Haha you Americans think you have it so bad, here in UK we pay almost £6 a gallon, in your money that would be around $12!!
However most of that is tax, I think about 70% or possibly more. The government know the elasticity of demand with fuel is such that they can ramp up
the price and the idiot public will still pay. BAck when I 1st started driving 8 years ago the price of fuel was almost exactly half what it is now,
even that was considered expensive.
Its now got to the point where its affecting peoples jobs and livelihood, something needs to be done but nobody seems to want to do it??
