It is a salient point.
No, it isnt. First of all a lot of non-Canadians are buying gasoline in Canada and there is no reason they shouyldnt be paying an Opec price. Second, if gasoline in Canada becomes cheap as in Venezuela or Iran half of USA will be buying gasoline there and no, you cannot card everybody at every gas-station. Third, a lot of Canadians who pay high $$ for gasoline do not really need them so it is a way for Canada to provide some extra padding for all the asses of lazybags and generally self-entitled crowds that you have grown there.
It's rumored that Wall Street has made off with lotsa padding. Way more than the crowds you berate are rumored to have.
