Irony – (noun) a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.
In this province that relies on petroleum for most of its revenue and jobs, the irony of the sudden drastic drop in oil prices due to reduced use during the pandemic and a predatory pricing war being waged by OPEC and Russia can not be missed.
Here we are with the lowest gas prices since 2000-01 at an average of 58-62 cents Canadian per liter. In April 2019, they were as high as $1.15.
Now the ironic part. With gas prices so low, nobody is driving anywhere, due to the layoffs, isolation and social distancing of COVID 19. Its enough to drive you crazy.
