Toronto drivers should be prepared to experience gas pains as the price at the pumps climbs higher and higher, a leading gasoline watcher warns.
Gas prices in the city have already jumped by about 13 cents a litre on average over the past month, but that “upward trend" is likely just the beginning, predicts gasbuddy.com which operates hundreds of price-tracking websites such as torontogasprice.com
“I think regular gas will hit $1.20 a litre by the Spring,"Jason Towes, co-founder of gasbuddy, said yesterday. “Depending on what happens with the price of crude oil between now and then, it may even go as high as $1.30 or $1.40.
Gas prices were on the rise all across Toronto yesterday. Here’s a look at gas prices over the last year (cents per litre of regular on average).
one year ago — 92.7
one month ago — 90.1
one week ago —- 99.7

Implementing HST, major program cuts, spending scandals and reform of the civil service are each reasons to demand that the taxpayers be given the opportunity to choose the management team needed. Each party should table its platform on each topic and let us choose the leadership. They may all lie but at least that is a better option than letting the current totally inept McGuinty Liberals continue to waste our money.
柏林圍牆之傾倒，始於八九年初的逃亡潮，過萬人東德人民分別逃往匈牙利、奧地利及捷克諸國。東德士急馬行田，下令嚴禁平民出境，旋令東柏林、箂比錫、德勒斯登等市爆發數十萬人示威，釀成衝突。國勢危在旦夕，東德政治局內的共黨温和派為避免血腥鎮壓，聯手迫使當時的東徳共黨總書記Erich Honecker辭職。既知大勢已去，Erich Honecker於十月十八請辭。十一月九日，東德政府宣佈容許國民自由出，東西柏林數十萬人一時湧至邊界，要求邊境開放，東德守軍見民情高漲，自行決定放棄武力阻撓，開放關口。The Rest is History. http://sakurayen.blogspot.com/
