Re: What are your gas prices?

Filled it up yesterday, $8.07USD. Luckily i gotten myself a daily driver instead of the merc that averages on maybe 35-40mpg depending how heavy my right foot is.

I love the merc, but filling it up feels like a punch to the gut.

Re: What are your gas prices?

It's around £1.40/l here.

I'm hoping I can get a new car in the next year. Looking at A-rated diesels it appears I can get a car with combined fuel economy of 74mpg for under £20K with no road tax going forward. Shame there's no cabriolets that meet that, but at least I can get a car with a sunroof.

Re: What are your gas prices?

In the UK it might be a case of us all tankng up before the strike start. Even using the Army to deliver fuel it is likely fuel supplies will be limited, should the strike last long.

I know Scotland's just broken its March temperature record, but I still think you're being a wee bit overoptimistic here...

Re: What are your gas prices?

When I left for work this morning it was $1.20.9 a liter
just passed a gas station and it had jumped to $1.39.9 a liter, nothing like taking it up the ass and not being kissed by big oil, the fucking thief's.

Check out the Caribbean Gay Cruise Thread, there's plenty of talk about taking it in the ass in that thread.

Re: What are your gas prices?

Closing in on $4.00 a gallon for regular unleaded. I imagine by the time summer hits it's going to be well above that and climbing.

$3.96 in most of St. Louis and falling. In a few remote areas of town, it's as low as $3.77 though.

I've had the sunroof open all week!

I like the Megane cabriolet, but they don't have the ECO diesel as an option for whatever reason that you can get in the saloon so the best you can do is a C-rating which costs £100/yr. road tax. I'd like it, but not that much.

Re: What are your gas prices?

Actually had to use the AC the last few days, with the unseasonably warm temps we are basking in the UK.

I'll make a long range weather forcast for the UK a warm dry summer except for a fortnight in when we'll have heavy showers
