Remember the Good Old Days?

Gas for $1.32 per gallon?

Look again ... that's EUR 1.32 per Liter, which works out to about $6.34 per gallon at today's rates ($1.27 to EUR 1.00).

My friends and family in the US can take this as a message to stop whining.

And for a little amusement, let's just file this story under the category "They will take my SUV from me when they can pry it out from under my fat, lazy butt ...: People are hocking their jewelry and other valuables to tank up.

Even if this doesn't describe you (if it did, you would have already hocked the laptop to tank the Hummer® and wouldn't be reading this), wander over to Germany Doesn't Suck and read about National Bike Week. Then follow J's advice, if only for a week.

Hummer is a registered trademark of the General Motors Corporation, which has also trademarked it in categories such as IC 028. US 022 023 038 050. G & S: BALLOONS, BOARD GAMES, CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENTS, COLLECTABLE TOY CARS, DIE CAST VEHICLE MODELS, PEDDLE CARS, COIN- OR NON-COIN OPERATED PINBALL MACHINES, PLASTIC VEHICLE HOBBY KITS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF TOY VEHICLES, PLASTIC VEHICLE MODELS, RADIO CONTROLLED CARS, VIDEO GAMES, NAMELY, COIN-OPERATED VIDEO GAMES AND STAND ALONE VIDEO GAME MACHINES as well as IC 018. US 001 002 003 022 041. G & S: Backpacks, billfolds, briefcases, business card cases, carry-on bags, credit card cases, coin cases, duffel bags, fanny packs, garment bags for travel, luggage, overnight bags, purses, sport bags, tote bags, trunks for traveling, umbrellas and wallets.

I knew you guys had to be paying through the nose. I do hate the gas prices, but I have done two things, gotten cars that use the cheap regular unleaded gas, and learned to make good lists for when I go out so I don't have to drive to the grocery store (25 miles) but once a week.

When we have been on holiday to the USA we always find that the gas prices are incredibly cheep compared to Europe
