THE CHEAPEST GAS PRICES IN OTTAWA?I went to Merivale Road today to get my hair cut at the Friendly Cuts barbershop inside the Merivale Zellers as well as to rent some stuff from Merivale Blockbuster and to browse the Nepean locations of Best Buy and Future Shop to see if they have any anime that I want to put on my birthday list (but Best Buy didn't have the Strawberry Marshmallow anime either, and the Merivale Future Shop seems to have eliminated its anime section entirely, or moved it somewhere away from the normal DVDs).
On the way down to Merivale Blockbuster, I noticed the sign displaying the gas price at the Esso on the corner with Meadowlands. Now, I'm fully aware that gasoline prices have dropped considerably after their ridiculous highs this past spring and summer, but this is a little unbelievable.
Yep, 00.0¢ (Zero zero point zero cents). "Cheap as Free".
It doesn't get any cheaper than that.
To quote Mihoshi from my favourite episode of Tenchi Universe (Tenchi Muyo TV):
Obviously, they weren't actually giving free petroleum to anyone who passed by. I'd imagine that it's either a glitch with the sign or what is displayed while they're resetting the price (though it was still 00.0 after I had gotten out of Blockbuster).
