Oil price / gas price divide wider than it's ever been

In Canada. $94/barrel and $1.27 a litre. In 2008, it was $140/barrel
and $1.40/L. The station owners aren't making any more than they ever
did. TAXES and LIBERALS are the cause!
Each L of gas carries almost 40% tax. Add that to the $1000 guzzler
tax you pay on a Mustang. Even if you only drive it on weekends in
the summer...

The cause is the corporatist economic system and monetary policy.
Gasoline is cheap.... in real, constitutional, US$. (defined as a weight of silver). Don't believe me? Check out what a silver US silver dollar with NO COLLECTOR VALUE is worth right now. ah hell a 90% silver quarter.... you'll get a gallon of gasoline and change back.

Let me just fire up the time machine and go back to 1966 and exchange my Canadian change for silver ones.

It's not as simple as blame it on the price of a barrel, or how much who is making off a gallon, or even how much tax is applied.
The times are a-changin' to borrow from Bob Dylan.
The causes are many and accumulative.
