I am glad I filled up...

Well, I hope that everyone had a good long weekend! I found myself foolishly driving around Southwest Calgary on Friday trying to find a gas station that was not shut down! After driving to 3 different stations, I finally found one that still had some product. ( and to the teller at one bone dry station: No, I don't want chips or a pop...I want gas! ) I was not surprised to hear about the gas shortage later in the weekend after the fiasco I went through.

On a typical Alberta long weekend, you usually only have to worry about the gas stations jacking the price/litre up due to the "higher demand". I imagine that the franchise owners are probably quite angry that they clearly missed one of the great "gouge" weekends of the summer. Oh well, there is still Labour Day to follow.

Happy Wet Tuesday...
