    Petrol prices in England... absolutely disgusting....

    Although it was insane in the UAE, where it was cheaper than water...

    I don't do Imperial measures of fluids desperately well!

    1 Gallon = 8 Pints = 8 * 0.568 = 4.544 litres... so 0.85 * 4.544 = 3.86.

    Convert that into (increasingly worthless) dollars and you get $7.10.

    Which I feel is fairly conclusive.
    Let me edit that...I meant litre not gallon...and the avg on how much a american uses his/her car thats $25 everyday on gas...and that is a lot if you are in the middle class

    And the rate the prices are going up now days(highest 14 cents in 14 days!) you can expect 1 litre will cost $6-7 dollars in a year

    And back to the question in hand, it's about 1 and a half miles each way for me to get to work, so about 5 minutes (I always go early to miss the traffic)

    Most of my travelling is in the evenings...

    I walk 2 miles to university every day on a very steep hill which is bit of a bugger.
    PI, $2.10 per gallon is damn cheap mate . As per my estimation a US gallon is equal to around 3.7 litres. In India , 1 litre petrol costs around Rs 45 which equates to $ 1 . So the same petrol costs $ 3.7 in India . Here money is earned in Rupees and not dollars. It's still very cheap mate. Petrol prices are set to increase again by about Rs 2 within a fortnight due to increased oil prices.


    My Junior college was about 7 kms from my house and i used to travel by bike. It took about 40 mins for the complete to and fro . Now i am having holidays and going to a morning class which is about 2.5 kms away and it takes about 10 mins for me for the complete duration included going and coming. Now i am applying for Nizam's College which is about 4 kms away from my house.

    If you guys think it is cheap try to run your house at a avg of $30,000 a year in which you have to pay taxes...mortgage(if you have any), food, lots of other stuff and $25 more dollars a day on gas...trust me man it is not easy...it may look cheap but it is not cheap...

    I know it's very hard and i come from a middle-class family myself. But i said that when that petrol price is compared with other countries, it is very very cheap.

    $ 25 worth gas a day?

    That's like 11.9 gallons, which is 44 litres. That's a lot.

    If that's the money that coming in then there's little or no tax to pay...

    And I'll think you'll find that a lot of people have to get by on that sort of money in the UK (I know I myself do) and our petrol is about 4 times that price.

    Roughly a tank-full of my car, which costs 30 ($75+ dollars) to fill up...

    Alos means that someone does a heck of a lot of miles a day (300+ ?)

    It's crazy in Mumbai with all the traffic congestion . PI the US had a sucessful invasion of Iraq, your oil prices should be fine for now.

    People here in Australia complain about petrol prices all the time, but it is so incredibly cheap compared to other countries.
    HERE: 1 litre= $1 Aus = 40p
    70c US

    Anyway, it only takes me 5 mins to travel each way every week-day.

    I only drive a couple of times a week at the moment (shopping and bowling matches).

    I walk a lot - cheaper and I need the exercise
