Lift up your hand if gas prices make you want to cry…
Petro Canada put out a video on YouTube explaining why gas prices are so damn high. So being a curious beaver that I am, I decided to check it out. Obviously like I expected, I felt really hateful.
Watch the video before you read the rest, as it will make more sense.
They compare crude oil prices to … coffee beans. That’s right, crude oil to coffee beans. Guess what, a cup of coffee costs as much as a litre of gas and we don’t seem to mind buying coffee.
Sometimes I swear they think that we are intellectually challenged.
Honestly when was the last time I went to Starbucks to fill up with 60 liters of coffee? Well let’s see, there was that one time … NEVER. You can live without coffee, because lack of coffee does not stop you from functioning (hello coffee junkie), earning money and being
popular punctual. Lack of gas kind of doesn’t get you anywhere? Sure we have “green” cars that cost more than regular cars but holly smokes gas is nothing like coffee.
“So why does the price of gas go up and down everyday? And why does the price of gas depend on the day of the week and hour of the day?“
Well that’s a really good question. The answer is quite simple because no matter what they tell you, oil companies post profits every damn quarter. They must think we are dumb and haven’t clued in to the fact that they are all billion dollar corporations and their only concern is to fuck us over. Did you say an oil King farted in the middle east? Oh my lord, we must add an extra 10 cents because god forbid he just might have diarrhea tomorrow.
