I'm really curious. Today I went out for fuel and had to pay $4.09 a gallon!! :/
sort by best latest
Forgive my ignorance... Are those euros? if so that is very expensive!
Thanks for answering :) And that's insane!! My next question should be, Is it illegal to use a horse as my primary mode of transportation in the US?
It would depend where you are. Some cities do have a law against it on the main roads...
In the UK it's currently around $2.20 per litre, that is around $8 for a US gallon, $9 + for a British gallon.
Maybe you're lucky, maybe you're not. It's difficult to say what the real cost of fuel is in any country because you have to strip away all the taxes first. The U.S. oil industry is heavily subsidized, too, so you're paying for that, too.
Thanks for the detailed response, Casimiro! I guess I should just suck it up. I've heard that gas is generally more expensive elsewhere, but good lord, even at $4/gallon I'm breaking my bank!!
Look into making your own bio-diesel! Can be done for about $1-$2/gallon once you get the hang of it. Or perhaps do a propane conversion on your gas engine. I don't know if that's cost-effective in the U.S. but here propane is about 60% of gasoline
Bio-diesel is a great idea! Diesel fuel is even more expensive than gasoline here in PA, and I think in the rest of the country too.
