How to know if you’re running out of gas in Canada
If you’re struggling to find gas in your car, it might be because you’re in Canada.
According to the Canadian Gas Corporation, the country has the second-highest number of vehicles on the road, with the average gas-guzzling vehicle making up 8.5% of the nation’s vehicle fleet.
In a recent report, the CRTC said that since the beginning of 2019, the average number of gas-filled vehicles has been growing faster in Canada than in the United States, while vehicle miles traveled have fallen by over 3% in the same time period.
That’s not good news for people who are struggling to get by with the amount of gas they’re paying for.
Here are some other facts to keep in mind:There are about 1.3 billion Canadians living in rural areas, according to the CRT.
That’s up from 1.1 billion in 2014.
The population has also grown by 2.6% since the mid-1980s.
In the past 20 years, the number of rural residents has more than doubled, from 8.1% in 2014 to 13.1%.
The population of Saskatchewan is currently estimated to be around 7.5 million, up from 7.1 million in 2014 and 7.4 million in 2013.
The CRTC also reports that the number in Canada of people who have visited the emergency room for a COVID-19 related respiratory illness has increased from 3.6 in 2014, to 3.9 in 2019.
This number was more than triple the number from the year before.
