    Paying at the Pump

    Just curious how much everyone is paying at the pump?

    Here in Alabama it is around 3.14 a gallon :

    & How much of an effect is it having on your wallet?

    $3.25 yesterday. It was $3.00 just a few weeks ago. Big oil sure got their moneys worth by getting Bush-Cheney into the White House. Remember when we thought $2.00 a gallon was outrageous.

    Over here it's about 1,2 euros/liter, or approximately $7,17/gallon :eek: (if I did the conversions correctly).

    And I think it's equally as bad in the rest of Europe.

    Americans crying about petrol prices is one of my favorite jokes.

    Petrol is sold by the litre here; (roughly) 4.5 litres for every gallon, over £1 per litre, £1=$2.

    $9+ per gallon.

    Conversely, you pay less than 40p per litre, which is cheaper then I've known in my entire life.

    When I was in high school (late 80s) gas was under a buck per gallon. :p

    Yeah but its not as big of a difference when you factor in all of the nuclear warheads and stuff we pay for to keep our prices low.

    I got a bicycle today. My driving days are pretty much over, as I am not part of the rich and wealthy.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    I don't drive but prices in Canada are probably some of the cheapest in the "Western" world (due to a lower dollar).

    Price I remember when I was 6 or 7:
    42 cents per litre.
    (Price I remember from the UK: something like 97 p/litre)

    Price I remember when I was 14 or 15:
    79 cents per litre
    (Price I remember from the UK: something like 1.23 or 1.40 quid/litre)

    Price now:
    Very fluctuating, something between 1.02$ and 1.20$ per litre.
    (Price I remember from the UK: something like 1.75-2 quid/litre)

    I don't drive so it doesn't really matter to me.

    edit dollar/cent prices are in CAD
