    Default yikes!!!!! gas prices

    gas went up to $1.38 litre. that works out to $6.21 a gallon
    or $5.24 U S gallon. our gallon is .8 litres larger. one station puts up their price and all others follow suit. no collusion there. doh.

    Ouch, it hurts a little more when you remember the price of gas pre 1973. At least we can enjoy our miles of driving.

    If I am right in calculation, 1 litre is 1,72 euro here in the village, which is 2.60 Canadian Dollars ! Double ! The goverment is wondering why it's so quiet at the gas stations here around the border with Germany ( Germany 1,45 euro a litre ! )

I mean walking on the moon was pretty good, but how many times you’d gonna walk on the moon? But here was an affordable sports car that had real performance and looked like it cost a lot more than it did.

    We are paying around $2.15 litre for 95 octane here in NZ. 95 is our lowest priced fuel, which i have been running in my 72 for the last 16 years.
    It appears our fuel is equivalent to around $2.28/Litre Canadian.

    I heard on the news today that Summer gas is more expensive than Winter gas, thus the recent price increase. About $1.45 per Litre here on the Wet Coast of Canada. That translates to $5.40 CDN per US Gallon!
