You're getting gouged :p

Gas prices are SUPPOSED to be going back down.

It's 2.79 or lower here.

Oh, and if you own two SUVs and a BMW, you shouldn't be bitching about costs of things.

Why not? The BMW is 2002, the other 2 vehicles are much older than that.

In Britain petrol companies like BP make less than 1p on fuel and get their profit only on snack sales. Despite this fuel is like 95p/litre which I think is $7-8/gallon

It is all about conserving. I truly believe that if people would cut back on their driving just a little bit it would be reflected at the pump.

Well, can I turn this to a political thread? :lol: ... and say, you can thank to some of the World leaders who made wars and didn't think one day the American people won't have another choice but to pay high prices.

Exactly, and then the World Hustlers try to buy us off with a $100.00 check, while all the while hiding legislation in the very same bill to further destroy our enviorment. Time for alternative fuel sources. :tape:

I just hope USA and EU will put enough money in research to find some new ways of getting the energy we need with our current way of living. For the moment, people can invest in something with a hybrid engine :shrug:

God how I would love to buy petrol for $3.15 a gallon! :D I filled my tank up last week and it cost me nearly £25 to get about 25 litres, which I believe if I get all the converting right works out in $ and gallons as being $45 for 6 gallons :eek: Which means here in the UK, well at least in the South East anyway, we pay about $7.5 per gallon :fiery: I hate the tax on petrol here! :fiery:

Indeed. Luckily I don't have to fill my car up too often as I don't use my car that much but my Dad, who has to drive to and from work everyday, spends about a £100 a week, every week, just on petrol. That's like almost $200 a week! :eek:

I want to get me one of those electric-hybrid things, I'm sure that's got to be cheaper to run :cool:

Thats what the hybrid companies are saying, thing is you got to sacrifice perfomance for economy, may be the only choice left.

:o @ myself but I have no idea how much do we pay here. I know that in Luxembourg we pay less than France, Germany and Belgium as everyone from the border regions of those ****ries come here to fill the tank. But tomorrow I'll check :D

Lexus GS 450h (http://www.hybridcars.com/lexus-gs450h.html)

The Lexus GS 450h will use a 3.5-liter V6 engine and a high-output electric motor--all driving the rear wheels--to pack horsepower at the level of a V8 engine. Lexus won't commit to a definite number of horsepower for the 450h, which will launch in Spring 2006. "We're seeing substantially more than 300 horsepower," said Hanson. "Substantially is a good word. It's way above." Zero-to-60 acceleration will be below six seconds. The Lexus 450h will be the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its class. Its fuel economy will be in the high-20s, similar to the average 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder compact sedan.

We are at $3.05 per gallon here and that's hurting my pocket. I fill up two cars every week and it's costing. A $100 rebate will do nothing to solve the problem. I'm now a bit grateful though after reading how much the prices are in other countries. $7 a gallon would have me riding a scooter everyday.:mad:

Just got back from filling up one of the cars, in the time it took me to post this thread the gas went up to $3.20, this is getting really stupid. I feel for you guys in Europe, something has to be done.

I won't be suprised if it goes up to $3.50 by next week. Something has to be done quick otherwise I'm predicting it will go past the $4 mark if the trend keeps up.

no need to feel for us. we don't drive cars as much as you do. we use public transport much more. hell, i don't even own a car.

The government really needs to increase taxes on gas rather than decrease them, that way less people will buy as much and the actual cost for the fuel will go down. :p

The US is much more rural, where many of us live, public transit isn't practical.

In Canada depending upon the where you live the prices vary from 90cents/litre to $1.30/litre. I'm too lazy to convert to gallons :p but it is definately more expensive than in the US

You have it cheap because of all the stolen oil, UK helps in oil robberies too but doesn't get enough of the loot :p Frankly the Brits should demand their share of loot as well.

Yes, they do. But many of these "cities" are very small. And the US has a lot more rural population than more European countries.

As far as a stigma for people who use buses, I don't think that's an issue really in places like NYC. Sure there may be some stigma, but that doesn't explain the lack of public transit.

If not, stop bitching. $3.15 For a gallon is laughably cheap compared to a lot of countries.
