        Hiya Cuties,

        WIth gas prices estimated to reach an all time high of $5 a gallon this summer, had many people down right ticked off!

        But things have turned for the better and gas prices are projected to come down. But why suddenly has it dropped. Do you feel that with the current situation of Bin Laden it will have an effect on our economy?

        Only time will tell. $5 a gallon is unbelievable. Let's hope that doesn't happen.

        It's just gone down one whole pence per litre here to £1.359 per litre which makes it £6.20 per gallon equivalent to $10.10 per gallon.

        I just read an article about the oil companies making BILLION dollar profits and the still recieve giant tax breaks.  Big business runs the show.  Redamndiculous.  I wouldn't go anywhere except my Kelsea loves to ride in the car.  It is the only things she asks to do (by ask I mean she takes my hand and leads me to the door).  How can I refuse?  Gas is 3.95 here and 3.65 in the next town. Go figure.

        Awww  - that's so sweet wmmeden. 

        Looks like we are paying 3 x what you are paying.  Most of the cost goes to the Govt here - they are very greedy.

        Yes we do but not as far as you can cos the country is so much smaller.  Even so, we are still being ripped off by the Govt. here. What used to cost me £10 (12.71 litres) now costs me £17.80 or thereabouts.  It sucks big time.  Public transport is a joke so it's the car or don't go.

        Omg $10 a gallon for gas?? I about gasped. Ya know i really didn't realize the conversion rates until i booked my trip to UK. It was a nightmare. It will eat up an American bank account in no time. The USD is only worth .65 per dollar against the pound.

        The USD is so weak right now. Makes it very rough travel Europe with the conversion rates.

        Boy Oh Boy,  How things have changed!  I can.t believe todays low gas prices.
          I remember when gas was at it's high the price of bread , milk and everything else went up due to transportation costs.  Now that the  price is down, do ya think they're going to bring their prices back down? NOPE, no way!

        Most governments, especially in Europe, put big taxes on gas because it's a steady and certain revenue stream for the public budget.

        In Romania we can get gas for 4.5 RON per litre at the moment (the prices have gone down significantly lately), that's about 1.08 US dollars. So that would be around 4.5 dollars per gallon, but you also have to consider that the average wage here is around 430 dollars per month.

        The cheapest gas in the world is in Venezuela, where the government subsidize the gas. So you pay only $0.02 pr litre. Read it on a global price-list from 18.01.16. The gas in USA is till cheap too, only $0.58 pr litre. Lucky americans

        I actually saw a station selling gas for $1.44 a gallon. That is the cheapest I have seen it in years. We are very lucky compared to some of the other countries.
        happy motoring!
