So you Americans think you're paying big time for your gasoline...
Just have a look at the fuelprices of Royal Dutch Shell;
1 litre Euro = Euro 1,25
1 Gallon = 4,5 litre (4,546 to be exact), which makes Euro 5,625/Gallon.
1 Euro = 1,20 American Dollars
1,2 x 5,625 = 6,75 Dollar/Gallon !!!!
Thank God I live near the Belgian border. The prices in Belgium are a little lower. I still have to pay 1,08 Euro/ltr. though.
So better stop driving your big wheels, because those prices will double or even triple in no-time.
