Petrol is in the range 105 to 125 cents per litre - petrol/gas is sold by the litre here now - 4.5 litres to the gallon so that makes it $5.81 to $6.9 dollars a gallon. And with crude hitting $68 a barrel it has a long way to go.
If you bump into him could you say thanks to GW Bush from me for managing to push oil prices up so high? I still imagine the conversation that must have taken place between GW and his oil buddies.
OilMan: 'Hey GW - oil prices are at a record low only $30 a barrel. Can you do anything about it? Our profits are suffering."
GW: 'Course I can. Always willing to oblige a fellow Texan. I have it - I'll start a war in the Middle East. That'll sure push the prices up and you'll be back in mega-profit land again?'
OilMan: 'Why thank you good sir - why not start in Eye Rack? And here's sumpin' for yourself Big Fella!'
