I could not believe my eyes when I drove past a gas station yesterday to see the sign change from 99.9 all the way to 107.  They must have made a mistake, this couldn’t be right.  When I mentioned it to my husband, he reminded me that the HST took effect July 1st.  It was no mistake, the price was up and that was that.  Even though we were all told that some items would be affected, I did not expect the increase to be quite that high.  I imagine that over the next little while we will start to notice other items and services that fall under the HST.  If you are curious, you can go online to ontario.ca/taxchange

Remember those checks we received in the mail from the government?  I hope that you saved it for the increase, although I know that I had mine spent the minute it came in!
