Fuel for thought

Next time any of my foreign readers feel tempted to complain about the cost of fuel in your country, check out how much we have to pay in the UK compared to others...

This is what people are paying for petrol around the
world, right now.

United Kingdom £3.76/gallon

Italy £3.10/gallon
Japan £2.70/gallon

Australia £1.70/gallon
USA £1.35/gallon

In dollars, the US average is actually around $2.99-$3.03.

I know around here, where I live, that's the ballpark it's in. And considering how much the majority of Americans drive, it's damn hard putting up with such prices.

Try Canada. $1.29 /litre CDN. That's $4.90 for 3.8L (not sure, but I think that's UK gallon. Our dollar is at around .90 USD, so $4.41 USD per gallon.

I correct myself. After actually thinking, I checked out the net for the real numbers. UK gallon = 4.54L, At 129.9 /L, that's $5.89 CDN per UK gallon. According to a currency converter that means we pay 2.83 UK. For those in the US, that's $5.55 USD per gallon.
