Yeah, the folks across the pond...I remember art company took us to Switzerland for an award trip...gas was $5 per liter! I coulda fainted. Of course, I wasn't driving. Just taking the train all over the place.

That's why the folks over there have such GREAT alternative transportation...trains and buses! It it totally convenient and efficient. They were prolly motivated by the price of gas for one! And the folks that do have cars...the cars look like pregnant roller skates! Very fuel efficient!

I wish our town would get on the ball and get our rail running!
And the bus? Our Metro Transit keeps upping the price of bus fare...they hiked it by $1 per trip this week...and so how is that motivating folks to use the bus?

KIRO-TV news was interviewing a lady at a gas station this week and asked her if she was going to drive more, now that the gas prices have gone down. She said "Heck no."

That'll teach the oil people. I think.

Our gas prices are about 1.40$ per liter!!! And we're in the middle of the Middle East, for God's sake ! And every trip on the bus costs the same, that's the funny and the irritating part
Good things come in small packages...Unless it's YARN!

Here in the UK at the moment unleaded is 90.9pence a litre. if I remember right there is 4 litres to a gallan and the is at $1.50 approx. I think that works out to be around $5.50 a gallon. Still for the UK that is very good, and I have found that I don't mind using the car so much at the moment.

LOL You guys are so funny!

I'm just glad I'm not paying $4.18 or whatever it was before! I don't worry about the extra $0.05 / gallon I might save tomorrow (possibly throwing away as much as $0.60! )

(I paid $1.65 this morning.)
