Stop moaning. We pay £1.40+ a litre in the UK. Get used to it. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24957065
Stop moaning? What a Pratt you turned out to be.
First up, converting your Liters (the French metric system you were FORCED to adopt) should be done into U.S. gallons not the quite a bit larger Imperial gallon as was standard in the UK when I was a lad.
Please try to understand that the UK is TINY!
A lot of people in the USA 'HAVE' to drive 75-100 miles round trip every day to go to work and back, their are no viable bus or train alternatives outside of major cities and a lot of people need to move tools and materials, you can not get on a bus with 1000lbs of lumber to build a barn on a distant mountain!
In the USA, to survive, you need your own wheels.
England is about the same size as Americas smallest state,Vermont.
It takes about 2 days to drive across Texas on highway 10 if you stop to sleep and eat,(I'm sure many truckers do it faster
but for regular people it is quite a voyage).
Try to understand that moving a truck load of Veggies 1000 miles can not be done in a Mini Cooper.
3 or 4 England's would fit inside the State of Texas alone.
When all is aid and done,we pay as much of our income,or more,
by necessity, than the Brits,or Europeans, it is not a choice if you want to eat and have a roof over your head.
