WHAT!!!!

That equates to $3.45 Aust for 3.78 litres (1 gallon)

I pay $1.56 Aust per litre which equates to $5.89 Aust for a Gallon

$5.89 Aust is $5.11 US.

I'm being ripped off, we produce the crap right here too!!!!!



Don't worry. Canadians aren't faring any better either. We do produce a lot of oil and still at the pumps we pay a heck more then our southern neighbors. The irony? We sell our oil to americans who in turn sell it cheaper in their home compare to us who exported to them. Go figure...

But when the gas station attendant pointed out that if the price rose, filling up might cost a couple of dollars, the smile quickly disappeared from Mr. Gelvis’s face.

“No way! That’s too much,” he said. “If they raise it that much there will be strikes. We’ll have people blocking roads.”


It's over $50 to fill my car. Worth not living in Venezuela though.


It depends on what part of Venezuela we are talking about. It is on my list of possible retirement spots.

If gas was 2.99 in my area you would find me at the nearest pump with a 500 gallon drum....

It is still cheap compared to the uk

There are 4.5461 litres of petrol in an Imperial (i.e UK) gallon of petrol
There are 3.785 litres of petrol in a US gallon of petrol

diesel 142.9p unleaded petrol 137.9p x 4.5 and the dollar us is 1.62 to a £ 1 so the brit gas is above £6 .30
we would be having street party's if fuel was that cheap

Gas here in Tulsa, yesterday was $2.93. One of the reasons for the cost going down. Most the country has already switched to summer blend. If we ran on CNG it would only be $1.90 per gallon.

Honest question, do any of you drive cars that are "sporty".

I feel like the UK is really anti car.

So in high school, many people have cars. At 16 (US). Is that the norm over there? Parents own them ^ to 18 (legal adult) and sometimes a lot longer because it drops insurance rates.

I wasn't allowed to "own" a car until I was 18, technically. I bought my first car (gave parents money, they buy car and register/insure) at 15 years old. Having my car in the garage for 1/2 a year was painful.

It wasn't weird to not have a car, but it would be weird to not have a drivers license by 17.

It is common to hear of car insurance quotes of £ 2000+ $3200 for young drivers or if you live in a bad area , my 50 year old friend is paying £ 2000 for insurance on a 1.4 ford because of his post [ zip ] code , add on $ 10 bucks a gallon gas and it is expensive motoring in the uk .

One way to get insurance down is to get a spy box fitted that monitors what time they drive and speed etc

Is that for 6 moths or a year? I think I'm paying about US $600 (US) a month and that seems crazy high. Two vehicles, one is sporty and the other is an SUV.

Don't drink and drive kids/adults. It costs a lot more than the the $10k to deal with it initially, and you'll feel like an ass for the rest of your life. It's not the money. If you are a decent person your stupid mistake will keep you up at night. Even if you don't hurt anyone. I got lucky.

It embarrasses me to no end. Take a cab. If you can't afford a cab, you can't afford a DUI.

It's all Obama's fault! And Bush's too...

But I have to ask. When was the last time the US bombed a country and the next day gas dropped a quarter?

Overseas petroleum reserves are becoming less relevant in the United States and we should end up becoming a net exporter of petroleum products by the end of this decade.

As for prices here in New Jersey, the station around the corner is $3.01 for cash and $3.07 for credit.

We have been bombing someone nearly everyday for the past decade and fuel prices have gone up and down. If you are referring to Syria their contribution to world petroleum production has been marginalized since 2011.

As of 2011 we have been a net exporter.

Thanks Grim. I was referring in total, I believe the estimate is we will be a net exporter of crude as well since we will not have the refining capacity to handle the production.

The uk is - Anti the poor having cars.
Its not just the fuel thats pricey, its everything to do with owning a car! I recently renewed the road tax on my car and when I received the new disc in the post it included a notice about new road tax rules.

Because of the new rules a car cannot be sold with the road tax still on it. The seller must reclaim any tax still on the car and the buyer must pay to renew the tax.
Such rules hurt the poor! Not only have they the cost of purchasing the car but they also have to find the money for the road tax as well.

New rules about MOT tests have been seriously tightened, again hurting the poor! One of the rules stipulates that any warning lights on the console MUST NOT remain on. My car has a Service light that remains on, it does so because I refuse to take it to the expensive manufacturers service center, yet they are the only people who can turn it off. My car is properly serviced, yet these new rules will put my car off the road unless I pay the greedy manufacturer to turn off the light.

Parking in uk towns and cities has been reserved for the wealthy!
There is no criminal offence for parking in town, you just have to be able to afford to pay the fine. Pay up within 14 days and it costs £30, pay up after 14 days and it costs £60. So, if you can afford £30 you can park anywhere! If your poor you'll have to park so far out of town you'll need to catch a bus!

They are forcing the poor off the road, that way they have to spend their hard earned minimum wage on extortionate bus or train fares.
