even with that difference its still a hell of alot more expensive.. what unit to you measure your petrol in? ours is £/l of fuel. at the moment petrol is about £1.08 a liter and diesel is about £1.13 a liter.

i think you measure it in gallons over there, so in your currency it would be

2.14374 USD per liter of petrol
2.24277 USD per liter of diesel

if you do it in gallons

it is 3.785411784 UK liters to a US gallon, so for 1 US gallon we would be paying

$8.11493865783216 per gallon for petrol
$8.48980798680168 per gallon for diesel

according to this site:
http://www.eia.doe.gov/oil_gas/petro...home_page.html
an average price for petrol over there is $3.30, okay not quite 1/4 of it, but not far off...

Yeah... gas prices are BS everywhere it seems. the UK is getting screwed pretty bad on them.

It's $3.12 here last I checked. Heh.. I bet it's higher now. Rarely a day goes by where the price doesn't change.. for the worse.

Either if you can afford it or not it still hurts the environment.

That is why the gas is so expensive. I really think they care because their getting richer. Of course the end of Bush`s term is coming so gas will obviously rise. He wants to get as much money as he can before he is done.

I got news for you, you haven't seen a raise in taxes and gas yet buddy!!! You just wait till Obama or Clinton get in office with this Universal Health care. You'll be really cussing out the Government for taking all your pay check.
