We are paying $1.20 to $1.269/litre, that is approx $4.54 to $4.80/gallon.

Quit your whining already.

We drive as much as you guys do and often have to warm our vehicles up before we can drive them which eats up mucho gas.

Fuel shortage because we've been selling so much gas to Mexico. People forget just because we drill oil here in the US doesn't mean it stays here. Oil companies sell to highest bidder. Period.

I can see Russia from my backyard!!


Hehe..
 Quoting: Texas2012


Russia CAN be seen from Alaska! I have never understood why it's a joke. Perhaps the uneducated laugh because Sarah Palin said it. She's not stupid!

This are comments from about.com:

John Concilus says:
Actually, you can see Russia from the mainland of Alaska. I’ve done so...
Although you can’t see the cliffs of Chukotka from the BEACH, if get get a 100 feet or more up the hill right behind the school, you CAN see the Russian Mainland on clear days. Honest.


Peter N. says:
I have seen Russia from Alaska as well. It’s easy. The mountains (which are quite high) in far eastern Russia are easily visible from Gambel, on St. Lawrence Is., AK. You may not be able to see the ground in Russia from mainland AK, but high mountain peaks are easily seen, especially from SLI.

Dinesh Desai says:
The two Diomede islands in the Bering Strait are only two miles apart. The big Diomede belongs to Russia while the little Diomede is part of Alaska. So, without worrying about the horizon, one can easily see Russia from Alaska.

 Quoting: MaryAlananB


I know, it pisses me off when I read that too. Not only are things more spread out here, for the most part we DO NOT have much in the way of public transportation. In the area where I live unless you are going to a few specific towns, there is no train service. Bus service is awful and sparse. My husband's commute is 120 miles round trip. How many of you in EU have a commute like that?
 Quoting: INK3


well apes there is people in europe that live away from groceries and have to do 100 km round trip....but they are not that mental to go everyday, not even once a week...organize yourself, shop local, produce something and stfu

I doesn't even pass my mind to do even 30 km if not a couple of time a month
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25001069


The difference is that a hundred km roundtrip is still only something like 60 miles or so. People in europe tend to forget that their entire countries are only about the size of any given state. Where I live at here in N.C towns are normally 15 to 30 miles apart and cities can be a hundred miles apart. My daily trip to work is around 85 miles round trip, thats each day and thats if I only go to work and straight back home. Factor in a stop at a store and my total can easily top 100 miles or more a day. So when you tell me to shop local you failt to realize how far I live from any stores at all, fuckin smartass.

The gas prices in the US are ridiculously cheap compared to the litre price of approx. 1,75€ Germany, let alone some European countries with even higher prices like the Netherlands or Norway.

I have no clue whatsoever why you should panick due to such laughable prices per gallon in your country, which, by the way, literally controls the world's oil prices by its military might and it's epic financial fraud via a completely manipulated $ value.

 Quoting: MaryAlananB


we got uk prices AND us distances- yet mad max apart- we dont have anything like the us behaviours ( and no we dont all drive supercharged v8 interceptors in oz...)

god knows many (most??) of us would love an xb coupe with a supercharged 351

most of us drive fuel efficient cars that get 5l/100km or less

I got a thirsty diesel 4wd- it uses 10l/100km

richer folks that can afford new cars buy euro cars that get less than 5l/100km

I consider a long trip 1000km or more- that's a weekender trip down to my sisters place- another 200km gets me to mums house

I currently live in town (30km) but I did live at a farm (rural property we called it) it took 40 mins at 160kmh to drive to the nearest shop.... so I made sure I had ciggy papers....

but `you have to drive 50km each way AND pay less than a dollar a litre..'


boo hoo

cry me a river...
