    U.S. gas: So cheap it hurts

    Relatively low taxes have kept pump prices far below most other developed nations, which some say is precisely why the current runup is so painful.

    Re: U.S. gas: So cheap it hurts

    The difference is staggering. As of late March, U.S. gas prices averaged $3.45 a gallon. That compares to over $8 a gallon across much of Europe, $12.03 in Aruba and $18.42 in Sierra Leone.
    Aruba? lmao, the furthest distance between 2 pts is something like 70 km in that country.

    Sure, if .12 per gallon is enough for you to give up your freedoms, sure.

    Either way, no matter where you live... you're government will rape you any way they can.

    Nah, I'm shutting up about it.

    If people aren't aware of how bad their governments rape them by now... nothing I say is going to awaken them to it.

    Re: U.S. gas: So cheap it hurts

    I live in Alberta, which is oil production central, and we pay 1.26 a litre (4.77 a gallon), so yah, the US has it pretty good.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
