1.32 €uros / litre

So that would be about 1.95$ / quarter of a gallon

Cheap...

I won't complain about gas prices here then.. What is the average salary where you live if you guys are paying 2 dollars for a 1/4 of a  gallon..

I don't remember the per gallon price, but it was more than $50 to fill my tank last week.  That was the second time that has ever happened.  :'(

In SF, it's been $3.50+ for Premium for about 2-3 weeks now. In my BMW, with an 18.5 gallon tank, it's about $70 to fill when pretty close to empty. :o
But hey, the nations average, according to many reports on the radio, says we're in the norm. BS!!!! >:(

Euro, right now is around 1.35 US$ (?)

Avg. salary is about 2,500€/month. From that you pay around 25% tax and additional 5% of health/welfare/pension fees that are not optional.

Cost of living is around the same than is the States, on the average I guess? Food is way more expensive, not even mentioning the supplements... 4.5lbs jug of ON whey is around 60€...

And the weather sucks

Damn - I love my country!

£1 per litre. (I'm in the UK)

Or $2 per litre.

Or $9.20 per gallon.

It's all the same.

From a UK forum:

--------

British Gas made a profit of £1.3bn between January & June
BP announced profits of £6.95 billion between April and June alone
Shell has profited by £9.4bn in a year

The MEN at the top:

John Pettigrew, boss of National Grid received £6.5m bonus on top of his salary
Chris O’Shea, chief executive of British Gas owner Centrica was paid almost £2m last year in salary and benefits
Centrica's non-executive directors were paid almost £1m
Scottish Power's CEO Keith Anderson is on £1.15m.
E.On boss Michael Lewis is on £1m
EDF's Simone Rossi is also on £1m
And their top execs enjoyed a share of £4.65m
Peter Simpson of Anglian Water earned a £1.3m pay package
Welsh Water bosses awarded themselves bonuses of over £930,000
Severn Trent bosses awarded themselves bonuses of £5.56m

* Thames Water's Sarah Bentley, received a £727,000 bonus on top of her £2m annual salary

Meanwhile there are...


People who haven't had breakfast and/or lunch TODAY, because they can't afford it.
People using FoodBanks because food is becoming more of a luxury than a necessity.
Children celebrating a birthday without presents.
Parents worrying about new school uniforms - and some schools enforcing rules which are not cost-effective.
People who can't get to work because they can't afford to put petrol in their cars/pay for public transport anymore.
People who are working so much they're making themselves ill, and they STILL CAN'T AFFORD to pay their bills.
People who have been given fines by these same energy/water companies because they couldn't afford to pay their bills in the first place - increasing their debt.
Customers being told to do STAR JUMPS TO KEEP WARM for crying out loud!
Hose pipe bans when gallons of water leak away everyday.
Elderly people NOT DRINKING because they're worried about running out of water!!![/li][/list]

All this and energy prices are set to rise up to 75% in October...

THIS IS MADNESS!.. I'm all for supporting profits ..I'm not for supporting greed at the cost of lives of others..

Something needs to change..
