So maybe we should stop complaining?
“Honked off by American pump prices? Cheer up. You could be commuting in Oslo, Norway, where gasoline costs $9.85 a gallon and filling up a Mini Cooper would set you back $130. That’s the priciest petrol on a list of world gas prices released Wednesday by Associates for International Research Inc., a Massachusetts-based relocation consulting firm that tracks the cost of living in dozens of countries. In fact, at just more than four bucks a gallon on average, U.S. gas is still cheap compared with much of the world.”
$9.85 a gallon. Imagine that. Now, doesn’t $4.50 a gallon sound like a deal? It’s half off! Really, I don’t mind gas prices going up, as I think it will force people to rethink their transportation needs and wants, as well as create a greater interest in alternative fuels and smaller or electric cars. I look forward to the day when I can drive my electric car that was charged up by my own solar panels!
