After converting from liters to gallons and doing that, we pay $4.54 Canadian Dollars per gallon

From Google: 4.54 Canadian dollars = 4.09377702 U.S. dollars

So we pay $4.09 US per gallon.

I'm in a semi-rural area too, so the price would be lower as you get closer to metro areas, probably as low as $3.70US or something.

We pay around 1.3 euros/litre. So that would be almost $1.8/litre. I gallon is about 3.8 litres, so we are paying $1.8 x 3.8 = $6.84 per gallon.

yes.... $4 for a gallon is going to kill you... mhmm..

Thats exactly how the system works..

Have it be like $2.50.. seems normal.. whatever.. then crank it up to like $5 or $6... then bring it down to $4.. seems so cheap then..
rinse and repeat.

I remember back when this shit costed $1.22.

Now there's an interesting concept...lol

But seriously , yeah..Prices are becoming outragous, soon we'll all have to get one of those hybrids or something, we'll just have to see.

It would be great if more filling stations brought on the Ethanol though.

I'm paying about 3 bucks. I remember when I could fill up the old Focus for about $25. Now $20 is just under half a tank.

And the mileage ratings for the hybrids are feather-footed. If you drive realistically it's not too much better than the highly efficient small engine cars, but still more costly. If you drive like a grandmother however, go for it.

What kind of bike are you getting Glasseye?
