Shoot... I am paying about $5.22 over here in Japan.... err, I mean my company is paying $5.22 per gallon. Lately even more than that since I have been treating myself to high octane fuel. Kinda getting off topic, but it definitely does allow me to force my A/T to shift earlier.
was like 3.25 or so the other day. I was kind of happy that the premium was at like 3.50, as I think t hat those with the big cars should pay... but at the same time...its expensive

It may not be a fair comparison, but i have to pay the equivalent of 7.73 $/gallon....
Yes, Belgium, and a nice strong Euro, and a shrinking US dollar, but still in Europe the market is much more center on fuel efficiency and making cars smaller (compact but roomier) then on how much horsepowers or wheels size. Maybe the high gas price is a reason for that.
Lucky for us in north america, the euro market and asian market is pushing the us market to do the same, but still always few years later, arrrr, honda need to rebuilt my VX from a to z... would be great!
I love being in cities where I can walk and not have to drive at all. I hate living in the 'burbs. (Damn it, now I'm reminded of that Tom Hanks movie that I can't seem to find as a download anywhere...grrr)
On the never-ending quest for better gas mileage...
