Gas prices are creeping up again. About time for the local news to interview someone whining "It costs more than $100 to fill up my Escalade. When is the government going to DO something?"

Even wonder which countries fund their road taxes purely from gasoline instead of $100 billion highway bills?

Our gas is about 15 lei a liter. That's 5$ a gallon in American

Attention to gas prices has dramatically waned as a presidential campaign theme after the price of gasoline declined for 14 straight weeks after peaking in April.

What bullshiat is this? I paid $2.80 a month ago for gas. It's $3.44 now.

According to republicans the US pays 600 times more than anyone else because the president is a black democrat.

Have fun with that one y'all.

I got gas for $2.99/gal the other day. Course, I had gas points saved up on my grocery store card.

Came here to see people who think Venezuela isn't a massive culsterfark defend the absurd gas subsidies there.

Looks like I'm early.

Ah, now I see why the US corporate complex hates Chavez so much.

All that profit he's denying them by not letting them get their hands on that oil and sell it at a huge profit.

Eat More Possum: Our gas is about 15 lei a liter. That's 5$ a gallon in American


Five years ago, I would have thought $5 gallon gas was insane. Best deal in Los Angeles right now is about $4.05 a gallon at Arco's and other discount gas. Ironic that I am reading about it being a banner year for U.S. oil exports
Probably due to the fact that no new refineries are being built.

Does that Stacey Jones biatch in the comments have a butthole tattoo?

Also, twice the price in Australia, one place difference in pain. We're RICH BIATCH!

You need to read the slide and why its that cheep, and that the government has had it in place for years before Chavez and are too scared to change it now.
 
2012-08-18 11:20:53 AM
As usual this is somewhat wrong. In most countries that have higher prices they're not actually paying more for the gas itself, most of the price they are paying is the huge taxes they pay. For example, if you take away the tax (20% VAT and duty $2.70/gal) from the UK fuel prices it's actually only around $3.60 a gallon.

I'm not biatching about the price, I'm biatching about the statement that gas prices declined for 14 straight weeks, implying it is still decreasing today.

Typical Americans always biatching, petrol here in Atropia is 800 Kramers a litre. Pay no mind that most of that goes to the taxman to sling roller coaster rails all over my country, which is the size of one of your counties.

2012-08-18 11:27:31 AM
Yes, but the US has a wider space so people have to drive everywhere. So it should still be cheaper. The same excuse is used for why our internet coverage is relatively weak and expensive.

/Ignoring that you may not need that suv or pickup, but whatever, people will whine about what they can.

Ahhhh Fark, becoming infowars for the libs here, in most political threads, the main reason to never click on the politics tab.

Speaking of infowars, a friend of the GFs now believes all their conspiracy nutbags and thinks we are insane for not accepting them. The one going around now is all these gun incidents are Obama's way to get guns banned and that the Aurora shooter was drugged which is why he described as being in a haze the next day, when I told him mental patients have described the same thing in a psychotic episode he just said we are full of shiat. Even after giving him links to papers written on their studies.

I told the GF he's never allowed at the house and she should probably drop all contact for a while to see if we can get lower on the list in case he snaps.

Venezuelan gas prices are absolutely ridiculous. Traffic is unbearable, with cars that should have been retired years ago; and nobody is taking the new public transport options anyways, since gas is so cheap. It's just wasted money left and right.

He has a point. While gas prices did fall for 14 weeks in a row, they have been rising for the last six weeks and are only 20 cents off the peak.

FTFA: Americans have little to complain about. They pay less than half the European price for gasoline and $1.15 per gallon below the world average.

Yeah, but we also have a shiatty public transit system in most parts of our country. Europe, not so much.
