no change for tomomrrow Sunday.

I think the extra points you can get by watching video game clips is kinda unfair to some members who maybe don't have a smart phone, or have a limited data package. Not so sure this venture was well thought out.

You have to watch 5 videos to get an extra 1,000 points every day... my data plan is unlimited but my phone is not so smart so who knows how long would take it to download all those movies... but hey, you can watch those videos using WiFi for free at home or at McDonald :)

Zippylady: Thanks for your post. One buddy was 1170 points behind me last Sunday. Today he is 2,345 points ahead of me. That's 3515 points more than what I've made this week. You don't get that many points from watching videos or answering if you can pay cash or credit, at least in my humble opinion, unless there are a ton of videos and other ways of increasing your points total. I rest my case.

Tramguy, if one uses a smartphone, one can get extra points. If you check out the threads in Talk Back To Us, you will find more details and objections. Not everyone has a smartphone, that factor alone makes it unfair IMO.

Forgot an important bit, you have to watch some video ads to get the points....if I have it right. We won't be using expensive data plans to watch ads that benefit GB.

Please excuse this post as I couldn't find an appropriate thread to register it. The USA gas buddies must be having double points this week. Two buddies have passed me that were over a thousand points behind. You just have to look at the 30 day leaders and the top ones are around 47,000. Normal is in the 30,000's. The last few occasions when we had double points, no one gained ground. So I hope the Canadian gas buddies will have a double points week to match that of the Americans and restore us to our proper rank. Only fair!! Has anyone else noticed this? Time to let the mods be aware! It can't be "Tell a Friend" which could only total 1,200 points.
