Could you please come live next door to me so my gas prices can go down too? Otherwise it ain't gonna happen. $3.48 here right now. For some reason gas prices go down slower here than other places, though they usually eventually get close to the lowest in the country.

Anyone who is interested can find gas prices nationwide here: http://www.gasbuddy.com/gb_gastemperaturemap.aspx

...So what exactly is the issue? The most expensive type of gas where I live is almost €2 per liter (about 9.61 USD per gallon), whereas the cheapest is over €1.4/L (about 6.73 USD per gallon). The price you describe is the price of the cheapest automobile fuel we have - natural gas.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Nobody says “There are many things that we thought were natural processes, but now know that a god did them.”

Our usual excuse is that we drive a lot more in this country, because it is so much bigger. In actual fact, we just think we're special and shouldn't have to pay too much for the stuff. There are still too many of us who remember how cheap gasoline used to be, and we're still spoiled.

Oh you Europeans!  Frack, Jack.   May kill us over the short long run, but saving money when driving is more important than life itself.  :o

  It takes the edge off the gas bill when you're cruising for hookers.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

I remember when I had my first car in 1997, it was 98¢ a gallon at the Racetrac. It was $1.01 everywhere else. My mom told me she could remember when it was about 50¢ and my grandfather said, "I remember when you could get it from a heifer's tits!". lol!
