Send us some over then because our's is getting ridiculous as we're now upto 5.20 so around $8.10!! How can that possibly be justified and allowed to happen I'll never know :mad1:

Comparing prices don't mean much because yous guys don't drive as far as Americans. More info is needed  ;-()

That would certainly be an interesting set of statistics to look at, but 1 thing is guaranteed you had better drive a loooooooooooong way to match our price :Confused:

I don't know how much you drive. A 40 mile round-trip commute plus 15 miles on the weekend is 215 miles per week. At $3.42, that's $735 per week.

There's no way you drive 85 miles per week!   :tease:

Sorry to say it Bab but I drive well over 85 miles per week. Its 30 miles per working day so thats 150 miles, then when I go out either on a week night or with friends you can add another 40-50 miles to that so we're talking 200 miles per week I drive :Confused:

I'm paying about $3.30/gallon for 89 octane at Chevron. That's up about 30-35 cents since a year ago.
Then we will fight in the shade.

Doesn't matter. I did the calculation wrong, anyway. I did $ per mile, not $ per gallon  :rofl_2:

Yeah I figured you had screwed your calculations up claiming you pay that much per month :)~

So to conclude Chris clearly has to waste more of his money on damn petrol/fuel than Babble :)~ :Confused:

Wow....and I was complaining about me paying $3.65 the other day.  Now that same station has upped their price to $3.79 (in 2 days).
