that's completely your fault if you run a vehicle with premium gas, we also have premium gas here in america.

but i see your point, i'm not just trying to be a dick this time.

up here, im paying 94.9 cents a litre, other parts of the country, over a buck a litre.

A canadian gallon is 4.5L, whereas the american gallon is roughly 3.8L.


Using the american measurement(just so its equalized)
that means im paying roughly 3.60$ PER GALLON

americans are paying roughly 52.6 cents per LITRE

come pay for gas up here, and bitch.

That's why we love FREE-MARKET economies and not Socialist ones

I paid Au$1.14/ litre today! Those damned Chinese are buying up all the fuel (and probably making a handsome profit for some Texans )

Jesus. Don't you Americans ever stop crying about everything which effects the Mighty Automobile.
In the UK, we're paying $6 a gallon.

Perhaps if you could persuade your government to fulful it's duty and ratify the Kyoto treaty, the whole world could get together and work towards bringing the need for gasoline down.
