    Last time you bought gas was almost 3 months ago??? Damn, you don't drive much, huh?

    It's killing me the way prices are skyrocketing. The thing that bothers me the most is that the reason prices are so high is that OPEC got together and decided they wanted to raise prices/cut production. So they did. That SUCKS!
    I call it "No-Pants Wonderday," but it turns out the police just call it "Thursday." Go figure.

    Stop weening guys!!!

    Here in Norway were stinking rich of all the oil we haul, but we still gotta pay about 1.3USD for each liter!!!!! (not gallon, 1 gallon = 3.78541 l )

    This means the price for one gallon here is $4.9 USD!!!!!!!!!!! And we are one of the biggest oil-nation in the world!!!!!

    BladeRunner, it's actually closer to £3.50 now (74.9p per litre (unleaded), 4.55itre =1gallon,1gallon= £3.40) which is equivelent to $5.47 per gallon
    Mind you if you run diesel you can get cherry for £1.25 a gallon So I've heard hehe

    It's about time the rest of the nation catched up to our prices here in Seattle. It's been around 1.35-1.45 a gallon long as I can remember! I know it's a dumb ?, but why is gas so damn expensive in Europe anyway?

    In the Uk it is down to the Government, and tax. Take diesel for instance which is the same as petrol (gas) at $4.80. You can buy "red" diesel for use in tractors and anthing not for use on the public roads. That costs about 80p a gallon just under $1.30

    The rest of the amount we pay $3.50, is tax on top of £155 a year road tax, Yet another tax and now they want to start charging for road use with tolls. Unbelieveable !! but true

    A friend just registered at BJ's (simular to Sam's Club) a buyers club. He said they have gas for $1.21 . That's .20 cheaper than the best around here! I am joining!
