Gas pump

CORNWALL, Ontario - Cornwall drivers are paying just as much, if not more, than their counterparts in Toronto for gasoline today.

A quick scan of gas prices in Cornwall suggests motorists will have to fork over an average of $1.41 a litre.

That's a little more than the average $1.40 per litre being paid in Canada's largest city.

Just 24 hours before gas prices in Cornwall were less than $1.35 a litre.

Gas prices haven't been this high in Ontario since the spring of 2011. At that time people started conserving gas, and cancelling trips to avoid costly pump prices.

The news isn't good for the future either. There are reports suggesting the U.S. Department of Energy is preparing documentation to suggest there is actualy a gasoline shortage in that country, which could push the price per litre even higher.

    There is no shortage, period. Once again, the poorest, with the least disposable income, will suffer the most; with higher food prices and fuel. This is just another way to separate you from your hard earned income. Sad, very sad.
