With the recent drop in gas prices I couldn’t help but be reminded of a great little resource that I used to use back when I still owned a car. GasBuddy.com keeps track of local gas prices all across North America through user-submitted updates.
If you’re wondering who has the cheapest gas between work and home or whether or not it would be cheaper to fill up here or an hour out of town while you’re on your trip, GasBuddy has got you covered.
Anybody remember the McDonald’s Hallowe’en pumpkin pails? When I was a kid these were all the rage. They debuted back in ’86 and underwent a number of changes over the years.
While I’d normally take the opportunity to ramble down memory lane about and chitter chat all about my memories of the pumpkin pails, I thought I’d let somebody else do all the heavy lifting this week.
Over at SydLexia they’ve put together a comprehensive history of the McDonald’s Halloween pail, complete with tales of their youth. A tiny bit of their language is NSFW, so don’t hop over if you’re easily offended or planning on reading it to little ears.
Also — the house that gives out $1 McDonald’s gift certificates is the coolest house on the block. ‘Nuff said.
Thinking about giving someone the gift of reading this holiday season? Why not give yourself the gift of savings too! Chapters.ca has a huge selection of clearance books ranging from $2-$5 in their clearance center.
I was out for a walk last night when I saw something I honestly never thought I would see again in Canada — gas under $1.
It’s been a few years since I’ve owned a car, but as a concerned former motorist I’ve tried to stay as aware of current gas conditions as I can. And while I know things have been going down, I never in a million years would have expected it to be under a dollar. But there it is — 99.7.
It’s not just an anomaly either — the Esso down the block was at 99.9. Now maybe if we all wish hard enough we can magically transport back to the days of 62.5.
Sorry about the poor picture quality — that’s what a cheap cellphone in the middle of the night will get you. How are gas prices in your neck of the woods?

I’m also still looking for help in the Tech Blog Section since I’m hoping it can become a major source of info for all good electronics deals. If you’re interested I can be reached at smartcanucks |at| gmail dot com
