So everyone in the US press is making a big deal about the average price of gas in the USA crossing the $3 per gallon threshold.
You guys have no idea about the real price of gas that's why you are still cruising around in hulk-mobiles and wonder why the rest of the worlds are driving around in gas efficient sedans.
For simple maths here's some figures
1Gallon = 3.8 liters
$US1 = $A 0.90
So the comparative rate in Australia that the USA currently buys their gas at is 0.87c per liter.
Lol - the actual current average for petrol in Sydney is $1.30 per liter. if you were to convert that to USA dollars and gallons it would be equal to $US3.95 a gallon (and this number is being helped substantially by the much higher than normal $A it should be closer to $4.15+ per gallon if the Aussie dollar is taken at a 12month rate).
Like I said....you guys have it pretty good stop your crying.
