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.
america thinks its got it bad?ReplyDelete
is america is $3 per gallon for petrol
theres 3.8L per gallon
in uk its £1.09 per L
that means its 0.78$ per L in america
under current exchange rate that works out as
0.39p per L in america
£1.09 per L in uk
thats like almost 1/3 the price of what we pay!
$8.65 per gallon in uk
$3 per gallon in us
Just a novel observation from a 'crying' American. Perhaps you should stop interpretting what our media says is a 'dire emergency' etc. for what the people are actually feeling. Last summer the American press was causing a panic about sharka attacks and before that child abductions. Guess what? No Americans ran out and got shark-bite insurance or locked their children away underground. Moral of the story: Don't claim a society is in any state of panic or 'crying' because you read about it in the media (especially, ironically enough, the U.S media)ReplyDelete
