CALGARY - Conflict on the other side of the world is expected to drive up gasoline prices here in Canada.

Roger McKnight, an analyst with En-Pro International, said Friday that he sees pump prices rising by more than two cents in the Toronto area on Saturday to around $1.42 a litre.

I guess to me it really means oil is priced globally since we have so much here now. And of course oil companies and speculators need more money.

I sure wish my wages were as flexible as gas prices!!!

Excuse me Boss, gas prices went up so I need to raise my prices.

Excuse me Boss, there is some problems some where in the world so I need to raise my prices.

Excuse me Boss, the liberals want to force their beliefs on me and take away curtain rights and no longer enforce the Constitution so I need to raise my price.

Speculators are the biggest price fixing lie created and have no real cost or supply analysis what a joke.

Greedy speculators always have an excuse to raise prices, but world economies still not being able to recover doesn't matter to them and prices just keep going up. We are paying record-high gas prices in Toronto today.

They've been fighting over there for years and will continue to do so. And what about all our new found gas & oil here? It's all just speculation BS!

Rising gas prices based on Irag. Bunch of BS!! It is only the speculators that are driving up the price of oil and gas based on Irag. There is no way that Irag will affect the supply of gas and oil in NA even if it was a full scale conflict. Someone is just out to make money on this event as usual!!

Wall Street has predicted 10 of the last 3 recessions. They are always reported as jittery.
