I just have:

This forum is actually pretty tolerant of MPG discussion compared to most, so no forum invasions please!.

Interestingly, this topic is talking of the 2 pounds/litre price that is coming in September 2008, apparently.

In US money + gallons, this is $15.14 per gallon what would people in the US make of that?

Ridiculous! It's just corporate greed. We let corporations dictate foreign policy and let them dictate prices for a supposedly free market, when in fact it's a monopoly of a few.

Actually we would go back to wood fired steam vehicles at that price.

I have GasSavers.org posted in all my signiture on Scion Life and it is retroactive to all my posts for over 2 years there so over 2000 posts have it listed.

I don't understand exactly how it works but if you were to convert your salary with just a straight currency conversion, is that how much you would make in the UK?

I guess what I am saying is currency conversion is one thing but how does it compare to salaries? As in for the same job (with salaries converted to US dollars), do you make the same in the US as in the UK, or ?

I will just go and look at the CIA website (very good for finding out about countries) (just google 'CIA XXXXXX' where XXXX is the country, and get 'the world factbook')

UK GDP per capita : $35,300 (US dollars)
US GDP per capita : $46,000 (US dollars) - That is very annoying, much better than the UK!!!
NewZealand GDP : $27,300 (and my salary has gone down by the UK/NZ ratio too!)

So, that $15.14 gallon would actually be $19.73 per gallon. How would you like that in the US?

In NZ, it is currently $2NZ per litre, and that works out as $1.67US per litre, so $6.30US per gallon with raw figures, or $10.61 in real terms.

So, I am paying $10.61US per gallon! No wonder I like hypermiling! (and no wonder I am building an e-bike and an alternator wind generator!)
