    Come to think of it, what is everybody paying for gas?
    We buy by the litre. Today it was .85 Can.
    There is 3.79 litres in a U.S. Gallon and the Canadian dollar is worth .83 cents American.
    So in U.S. terms its $2.67/Gallon US.

    And you?

    Too mukin' futch. Been a little over $2/gal for too long. Maybe we should have seized Sadaams oil wells with the Kurds help. Let the Iraq gov't earn their way back into the oil market.

    Just paid $2.17 for regular, cleaned my own windows and checked my own fluids, that would be the vans fluids not my personal fluids.

    Just weent to $1.93 Thursday. Probably will be over $2.00 by next weekend with holidays coming up. Predictions are that it'll hover around 3 bucks by summer.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    $.32 cents per gallon for premium around here, and they pump your gas, check your oil, clean the windshield and whiskkbroom out your car while you are visiting the head. Free road maps if you need one, too.

    "Around here" is 1972. I live in the Twilight Zone.

    Ever hear of gasohol? The alcohol in it can come from a plant called the Jerusalem artichoke. You plant a pound of that seed and, properly farmed, yields 8 times its weight in the seed where the good stuff comes from. Not a bad investment.
