However, when you pull up to the pump they are actually taking 3.5 litre off at the till so actually charging 98.40 / litre.

The equivalent to $101.9 / litre is US $3.22 per US gallon. Remember that the US gallon is 5/6 the size of an Imperial Gallon , why I don't know.

I am still amazed at the guys I see in F350's and Hummers flying around with their feet flat on the floor, I can only imagine the sight of the gas guage needle just dropping as you look at it. Can you imagine how much it would cost to fill one of those monsters?

I drive a MAzda and just about puke when I put $50 of gas into it. When I bought it three years ago it cost about $32 to fill it.

My wife drives a PAssat - Premium unleaded - OUCH!

Its not 100 dollars a litre dummy. Its 100 CENTS.
