this is killin me

It now costs me close to $54cad to fill up a little four door car...

This totally sucks...Minimum you can get it for it town is 118.9 and in some places it is as high as 123.9...and for you americans don't forget that this is a per litre price not per gallon...

I know that there are countries that are paying more for gas...but damn...i'm gonna have to take out a loan everytime i need to fill up...

K i've had my rant...

i feel a bit better...

Yes, I escaped just in time. When I pulled into PG last month the price was $.99/L. By the time I filled up to leave only four days later, it had climbed to $1.11. A few more days and I might have had to camp for the winter.

Well, I feel your pain. Here in Germany we are paying €1,52 per liter at the pump! That is a hard $7.60 a Gallon! My countreymen back home have no idea how cheap their gas prices are. Try burning up $40 per week with just driving to work and back, and the trip is only 8 miles! The prices are killing us all! And the only people profiting, are the Oil companies. They made alone last year $15,000,000 in winnings, and that is just from Shell! We are getting screwed, and without the Vaseline, it fuckin hurts man!

Whatever happened to alternatives to gasoline? Scientists etc. have been working on that long enough.
I believe that in Brazil most cars don't run on gas - I think they run on alcohol or fuel made from corn......and Brazil is a huge country, so that's a lot of people not using gasoline.

I am no longer using my big “Man’s Van” or rolling bedroom as my friends like to call it as it gets 15MPG at best on the road. You are correct on other countries paying much more for gasoline as my older son just returned from a month in Europe and told me they were paying a little over $8.00US a gallon for gasoline when they converted the liters to gallons and did the money exchange. He said the highest prices he had were in Switzerland.

I always enjoy going out in my sailboat at the yacht club and seeing all the power boats sitting at dock. We have to power out to the bay entrance but my small diesel has never used more than 4 US gallons a season and we can go all day or weekend for almost free. My electricity is supplied by a large solar panel that will keep the batteries up and also let us run a small thermo electric cooler, the marine VHF and the GPS.

Playful, you should try this,,, I pull up and get 150 gallons of diesel at about 3 dollars depending on the state i'm in. That is for the tractor, then i pull forward 20 feet and put in 40 more gallons to keep the ice cream cold. And that happens almost every day. But, hey, I'll try and pass that cost on to ya ifn i can!!!!

I would love to trade in my very large family ride on one of them new half gas half electric cars. When I pull up to the pump in Texas (home of all the f%&king oil wells and yes our great President) it cost me a whopping $120.00 and that last 4-5 days at most driving back and forth to my job from hell. (29miles one way) I would work here at home but no jobs. Get that I work to put gas in my car so I can go to work and put gas in my car. Where does this end. We need a national dont drive for one weekend.
