    You think that $3+ gas is bad????

    Zimbabwe's annual inflation jumped to a record 3,700 percent in April in a stark sign of the economic turmoil blamed on government policies that has left four in five people jobless.

    The figures showing consumer prices doubled last month are likely to step up pressure on President Robert Mugabe as he cracks down on an increasingly vocal opposition and deflects Western criticism of his government.

    "This is a classic case of hyper-inflation and it shows we are going downhill and there is no visible sign that the government has the capacity to end this crisis," said consultant economist John Robertson.

    The Central Statistical Office (CSO) said on Thursday consumer prices jumped 3,713.9 percent year-on-year in April from 2,200.2 percent previously. The monthly rate of increase was 100.7 percent.

    i feel no sympathy for you.
    gas prices here are $1.20/Litre

    which is 4 litres/gal

    which equals to $4.80CAN/gal which equals to roughly $4.37US/gal

    Actually in Calgary, the average house price has more than doubled in the past 2 years (around 410,000 now), and gas prices are $1.16 a litre.
    So don't talk about cost of living here :P.

    Honestly though I'm looking forward to taking my road trip down to Cali in June because gas will be 30% cheaper.


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

    sure, i don't but i live in a small city.
    go to some bigger cities like Toronto or Montreal and they pay the same for gas, but have to drive for an hour and a half every morning to get to work.

    if you want to konw why we pay so much for gas, look up a little bullshit agreement called NAFTA.

    Yes, but the Canadian Elk and Caribou are able to rome freely over the largest oil reserve fields on earth!

    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    I hate gas. I am seriously running out of money. No job because of practice, prom expenses (

    ), gas for the car, and everything else is sucking me dry.
