Petrol prices biting in the US.

The price of petrol is rising almost day by day here in the US. Its now a little over 3 dollars a gallon. Its hitting the motorists hard and they don't like it.
There are still loads of massive cars, but smaller more economic cars are definately being considered. When we came here 7 or 8 years ago, the price for a gallon had just gone over the dollar mark.

I was there about 4 or 5 years ago and it wasn't much more then, and the Americans were complaining about it then!

It may be my TV perception but Americans do drive big cars.

Its a shame petrol proces are going up, I wonder if we will see petrol strikes again sometime soon?
Lloyd

Diesel here is nearly 1.10 a litre, so probably, Dunky.

Not even for a 40 saving per tank. Get the 20l tins from cash and carry.

correct you are supposed to let the tax man know, but I'd say he's got enough on his plate. ::  ::  ::

Very considerate of you. :-)

Mind you,just tell them that you sent in a declaration with a cheque,it must have got lost in the post.

Can't see them arguing with you at the moment.

Or tell them you sent a disc with details of every journey you made...

No joke luvvies,Inland Revenue have 'lost 'almost everything we've ever sent them and then they have the cheek to get shirty about it!
When you eventually prove them wrong do you get an apology? - do you heck!   :q11:
