Keyword in that article being could. Gas could reach $100 a gallon next week too. Rubbish news that no one should pay attention to. Having said that, I don't think gas prices are going down anytime soon.

They've said shit like that every summer since gas prices got out of hand.

It never gets as high as they claim it will.

Move over here and you'll have a right to bitch about petrol prices. I paid £1.37 per litre today, which in 'Mukan works out at £8.60 per US gallon. Boo hoo your cheap petrol might get slightly less cheap.

Except it is and we do. Our public transit over here is pretty crappy unless you live somewhere like NYC or San Fransisco. I know people that make a 72 mile/115 km drive to work every morning.

At my local asda it was like £1.29 a litre today

EDIT: I can't think of a single time when US Petrol prices has gotten close to UK prices...

I have a feeling it'll be like this for the U.K. Ugers.

If gas is more expensive in the U.S.: "Wow, don't know how you americans were so retarded in letting that happen..."

If gas is less expensive in the U.S.: "You guys are bitching about nothing. We're the ones who have it rough."

Yeah

My fuel light had been on for quite a while, had I kept going 2 miles up the road I would have got to the petrol station I was actually aiming for, but I wouldn't have made it so had to stop at the stupid expensive Esso. After filling up I went past the Sainsburys one I had intended to use and it was like £1.31, and I paid £1.37, I was so annoyed

Isn't that because there's a tax or something on it?

It probably won't reach 6 bucks here, although the highest I've heard was $3.95 and the lowest I've seen is $3.71

---Would've been a correct conversion if there were 6.3 litres per gallon
Alas, there are only about 3.80 xD. Still a lot but not the exaggerated amount
Posted though xD

I wonder how expensive gas will have to be to get these ugly Hummers off the road. I remember back the last time it went up over $4.00, you still saw a ton of people driving Hummers and Escalades and shit.

It doesn't hurt me much, because my S10 gets 24 MPG... on the highway at least.

I'm no environmentalist, but if there's one thing I hate, it's big ugly SUVs.

To be fair, it's kind of true. The UK is about 243,000 square kilometers. The contiguous US is well over 7.5 million square kilometers. It's about thirty times the size if my math is right. And that's not including Alaska, which is about another 1.7 million kilometers.

Except that we've become so used to bottom-dollar gas that our economy is nearly driven by the fact that we coud afford to have it like a baby drinking teat-milk.

If my calculations are correct, 6 dollars a gallon = 0.96 pounds per litre

LET THE FLAME WARS BEGIN



Did this take into account both the change in volume AND the differences in the worth of both currencies, or JUST the change in volume?

6 DOLLARS a GALLON = 0.96 POUNDS per LITRE

Let's break it down


1 gallon = roughly 3.785 litres
6 dollars a gallon = 6/3.785 = 1.585 dollars a litre
1.585 dollars by the current exchange rate according to XE.com is 0.96 great british pounds

I paid £1.41 for a litre of petrol today. I would kill to get petrol for $6 a gallon.

no, that would be £5.19 per US gallon, but that still comes out to $10.01 per gallon.

EDIT: my bad, the conversation rate on the app on my phone was way the **** off, it's $8.59 US per gallon, which is what you said, though you still said £8.60 per US gallon.

Just checkin, people tend to give this stat without checking exchange rates.

Also, this is perhaps a controversial opinion, but the "Americans need to drive longer distances" doesn't really apply considering how much they love Hummers and SUV's. Maybe if they got over their hatred of fuel-efficient vehicles, then the argument of economically viable driving would become valid.

I've never been to the US, so my opinion is ignorant and full of shit, but it seems to me like too many people regard small cars as being "for pussies". They'd rather drive MANLY cars that run out of fuel before they leave the gas station.
#31
Oh I think my mate worked it out sometime that the UKers are getting charged like 180% tax on top of standard petrol prices. I can't remember where he got that from though.

Somewhat true, but not the majority of people by a long shot. The longer distance thing isn't as relevant as the fact that due to our fear and hatred of taxes, our public transportation systems suck. Buses barely go where you need them to, no monorails or w/e you want to call them, and no public trains. Big cities are the only places where you can get around without a car.


But with that I'm out. I have to go make a 20 mile drive to get to band practice

It's not our fault that any car worth being seen in gets less than 15 MPG.

You don't see as many Hummers around here as you think. A lot of people drive trucks. But it often has to do with the fact that they need to haul things for their jobs.

My truck also runs on subsidized propane, it stays below $3 a gallon no matter what, right now it's about $2.40, gas here is about $5 for regular. Weird they let us put it in our cars as it's subsidized for cooking mostly I imagine.
It's kind of a guzzler, 3L V6 Toyota 4x4. It's all dirt and crap roads here though so cars kinda suck.

I definitely see enough of the H2s and H3s. You don't see too many of the original Hummer, though. Personally, as a big old school muscle car guy, if I'm gonna drive something that gets terrible gas mileage, I want it to have some style.
