Thou ist issuing an invitation to politicize. Some have forgotten international climate change prevention understandings, if said souls ever attempted to comprehend such.

I live in Northern Alberta and go over to northeastern BC quite often. Last week, gas was $1.29 all over Dawson Creek (closest to Alberta) and $1.34 another hour west in Chetwynd. Both prices are less than we pay in Alberta an hour east of Dawson Creek. This is opposite to prices in the past when Alberta prices were lowest and Chetwynd much higher than Dawson.

Alberta did add a carbon tax which accounts for part of the change. My theory about Chetwynd and Dawson was that BC reduced the tax for towns close to Alberta. Could they now be reducing it for Chetwynd as well?

Gas for these towns must be coming from Edmonton, Alberta or Prince George, BC refineries.

Last year I never went to BC without a full tank of Alberta gas. This year I have suddenly found myself filling up at Superstore (7.5 cents off in grocery points) in Dawson every time I go over to BC.

Anyone have an insight into this change?

No, the politicians politicized this issue. Making campaign promises of this & that,heck, in your part of the world you pay artificially established prices set by a gov. body instead of free-market economics and competition.

As for climate change? Well, that depends on what time-frame your talking about? 20 years ago? Or 20,000 years ago?

There’s a lot of oil under Alberta because it used to a tropical rainforest. Go to Edmonton in February and tell me how ‘tropical’ it feels. I live near the Great Lakes and several escarpments and a huge moraine all of which were heavily sculpted by a massive glacier that dominated this area for quite a while. Today’s weather here includes an extreme heat warning, it’s going to be 35 C, (95 F) with humidex values of 45 C (113 F.). No glaciers in sight.
