regular 1.50$ a litre

Yep fuel here in mtl is $ 1.50 a litre regular and i take 91 octane at $ 1.75 for my dl 1000!

luckily in the regions outside mtl it is cheaper by 18 cents.

for sure it will reach a $2.00 this summer.

think i'll go to u.s for my vacation price will be cheaper even if the american dollar is more expensive.

damn expensive province with there $553 license plate now the price of fuel!

If my math is worth a darn that's about $5.68 a US liquid gallon?
$3.059/gal this morning for Top Tier 87 octane regular here in SE Wisconsin.
But also factor in the cost of body armor should you visit.
And you are more than welcome to.

Where is "Mtl"?
And you may not want to know what motorcycle registration costs here.
But, I feel it's my duty to tell you.

MTL is a common abbreviation for Montreal.

It cost me $29 to fill up my tank yesterday

Seriously considering licensing my 225 for commuting.

Mtl is Montreal Quebec.

His plate cost is off set by cheap beer prices and where the drinking/ marijuana age is 18.

The tax on fuel in the U.S needs to increase dramatically. Road maintenance is not cheap.

Beer isn't cheaper here than in the US, but it's got twice the alcohol content. Cheaper than Ontario though I think.

Got to do the CAD->USD conversion first. Ends up being about $4.39/gallon, about 40% more expensive.

Body armor aside, we pay for it in bent rims, pinch flats and broken suspension components.

People who think Montreal taxes go to road maintenance haven't been here.

Philly has dreamy roads compared to Montreal. We don't have twisties in the city but none of us have chicken strips, just from avoiding potholes.

They'll find other way to pay for maintenance rather than overtaxing people like here in Canada ... I travel to US quite frequently, roads down there are in much better shape than ours.
