Gas prices

Gas prices here have hit over $2.50 per gallon. Horrendous.

Or is it?

When Justin called from England he told me that the nearest station was charging 97 pence per litre. Okay, two quick conversions:

1 British pound is currently 1.8022 US dollars. So that's $1.75 per litre.

1 US gallon is 3.785 litres. So that's $6.62 per gallon.

I don't know whether to laugh at Americans who gripe about their prices, or offer a "pthbthbt" to the Brits who are paying close to three times as much.

Nah, maybe I'll do both.
