It also has to do with the number of refinerys that are out there. I know up here in Canada, there are only 3 all the small independent companys buy from there. The thing is that gas could become cheaper if there wasn't a monopoly on it. The 3 main companys set the price up here and there is nothing that can be done about it. And one other biggie is that no one wants to build anymore 100,000,000,000 refineries because they don't know if cars will be running on gas in 15-30 years. It takes that long just to pay off some of these big places. I like the idea of the alky fuels but it is harder on the engines. For instantce we just bought a brand new 130HP Honda OutBoard. Anyway, they advise to only run normal gas and not run methonol or ethonol because of the exess water vapor that is created. The dealer said the motor can actually hydrolock from it. guys are lucky down there. Up here after changing over the dollar and going from gallons to litres we are paying $3.25 for that same gallon you guys are.
