And just how big is a pint of beer? (...it comes in pints?)

another Dave in BC (who'd be happy to pay $3.50 a gallon, even a small one)

568 mL in Britain and Ireland and to some extent in other Commonwealth nations. There are two customary pints used in the United States: a liquid pint (473 mL) and a less-common dry pint (551 mL).

Arent you glad you asked! Seems even the pint of beer is smaller in the US Now we know why they pay less for a pint of beer as well

The "ounce" was the same in US measure or Imperial. However - 160 oz to an Imperial Gallon, 128 oz to a US gallon.

so - a quart is 1/4 of a gallon, so: a quart is 40 oz imperial, or 32 oz US
so a pint (1/2 qt) is 20 oz imperial, 16 oz US

So when you were in the US, and ordered a pint of beer, not only did you get weaker beer, you got less of it, too!

Fuel cost vs Universe.

To get further than a pint of beer, this can help to get a perspective of a small or big pint, or a gallon, or a big imperial one, or $5/gal, or $8/gal, or $15/gal vs Universe. Enjoy it.

When I have "one beer" at the local pub, it is a small pitcher, about 60 ozs. So over a week I may have 2-3 "beers" on the average, maybe less in winter and more in summer.

No, it's never too cheap. In my daily work, I have to drive 50 to 100 miles per day. At $3.50/gallon, I can't afford to do other things due to gas taking a higher percentage of my income.

In addition, Friday and relatives passed away. This week I have to make an unexpected 1200 mile trip at $3.50/gallon.

No, gas can never be too cheap!

remember when gas went over a dollar per gallon? back in 74 i think it was.
at the time you could buy a car for $3,000.
no gas has gon up $2.50 and cars have gone up$17,000.

i can't believe its the cost of gas we complain about.

Heating fuel goes up in the winter and vehicle fuel goes up in the sumer when people take vacations. Go figure.
