Foodgoddess, thank you for that link. That's a very interesting site. I wonder if occasional random audits are performed to ensure the affiliated sites (, for example) are posting accurate information.

lol I just clicked the link and its broken??? anyway I believe it is updated on a fairly regular basis....and I cant see these gas stations hiring a little man to run out and change the gas price signs every hour lol
"it's $1.67 and by the time he gets inside it goes to $1.98....runs back, changes sign, whew

Once a day maybe

as for audits...let's hope

"1 Gallon = 4,5 litre (4,546 to be exact), which makes Euro 5,625/Gallon."...

You're talking about UK gallon. A US gallon is about 3.8 liters...

I bet gas was 25cents a gallon back then. That picture cracked me up. The Cadi's look alot different now all covered in graffiti not near as pretty.

It's a toy UFO and I've lived here all my life 35 years.

You Americans should come to UK - then you'd complain!!

Price here - unleaded 1.77 a litre approximately (depending on location).

Check it out here

And, if there's about $1.8 to the ... Bring on the "gas guzzlers"!!

I live in Penticton B.C. Canada. Gas just when up to 84.5 cents/liter.
So for you Americans there is 4 liters in a Gallon.
4*84.5 = $3.38(1.35 - Conversion Rate) = $4.39 Gallon. Also I belive that an American Gallon is bigger than our Gallons by like .4 Gallon. (i think)

Its robbery.]

No complaining here, I ride a bike

as for gas being .25 cents, I remember that well

and .10 tacos and my first barbie and where I got her and the list goes on and on, but I can't for the life of me remember what day it is lol

My brother and Stanley Marsh were good friends and I recall going out there many times. Too bad it's me it is anyway

Okay, I admit I'm an American and have no idea about the cost of living in England.

If the gas prices in England are so high ($4-6US), is the hourly wage higher there? Are the food prices higher also? How much of your gas price is tax?

Sorry if I'm OT. I'm 2 hours South of Chicago and paying $1.86/gal.

im paying a dollar and eighty one cents here for supreme unleaded at the Rockefeller owned exxon.

I just filled up here in North West Ohio and paid a whopping $1.99 gal.

whew, I'm leaving for vacation in 35 days and driving from Ohio to Myrtle Beach SC... better add some money to the gas fund.

$1.85 per gallon is the norm, I would have to search to find the cheapest which is $1.81 at Hess and Racetrak

posted on Apr, 27 2004 @ 08:00 PM
It's $1.79 unleaded out here in Ohio.

posted on Apr, 27 2004 @ 08:00 PM
Since I live in boston I can say that the gas prices are the highest.

1.92 at one gas station

even more for premium gas

I go with the normal gas because I am a normal person

I lived in England with Pisky for a while I can definitely say that while gas and hourly wages are higher then the states, food is definitely cheaper. IF you buy it at the grocery store and it depends on the store too. Pisky and I always shopped at ASDA and we would bring back twice as much food as I can get here for the same amount of money. I've never seen a can of baked beans here for 9 cents or a loaf of bread for 15 here, put it that way. And I respect England for keeping food affordable for the people. On this issue America really doesn't seem to give a #. They'll allow a grocery store to sell a bag of potatoes for 5.00. They don't care if people starve or not.

But back to topic. We're currently in Oregon and gas is around 1.95, and that's for regular unleaded. But we're full service too, and one of the last remaining states where self-serve is illegal. I thought the self-service was supposed to make gas cheaper in the states that have it. That was the rationale for it being up for the vote here a few years ago anyway.

Now if I could get Bob Lazar to back- engineer my hoopdi maybe I'd get better mileage.
Better yet....I'd

Running about $1.92 here to $2.12... I know in January of 1999 into 2001 until September 11... they were $0.87.

Something is a little off on this one... $0.87 to $1.46 in 20 seconds on September 11, that's exactly what had happened.

I dont really look at the daily price but i know last i looked it was in the low 2.00 to 2.50. I live in southern californa. My car has a 25 gallon tank and my truck much smaller. I was surprised when i put in 40.00 and only got a 3/4 tank. If i only had a disposable child to sneak back some oil from iraq. How would i refine it for cheap.
