    *sarcasm*....gas went up again here in Central IL to $4.09...That's a 20 cent jump in less than a week! Ugh! I totally hate this! I know we're still cheaper than in other parts of the country but still....this really stinks! It's gonna cost like 80 bucks to fill up my tank! :( No fun!

    Just had to vent! :)

    Thanks for "listening"!

    It's $4.09 there?

    I'm only 20 miles from you, and it's still $3.98 here! At least it was this morning!

    I can't wait til I move to the city and ditch the car!

    it can cost around £60-70 to fill up your tank in parts of the UK (i think that's roughtly around $130) and our cars are generally smaller. It's been pricey over here for years

    Yeah, I remember learning that on this very forum, a couple of years ago when we (the US) were complaining about prices being around $2 a gallon.

    I remember saying that I couldn't imagine paying what you guys did for gasoline, but...well...it's becoming a reality now!

    I'm in the UK at the moment and have passed petrol stations selling at £1.13 a litre - that's the equivalent of $10.17 a gallon - sure you don't want to fill up where you are?

    Isn't that the dollar price per Imperial (4.55 litre) gallon, or have I got my sums wrong? A US (3.78 litre) gallon would be $8.41 at today's exchange rate.

    That almost seems reasonable - my car runs on diesel, which round here (in a rural area) is £1.29 a litre, or £5.87 an Imperial gallon, $9.61 a US gallon. Mind you, I get 55 miles per Imperial gallon.

    You spotted the flaw in my argument. Yes I did convert to Imperial, not the US version.
