$3.38 per gallon?So you'll have heard this all before, but...You saved an absolute fortune by not filling up in the UK. Prices are running at around $7.05 per (US) gallon.Last time gas cost as little as $3.38 over here was the mid-'80s!But then again we're a tiny wee island and there's really nowhere worth driving to anyway :-)
The mid-80s, if I recall correctly, was about the time when Americans were beginning to say "I'll never pay a dollar a gallon for gas!"And I dunno, I think there are a few places on that island I'd like to go, and I'd get frustrated and annoyed while waiting for the trains to arrive and get there.
Dave,I was camping up in the North Idaho woods this past weekend and when I built a fire, I used some newspaper from summer 2004. I like to see what the baseball standings were or whatever.The front page, top of the fold, had a big article on skyrocketing gas prices. They'd just hit $2.169.
And in France, it is 6,57 $ / gallon !!!I guess you still have some chance too have so cheap gas. It won't be long until you catch us up.
It's $3.22 today.And sure, agatez, it could hit $7 here at some point, but with all the taxes on European gas, it'll be $20 there.
