With all the talk at the moment that a war in Iraq is, in part, about the control of oil, I was wondering what kind of price Americans think is expensive for petrol (gas).
In Sydney we are currently paying around 1$AUD/litre, which works out to be about $US2.25/gallon. We consider that to be pretty expensive, although the price has fluctuated between $AU0.85 - $AU1 a litre over the past couple of years.
So, the questions are:
What price are you currently paying for your vehicle fuel?
At what price/gallon (or litre) do you think your fuel is becoming expensive?
- Do fuel prices actually make a difference to the way you would vote or is that a furphy portrayed by the media?
As a side note, we had a lesson dealt to us about fuel prices when we visited Europe - we paid a hefty $AU2.50/litre in France so in the scheme of things, I’m aware that Australia doesn’t do too badly at the petrol pump
