£1.34 a litre here in the UK.....4.54 litres in a gallon.....$1.54 dollars to the pound....$9.36 a gallon!!!!
And you think you have it bad over the pond LOL.
there is 3.79 liters in a gallon not 4.54. I personally think that the metric system makes much more sense. liter, meter, etc. Not gallon and miles and blah blah blah.
It seems the US gallon and the UK gallon are two different measures !
UK is 4.54 litres per gallon.
US is 3.78 litres per gallon.
Who'd have thunked it.

In Portugal, we´re paying about 1,63€ for one litre of gasoline...considering our minimal wages of about 485€ a month,it´s getting unbearable.
I´m spending about a tenth of my salary just to get to work, and I live right next door and just use my car for this purpose... and most of us drive silly little cars around here, no big V8´s nor V6´s...
We are all chocking to death really...

I don't want to start another thread on CIGS, but DAMN, down in manhattan you will pay 14 dollars average for a pack of newports, down in brigantine, atlantic city area (not sure if this goes for other parts of jersey) you can get TWO packs of newports for 15 dollars (when you buy two). UNREAL!!!!
When it gets so cigarettes though, its cheap here!!
For a pack of 20 brand name cigarettes, its about 2.50 - 3.50 dollars!!
You can even find cheaper ones that is about 1.50 for a pack of twenty.

This article by The Oil Drum predicts that oil prices will dramatically decline the first half of this year to $45 - $55 a barrel. Let's hope. I've been a home-based employee in Texas since October 2011 so I haven't felt the burden of high gas prices lately but of course I'd like the price of gas/oil to drop, since high gas prices makes the price of goods go up.
