There's a scene in the first Die Hard movie like that. 79 cents a gallon or some damn thing.

Hey, i just googled the image. I'm not at home to take a screenshot.

If it were me, i'd have the Dragon's Tooth out along with maxed out run silent and invisibility biomods.

[actually the prod is great for taking out the Men and Women in Black]

Diesel would be at least $4.50 at that point.

Let me tell you that unleaded 95 octane here is around US$7.50. I'm not complaining, though. I don't have a car, and I'd rather see cars driven less, so 20-30 a gallon would be great!

(Of course, we pay in SEK/L, but hey...)

We can't even buy 95 octane here.

I've already seen $4 diesel, so $4 gas isn't far behind. I bet it's already way over $4/gal in downtown SF.

Almost all of the pumps in the US are from 87 to 93. You can get lower or higher but all the gas stations are in that range. The gas is listed as (RON+MON)/2. I believe in Europe they just display Research Octane Number (RON)
