For my fellow Americans who might be bemoaning the fact that they are paying $3 a gallon for gasoline, consider the fact that most European drivers have it a lot worse. Here in the UK, drivers pay 90 pence for a litre of gas. Americans pay 36 pence for that same litre.
Note: 1 litre = 0.26 gallons. Today, 1 U.S. dollar = 0.561892454 British pound.
