Default Looks At These Gas Prices In Europe

If you want to feel a little better this chart, apparently updated every week charts the price of gas in US Dollars and gallons in some countries of Europe.
I don't know that this makes me feel any better but it could and most likely will be worse in the near future.

That's good...but have you ever noticed that when the AAA says on a certain date the national gasoline price average will be a certain amount, the next day or so the price is at the higher amount.

I talked to my cousin yesterday, he said gas was $4.09 a gal. by his house, in Bismark ND. I was in Boulevard Ca. yesterday afternoon $4.59 a gal. the gas station by my house in Chula Vista $4.89 go figure Boulevard is about 70 miles or so east of San Diego, in the back country.

We are paying $3.89 here near my house.
Of course you have a lot more road taxes per gallon of gas (perhaps the highest in the country) in CA than we do in AZ.
I think we have some of the cheapest gas in the nation according to what I see.
It makes the prospect of travel even harder for us to leave home!

I know they are taxed higher than we are on fuel. In the UK I know over 1/2 the price is taxes. They also have better roads than we do, but that comes at a price. In the UK when they pave or improve a roadway it is expensive, but the contractor who does the work has to maintain it for 10 years at no additional costs. The good part on the maintenance end of it is the contractor won't do shoddy work since they have to fix anything they don't right the first time.
