Well, it seems there has been a rise in oil volumes by rail once again over the past year. The trouble with the rail scenario is prices are too volatile for a refiner to commit long term. It could be profitable for a few months, then they are back to overseas oil. If you have to buy tanker cars they are looking to put them into service for 30 years ,not 3. So the infrastructure in rail is not likely to grow capacity. ;)

Price at the pump is 1.25/litre and the prime minister charges us another 4.5% since April of this year, a necessary commodity for any working person, and calls it climate action. I call it for what it is, it's BS. I'm burning just as much gas as I ever did. I don't see it changing as long as they have it for sale.

We're being charged for an idea dreamed up by someone in another nation. And the dreamer isn't paying any of that tax. :D

In the middle of Canada, Winnipeg, gas is at $1.11 per litre.
A few observations:
1.) Years ago, it was getting more and more difficult to build pipelines. First Nations objections, species at risk, climate changes accords, endless etc.  etc.
2.) Warren Buffet bought Burlington Northern Railroads about 10? years ago. Hmmmm?
3.) I'm seeing an endless line of shiny new tanker cars carrying Alberta oil to points East.
Conclusion: Buffet can connect the dots better than most. 😆 $$$ 😆 
I'm gonna guess that he makes a bit more money than most of us sawmilling types.

How does diesel price compare between New York and Ontario/Quebec? Later this month a few of us are going on a walleye trip to the Kipua area entering Canada from I-81 NY. My PU has a 65 gal tank so should I fill up in NY or wait until in Canada?

According to the rails they aren't jumping on the band wagon with both feet. Crude is only 3% of their business and their is no one making long term contracts. The new rail cars you see is because of laws that govern their use. They had to replace the old warn out stuff. And there is a lot of politics over pipelines, especially new ones, both nationally and internationally.

Railways mull crude opportunity as pipelines face political pressure - BNN Bloomberg

I don't think there's ever a good reason to buy fuel in Canada if it can be had from the US.

Just paid $3.819 for 19.8 gallons or $75+! :-\
Prices have plummeted ::) over the summer.  Down to $3.33/gal for regular and 15 bump per grade.  Guess its time to fill up all my gas cans for working up the hill.  Diesel is hanging around $3.90/gal.

SC 2.19 regular
Diesel 2.52
Kind of interesting I saw driving across state regular as high as 2.59 and diesel at 3.15. I don't understand the variations. I was in Ohio last week and diesel was 4 cent less than regular. Go figure......

I don't understand the variations.
I don't see the reason, either.  I see up to 60 cents variation in just a few miles.

Gas, here in Russell is $2.919 for 87oct.

Gas is slightly higher in Canton.  Several stations and more competition there!
