    It's been said befor but many of you across the pond have no idea what $5+ a gallon can do to our economy here. It's not about us whining about it because we want to go the mall or the beach. When fuel goes up here, everything goes up with it including rent.

    Same here really.
    For the last 6 weeks I've been putting 200l of diesel in to the excavator , 5 times a week.
    At $1.56/litre I'm gald I'm not paying that bill.
    Unfortunally diesel is more expensive here than petrol.

    A gallon (im going to make a gallon a full 4 liter) here in brazil is around 6-7 US dollars. (2,50 brazilian reais each liter) And have 20% of alcohol inside so its not really pure gas.

    Gallon of gas where I live is between $4.10-$4.30 and that's just for 87 octane. I refuse to put anything less than 91 octane in my car cause of the type of engine it has so it's like $4.70 a gallon of something like that. I think I read somewhere California has the highest average gas prices in the US, but I'm not really sure.

    I usually swap car's with my mother anytime I go anywhere further than downtown cause she drives a hybrid. My car gets like 18 miles per gallon with the way I usually drive it, 'bout 21 mpg if I'm on the freeway. The hybrid gets like 40mpg or something like that (it's an SUV).

    When I was a kid in L.A., my parents used to fill up the 20 gallon tank in the station wagon for $6. And they would clean the windows and check the oil for free.

    Well that might be true but the average Indian does get affected by the rise in fuel prices which I am sure a point you understand.

    In Delhi which has the lowest fuel prices in the four metros I end up paying almost Rs.70/ ltr of petrol (something like 1.4 USD).

    Also the factor that the Indian Government subsidizes the prices of Diesel (Rs. 40/ltr), Kerosene (at a ridiculous Rs.10/ltr) and LPG Gas(cooking). Some of the burden of this subsidy is passed on to the Petrol users and thus Petrol is always the most expensive fuel.
