well i'm assuming petrol and gas are the same thing, right? wait.. isn't gas the stuff you put in your tyres?

wait :mellow: scratch that

but... well prices for petrol are usually $0.90 - $1.00, but now it's almost reached $1.30! it's nuts

The other day I was filling up in town and gas was $2.42, after I got done and was heading out of the station they had changed it to $2.60. It's ridiculous.

It's always at least 10 cents more in my college town too (oh joy). I talked to a friend who is already up there and it's at $2.70 right now...makes me wish that I didn't have an SUV.

it's definitely price gouging and something should be done about it. <_< freakin' government.

It's about 2.60 here, but some places were as high as 2.75. And that went down 10 cents in a few hours. I went to work and the same places were 2.70, but the highest one {2.75 now} was 2.85. I go home a few hours later and it's 2.75. It's ridiculous and bulls***e. there's really no reason for it and the news is just egging people on when they say "this is the highest gas has ever been." Once it gets to $3/gallon, I'll be riding my bike the 15 miles to work. There is no way I'll be paying almost $40 to fill up a car that used to take less than 20.

In my neck of the woods, it's $1.05 per litre (up from just $0.95 a week earlier) - and I've been hearing that prices are slated to jump to as much as $1.20. :madfire:

Makes me glad I don't drive.

I have a senseoble car, but it still takes an insane amount of money to go the places that i need to go. It's a lot when you only make minumum wage. Doesnt the government realize that we have lives and have to go places! :cuss: Maybe we're secretly runing out of oil and this is the way that they keep from creating a mass panic! :LOL:

Did anyone else hear about the truckers in South Florida who staged a protest on the interstate in dispute of the high gas prices? I feel bad for them, many are going bankrupt, because they have to supply their own gasoline.

Gasoline and petrol are the same thing, but a gallon and a liter are not the same size - a liter is smaller than a gallon - so I am sure in Europe they are paying more money than here in the US.

:jawdrop: $2.94!!!!

It's about anywhere from $2.59-$2.69 around here. too expensive, I haven't been driving to school at all lately, and I haven't been back to work yet, so I'm broke. :( Can't afford to drive.
