    The figures for the UK are wrong. It's over $8.65 for unleaded.

    I filled up my diesel Volvo last week and it cost me $97.24. Lucky it wasn't this week-end (bank holiday and half term break for schools) it would have cost me $8.97 per gallon!!

    Holy Crap, I cry over a $35 fill up. If it was like that here I would start walking.

    I think we should tell Iraq and Kuwait thanks for the oil since we bailed your asses out.

    I knew someone once who had one of those big speed boats - That sucker had a 200 gallon gas tank.

    Can you imagine? In the UK that would cost him like $1800 to fill it up.

    Even over here, he'd walk away with a $800 bill, I bet - Gas costs a lot more at the marina. I wonder if he can afford to drive it away from the dock anymore?
