Ok. If you live in Victoria B.C. Canada, you know this:
When gas prices rise, they go up all at the same time.
It is because the supply of gas in Victoria is controlled by the criminal underworld.
That is right.
That no one (the government included) can touch.
Prices in Victoria are generally higher than anywhere else in North America. And they always go up to the same price at the exact same time.
Because all the stations in Victoria are influenced by criminal elements.
Call it price fixing. It is what it is.
We are at the mercy of oil companies and banks.
They make huge profits at our expense.
And we take it.
