$4 a gallon. Lordie, lordie. What shall we do? HEH! Here petrol/gasoline cost's more than twice that much! Eat that up yankees... (c; But it does not stop there. To even get a car in the first place you have to pay twice as much for the same make and model here. We earn less per capita and have a total tax pressure of 47. 8%. 4 dollars a gallon, 4 dollars a gallon. Arrrgh! Even milk costs' more here...
