I almost hate to watch the business report on the news lately. Our dollar is at 3 cents over par with the US dollar, driving down export sales, which is sure to effect manufacturing jobs. Oil is trading at $105.00 per barrel and that drives the price of everything up. I saw in the paper...

There’s a lot of times I question the effectiveness and accountability of all our levels of government in this country, but I must say when you see what is going on around the world, thank God we live where we do. On the lighter side. Our daughter has provided my sweetheart and I with two...

As the weather is warming up we have seen some downward movement on propane pricing.  Nothing substantial yet but at least it’s moving in the right direction.  Hope everyone’s budget survived the major part of the heating season. Great to see Canada do well at the Olympics, although by the end of it I felt...

The low propane prices we saw in the fall of 2009 have since evaporated and been replaced with ever climbing propane prices through December 2009 and January 2010.  When I inquire at the supply sources like Sarnia where the majority of propane is stored underground after it arrives from the western provinces by pipeline, I’m...

Well true to form the price of oil has been steadily rising through December and of course propane has been following right along with it. Keep the thermostat down, the windows up and perhaps a sweater on because heating our homes is getting more expensive. All kinds of people spouting off about how and with...
