Heck, many have natural gas pipelines directly into their living spaces. What’s the big deal about a gasoline pipeline to your driveway?

Perhaps in the past it was more dangerous to have gasoline pipelines, but now we have improved valves, remote shutoffs and sophisticated monitoring. Things we never had when we started doing gas pipelines.

Fuelsrv already operates a mobile gasoline delivery service in Metro Vancouver and has a contract to fuel the Evo fleet.

Maybe it’s good to control access.

People won’t generally break into a gas line or an oil tank, but they’ll want to steal gasoline if they can. They already do it by puncturing gas tanks in peoples driveways.

Perhaps, but with it 3' underground and sophisticated monitoring for losses, maybe it can be kept secure.

That's a whole lot of infrastructure to service something that can move and get itself to a station.

Your house can't do that.

It's not the supply that's the issue, though.

 

Besides, the extra 53 cents per litre pays for your future doctor.

I doubt very much that my future doctor has even been born yet.

National gas prices are continuing their rise to staggering highs this weekend, with drivers in Vancouver told to brace for as much as $2.34 per litre at the pumps.

Figures on the fuel tracker GasBuddy show the national average price of regular gas reached $1.95 per litre on Saturday afternoon, with provincial averages peaking at $2.15 in Newfoundland and Labrador and $2.11 in British Columbia.

I guess we know how the Province plans to fund the RBCM rebuild.

...Across B.C., the average price was 216.5 cents per litre, while across Canada the average cost of gas was 199.8 cents per litre, according to Gas Buddy.
