Default Re: Held to ransom - have to get a bike!

Thanks KG for the info - it puts our gas prices in perspective - went up to $1.10 a litre here in BC this week. Our govt takes 40% of the cost in taxes and even has a tax on a tax but won't budge and reduce those taxes. The news reports that they make 34 million for every cent increase in gas prices so it is little wonder they won't do anything about it. Wouldn't be so bad if they put those taxes back into the roads and highways but they don't - well, about 5%.

You have it so much worse than we do - my sympathies. At least you have a great transit system - but I suppose the cost of riding it is also going up. We have one bus a day in our area and must walk a mile to get to it.
