Here in the US we are getting slammed with the highest prices for gasoline that we have ever seen. Worse yet, these prices affect absolutely everything. Food, water, clothing you name it, if it needs to travel to get to where you are… the price is going up.
We won’t talk about turning food into fuel… Whose idea was that? It sure sounded good but if you were a farmer would you grow food for people or fuel? The answer lies in how much money you will make from the crop. Are we going from Oil Barons to Corn Barons?
Just back from a visit to the US where gas is sooooo cheap driving is enjoyable. Ironically, Americans think their gas is too expensive: fill up in the US is about $35 - here in the UK we pay about £50 (about $80) to fill the tank.
In Brazil gasoline is about 1.1US$ a litre, in some states, like Sao Paulo, the one I live, we use etanol instead, its about half the price, but the car uses 30% more litres than gasoline, so its still worth it.
Hello, here in Uruguay (South America) it costs about $4.34 per gallon. It´s a bit cheaper than two months ago but it´s still too expensive for our economy. To have a big picture evaluation you should consider that our promedial salary it´s about $400 a month.
Price here in Southwest Missouri, USA has increased to 3.85 in honor of the 4th of July weekend. Gas companies love holidays. 3.85 does not sound as high as the others, but SW Mo is a very poor area of the USA.
Everything is relative when it comes to whether one considers a price as being high. I remember thinking (not all that long ago) that $2.65 was outrageous! Now it looks like an excellent price. Looking at $8.70 a gallon... well that makes me thankful I am only paying $4.15!!
