    If you'd read and understood the original post, which included (For comparison and since the majority are in USA, can you convert to USD and to US gallons.) you would have known why I converted volume and didn't bother with currency.
    I'm very comfortable with both measurement systems thank you very much.

    BTW, your conversion constant is incorrect, it's actually 4.54609.

    Sometimes you have to highlight certain things or else people will only pick and choose what they want from your post and take it out of context!

    Someone mentioned earlier that people should take responsibility for their fuel usage and stop whining about fuel cost when they choose to live by the car. I chose to live close enough to where my daily responsibilities are, that I ride a bicycle every day the weather isn't plain awful, then I take a transit bus.

    I only need to put fuel in my truck about once a month (40 gallon fuel capacity) unless I go far out of town. I don't even look at fuel prices, I only look for no-ethanol signs. Same thing when riding my motorcycle. It is so nice to not be dependent on fuel for every day transportation. I've done the daily 100 mile round trip to work thing before, but never again unless I am being paid for fuel and time.

    I am sooo glad I drive a car that gets over 47 mpg US unless it´s really cold. My bandit 1250 gets exactly the same gas mileage with the modified mapping, so it doesn´t save anything, unfortunately.

    Im considering selling my POS always broken 125cc bike and getting a Yamaha YZF 125 R, that thing is a real motorcycle, not a scooter, it has 15hp and gets 117mpg.

    Electric cars and motorcycles can´t come soon enough!

    I work 70 miles from home.


    I like my job, but I am now looking for something closer.

    Filled up last week at about $4.00/gallon for unleaded. Filled up yesterday at Costco at $4.20/gallon for unleaded. That's quite a jump in one week.

    You all talk about today's cars being safe to drive but I think it's because they are so easy to drive. Anyone can drive a newer model car without having much skill or paying too much attention and most likely make it from point A to point B without incident. Soon cars will drive themselves.

    At stations just off the Interstate, the price is $3.99. Here, in town, less than a mile from the IH, the price is $3.84.

    It's about 5.50/US gallon in Vancouver right now, and a bit less in other parts of southern BC (extra tax in the city). Not surprisingly, the gas stations right across the border in WA are usually pretty busy. :)

    What I'd like to see is what the real cost of the gasoline only would be per country. Several years back I did some digging and found we actually paid more for the gasoline itself in the U.S. versus the U.K. by about $.30/gallon. The U.K. paid more actual money for gasoline PLUS TAX than we did though, to the tune of about $3/gallon making for the huge difference in total cost.

    I'd love to see what the difference is now for only the gasoline.

    Agree. It doesn't really matter. That said it's down to 4.09 today from 4.19 earlier this week (yes, regular). I do read the signs.

    So on a glance, looks like we are getting off really light both in gas cost and tax here in the U.S. Especially the tax aspect. No wonder our roads are crap Of course I don't want everything paved, but there could be a lot of improvement on the interstates and main highways.
