Hey! Gas isn't Cheap!

So how's gas prices where you're at? (Wait, our European readers, put your hands down, we know it's always been expensive for you. I'm sorry.) Us Yanks simply aren't used to paying more than $2 a gallon. It's now hovering around $3.15 here in Boston, and for the first time this week, I've asked myself, "do I really need to drive there?" Yup, we've been spoiled.

What to do? What to do?

The great James Lileks has some ideas.

    Hey ya'll,

    Gas here is $1.30 per litre, yup, that's per litre (sounds like leeter).

    Thats up from $.90 per litre in early August.

    Just an update:

    it takes 3.78 litre (AU) to make 1 gallon (US).

    $1.30 (soon to be 1.50) x 3.78 = $4.91/gallon!
    (that is sans currency conversion)

    OUCH! We are glad it is sunny 10 months of the year, time to cycle!

    Love the Ozzies!
