For our U.S. Friends, $1.32 per liter is approx $5.00 per US Gal (just a reference point!)

So when our southern friends moan about paying $3.75 per gallon - cry me a river, folks!

The savings on fuel, booze is wwaayyyy cheaper, food can be cheaper, places to stay are less expensive and nicer (state parks etc.) Combine that with great weather and meeting truly excellent people........no wonder we spend most of our holidays in the States!!!

Looking forward to another road trip this summer...in the States.

It is what it is. As a driver, I've purchased fuel in Oregon anywhere from 28 cents a gallon (1968) to $4.10 (2009). Loved those gas station wars... where competing stations that were across the street from one another kept lowering their price per gallon

Right now, at the ElCheapo station near me here in Portland, it's $3.49 USD

Donna, I was only 4 years old in '68. Be careful, you're going to giveaway your age.

LOL, my hubby was born that year. Here in Central FL gas is 3.63 a gallon today. Yesterday it was 3.59. Not going in the right direction for sure.

Maybe... But they have other issues. I took a Lamborghini Gallardo for a spin around the Las Vegas Speedway last year. Fun car, but absolutely no place for a child seat. Also, from personal experience, there is not a lot of head room. If you are 6'2", you will not be able to wear a helmet. Fortunately, through skills or luck, I didn't need the helmet.

Here she is:



Ain't she a beaut?

Okay, I'm not too many months from celebrating another one of those "oh NO'" birthdays... they end in a ZERO. But as my older Aunt often tells me "I know I will be .?(OH NO) years old.... you younger bucks are NOT SURE that will happen for you. Embrace birthdays... the more you have.. the longer you live!

When "younger" folks make a wise crack about my age, I just look at 'em and say: . . . "You should live so long."

Then I remind them that while they are still working every day and drinking every night so they can go back to work the next day, I'm gonna be sitting on the beach.

Already over $4.00 some places in Palm Beach,Fl.
Glad I only work there sometimes!

I started driving during those Gas Wars Donna and I remember the crazy Price Wars that were rampant at the time.

I also remember the Oil Embargo all too well when we had to wait in line to get 10 Gallons or so which was rationed for a short time.
We thought the prices were bad then?

It is going to get a lot worse I fear before getting only slightly better again and then much higher prices may well become the norm here.

Exactly one week later from my last post, that same ElCheapo station went from $3.49 to $3.59 US gallon. I just filled up this morning on my way to work. $70.23... and it will last me six business days (if I'm careful and don't need to "shop" after work). That works out to over $350 a month to commute to work. I heard on CNN this morning we can possibly expect $5 a gallon in the US by Labor Day....
