We went out yesterday to the library, and my eyes happened to fall on an ever-present gas station. The average price of gasoline out here is US$4.40 per gallon. This is astronomical, and only last week, it was around $4.01. How much are you paying for gas (or petrol, if you will), or if you are commuting by mass transit, how much is gas in your area? The curious would like to know.
