GREENVILLE, MI — The average price a gallon of gas in West Michigan reached 2009 levels earlier this week, though several stations now are breaking through a new barrier.
Gas prices reportedly fell below the $2 mark early Tuesday afternoon at $1.99 in Greenville, according to user submitted reports from GasBuddy.com. The prices are the cheapest in Michigan.
When a new station in Oklahoma City just priced its gas at $1.99 a gallon, a rival down the street cut the price by a penny — to $1.98 a gallon. It had to, reports Bloomberg News: At $1.99, cars were lined up in droves at the OnCue station on Shields Boulevard.
As much as the OnCue station in "OK City" wanted to make an impact, it didn't last long. Bloomberg reports that in the evening, a station in the suburb of Moore beat them all with gas at $1.95 a gallon.

Here in the heavily taxed UK, at current exchange rates, and converting a £1.30 litre to US gallons, it is $7.71 per gallon at my local filling station.
For perspective, the UK minimum wage for adults is £6.50 per hour, or $10.20 at current exchange rates, so one would need to work 45 minutes to pay for a gallon here.
Interesting thread OP, cheers for posting.

If the US saw gas at $7 (hell, even $6) the roads would be nearly deserted.
