I was there with wifey and family over Easter weekend from Thursday night to yesterday night!  You really need to read the tennis journals more often!   ;-()

Sounds excellent Buckeye, nice break to have over Easter, so sure you enjoyed it  :) I read the Tennis journals section briefly but haven't read it much over the last few days, maybe I need to go and do some catching up  ;-() What area of Tennesse did you stay in? or are you going to make me go and look through the journals right now  :))

From that link Dmas put on here about fuel prices all across America, it seems that you're at the lowest end in terms of prices- that looks very good compared to a lot of the States, and a lot healthier still compared to our prices.

Today, the Euro peaked to an all-time high > 1.50 against the USD. Expect gas prices to follow suit.

Hoooly crap criers! The Euro is now 1.54 against the USD.

 1.5577 !!!!  :eek:

Whilst riding the train this am, I happened to catch the gas price in downtown Chicago just outside the Loop.

$3.55

Go GREEN!!!!

Euro 1.58
gas  3.65

On average its around 107p per litre right now over here! I so wish that was per gallon. So we worked it out that it was over twice as expensive as what it is in America :ranting:

I know- apparently the prices are really high right now in terms of what they;ve previously been but if they spent 6 months over here they'd be loving those petrol stations in America  :) I'd so love to be paying their prices instead of the rip off I have to pay.

That's right. It's all a matter of perspective. It wasn't long ago we were paying about $1.70/gal. The complaints aren't just limited to how much it costs to fill up our cars. It goes much further than that. It's driving the cost of everything up. But I'm sure it's doing the same over there too.

Yeah its really a case of what you're used to and what you've expereinced in the past. That $1.70 a gallon is unbelievable and such a low price and compare that to what you guys are having to pay now then no wonder its really annoying for you. Everything over here is shooting up dramatically. Think of this our electic bill went up by £100, so about $200 in just 12 months- I mean thats insane and just shouldn't be allowed!

I filled up for the first time ever today, £1.09 per litre. Not sure what that equates to in $/gallon.

Like I said, it's all a matter of perspective. I don't know what prices are in Malaysia, but I'm sure they are complaining about what they are paying as compared to what they were paying 3 years ago too.

I would assume the car you drive and its miles/gallon capability is more important than the price of petrol for keeping prices down. A small Renault Clio will go above 50 miles/gallon but a lot of much heavier (and more expensive) cars can be below 20.

That's true. My Camry gets around 30 mpg, but most trucks and SUVs get more like 15 mpg. Some SUVs get as much as 20 mpg. Hybrid cars and trucks get better milage. Chevy as advertizing a large SUV which gets over 30 mpg, but I would bet on it doing that.
Another distinction is city driving vs highway driving. If you are in the city, starting and stopping, you will get much worse mileage than when you are on the highway and driving at a constant speed.
