in Ap Human Geography last year i learned that comparitivly gas costs us less than it did in the '60s...it was based on an average income of the people vs gas prices

its kinda hard to belive but i can see how it works like that

Petrol prices in Britian are off the charts, its incredible.

I managed to gas up last night (49L) cost me $57, I managed to get it at 1130pm last night when gas droped to $1.09 for 91. I was amazed to see 99.9c for 89 last night.

It'* up around 1.16 per liter so about 4,38$ per gallon for the cheap stuff up here. Considering I have to fill up on a daily basis, it is getting pretty bad.

My wife puts in $20 a visit. She figures the less weight will get a small increase in mileage.

Now the last fillup of my truck was $110 for 87 oct @3.04. You can see why I want a car
