Over here in the UK we now have the ELEVEN Dollar Gallon !
Last night in the UK, I paid £1.29 per LITRE for Diesel (that’s over US$2.50 for a litre…). As everyone knows there are approximately 4.546 litres in a gallon, so that’s a staggering £5.86 (over US$11) a gallon.
Ah, but wait – It’s not quite that bad, because the US gallon is smaller than our Imperial gallon (obviously Texas didn’t have a hand in the specification, otherwise it’d be much bigger… 🙂 ) – a US gallon is only 3.78 litres – or 3.78 liters, to use colloquial spelling.
So the UK prices only equate to £4.87 a US gallon, or US$9.53 – not so bad then, eh ?
As Frank Sinatra sang, “The best is yet to come…” Heehee… 🙂
(P.S. the Microsoft spell-checker wanted to change litres to litters, and Sinatra to Sumatra… – sometimes I worry. )
