fuel leak

YahooNews released a story about the current costs of fuel/petrol (or, “gas”, for my American friends), which shows how various countries compare–i.e. who’s the most expensive? While it’s at the bottom of the page, here are the leaders (with conversions made for the American readers in brackets):

Country             £/litre             (US conversion: $/gal)*
1. Norway……………….1.64                             12.01
2. Turkey………………..1.62                             11.87
3. Netherlands………1.48                             10.83
4. Italy……………………1.46                             10.69
5. Greece………………1.45                             10.60
6. Denmark……………1.43                             10.46
7. UK………………………1.42                             10.37
8. Sweden………………1.41                             10.32
9. Eritrea…………………1.41                             10.32
10. Belgium……………1.40                             10.23

Notice who’s not on this list? America. Why? Because they’re not even close to struggling to the same degree.

________________________________
* This figure is operating on two variables: 1) one gallon = 4.55 litres, and 2) £1 = $1.61, which is today’s conversion rate.
