Yes, obviously. Cheap gas is pretty expensive for the environment.

Huh? Where do you think all that oil is getting consumed? Not in Alberta.

I actually grew up in the GTA. I love Toronto. I love all of Ontario and Canada for that matter. Only in GTA (and include Guelph in that geographic region) is there this smugness that the paved over farm land, car dependent, consumer driven, heavy industrial zone is somehow superior to everywhere else in Cananda.

Yeah I filled up yesterday at like 78¢. Gotta love Alberta.

Everywhere else it was almost 89¢.

It becomes magically more toxic?

Most people drive the same amount out of necessity, to and from work, etc. Regardless of the cost of gas.

Yep, exactly: https://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/13/busi ... y-one.html

"Low gas prices encourage people to drive more, and to buy more gas-hungry vehicles. Put in a contrary way, high prices are a boon because they discourage driving and limit gasoline consumption."

"The data on fuel efficiency for newly purchased cars suggests that the gasoline price declines of recent months may slow down improvements in fuel economy for the overall fleet at the very moment when reducing dependence on fossil fuels may be becoming more urgent."

It's crazy that despite making up 14% of the population, Alberta/Saskatchewan makes up 50% of the emissions.
Are you being paid / brainwashed by the Rockefeller fund too ?

Obviously! Alberta is supplying energy for North America. What is crazy that you would rather have your oil production come from the US where millions of litres of water are pumped into fractured chunks of subterranean shale that are abandoned every 1-2 years or shipped from the gulf states instead of supporting the Canadian economy. Are you posting these types of comments on the threads about cheap flights to Tokyo? Why are most of your posts on car forums? The hypocrisy of posting this on a site dedicated to promoting consumerism is what is actually crazy.

...so you only buy gas when it’s expensive?

The obesity epidemic is a decent analogy. The increasing availability of cheap, convenient, prepackaged food and fastfood is directly implicated in the obesity epidemic.

That does, of course, not mean cheap food is inherently bad or expensive food is inherently better. It means that cheap and convenient food/fuel encourages bad consumption habits.
