I think comparing USA to many other countries isn't very fair. USA is much more spread out and, atleast in my area, public transportation is non-existant. Major cities are different, but more rural areas is what im talking about.

Around here, either you need a car or find someone else to drive you around everywhere (lol, yeah right). There is no bus, subway, train, etc, and biking/walking is impossible since I cant do such up to 50 miles a day..

So, for example, it might suck for my friend in Spain where its much more expensive to fill the tank, but she can walk to school/work/mall/market. Remove those from your driving and imagine how much less you'd be driving...

I spent $38.08 on my last fill up...it's rediculous because of the fact that when I got the car I was only paying $25 for fill ups. I'm driving 60 miles a day so it's very rediculous.

Yikes! This is why I don't really complain about paying $40 every two weeks to fill up.

I just pumped $15.00 for 11 days in the VX.

When I started driving this much gas would have cost $1.00 with a gas monkey filling my tank, washing the windshield, & checking the oil.

The new fuel prices have definitely changed the way more Americans are looking at transportation. Instead of putting money into some stocks this year, I bought a scooter...120+mpg. The return in savings is more than I would make in a speculative market. Good timing I think!

The universal health system is a joke with year-long waiting periods for something as simple as an ophthalmologist's appointment. Surgery is worse. In reality, either you go to the private sector or die waiting.
Portugal still rates higher than the U.S. in health care. http://www.reuters.com/article/lates.../idUSN07651650 I pay $9000+ annually for my wife and I, no kids and this is the price for employee health insurance. It goes up every year and I'm not even in my mid 20s.

Except for the higher class bracket. They could hardly care less. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

Actually a Doctor friend of mine needed a ride to NY Long Island so I drove him there and when he filled my empty tank in the xB before we left he said "is that all it takes to fill up?" He drives a 14 year old V8 powered Range Rover mostly around the city 1.5 miles at a trip. I returned to Newport RI on the same tank and then filled up again a week later.
All you have to do is look at the gas log to see the prices change or YOURSTATEgasprices.com and look at the price graph for the past several year. Then again I looked at the price of a candy bar in the checkout line at Stop and Shop and was shocked at $0.89 - used to be a nickel.
