Price of Fuel

Gas/Petrol prices are on the verge of reaching a psychological point people in many other countries have experienced. That is, we here in California are about to pay 1.00 unit of currency for one liter of fuel.

I know most Americans do not use the metric system, but paying less than $1.00 per liter used to set the American driver apart from his or her European/Canadian counterparts.

1 US gallon is equal to 3.785 liters, so as soon as the price (currently at $3.659 per gallon) reaches $3.789 per gallon, we Californians will be paying $1.00 per liter for gas/petrol.

So, $45 to fill up my 45-liter Honda? I bet that V8 SUV isn't making you feel very clever right now.

  5. It's getting more and more ridiculous, really. $100 to fill up a truck. Glad I have a 4 cylinder.

  6. Gas prices are ridiculous! We are paying $3 here in East TN. I can't imagine paying the California prices. But, it's all supply and demand.

  7. And that`s still way cheaper than what we pay for(about 1.50-1.60 $ per liter).
    This makes me want to get a bike.

  8. Good I don't have a car, though sad the joy of driving is so highly influenced now by the absurd prices.

  18. i remember summer of 2008 when fuel prices hit 141.9 per litre in southern alberta, basically forced me to sell my truck, it would be cheaper for me at the point to make payments on a new car rather than pay for the gas in the truck
