    Petrol price seems to be be going through the roof. What are you paying? For comparison and since the majority are in USA, can you convert to USD and to US gallons. 1 litre = 0.264 US gallons or 1 gallon = 3.785 litres. Ai the americans and their funny units. They dont even measure in 10s so 1/10 of a gallon is a milligallon, or 10 gallons a kilogallon....LOL

    South Africa R11.49 /litre for 95 unleaded = $5.65/gallon

    In comparison, a bottle of good scotch whiskey

    R200 for 750 ml = $131/gallon

    We're fluctuating between $3.80 and $4.00 per gallon here in S.E. Pennsylvania.

    And I'd like to go on record as saying I don't think we're paying nearly enough per gallon.:eek1 (W.T.F.!? you ask.)

    I'd like to see gas prices climb to almost $6.00 per gallon around here to slow down some of these raging lunatics that like to blow down Country roads at 80+ mph in their vehicles (mostly SUV and Pick-ups) who show a complete disregard for the safety of others when they have to straddle the center of the road to keep from drifting off it around blind turns. (and playing the zig-zag game down the highways when I'm already doing 70 in the slow lane and other traffic is doing 80 in the passing lane):deal
    If they can afford to drive that way = they can afford to pay higher gas prices. (I get 80+ mpg so I don't give a shit!)
    I'm hoping higher gas prices will slow down some of these assholes.:kboom


    ...will it affect others who don't deserve the higher gas prices?
    Sure will but, it might also help save their life.
    I.M.H.O. if you can't afford it, you shouldn't have bought it. (and we all knew full well that higher gas prices are/were on their way):tough

    The only people I feel sorry for are the small business owners who have to fuel the vehicles used for their business.

    I'm also hoping higher fuel prices will bring us a better variety of vehicles like the rest of the world has. (that can still haul things but get better mpg.)

    But higher fuel prices will mean higher food price (which can be partially mitigated by agricultural exemptions on fuel taxes), and all other commodities due to rising transport costs.

    Maybe those that can afford big SUVs and drive them at 80+ can afford higher fuel so it wont stop them? Just a thought

    In the mean time it kills m ass. No body reimburses me for my fuel bills, at $3.90 a gal my monthly fuel average runs about $400 a month, and that is with a 24 mpg Suzuki
