2. Puts things in perspective somewhat
when we hear complaints about gas prices. Thankfully it's been converted to US dollars & gallons I'm assuming.

5. If you lived in London you could take the Tube
Back out of town

Back to the Rolling Pin.

Then you'd feel like a dying clown with the stink of Rin Tin Tin.

Seriously, the only thing that graphic shows is how much different localities subsidize automobile usage.

Are you glad you live in an area that promotes a very wasteful mode of transportation?

Whoooooooo are you?

3. Are the volumes comparable?
Are the world prices adjusted to per gallon or US prices adjusted to liters?

6. Image is at least 2-1/2 years old, but pretty representative of today.

10. Must be old...
I paid $1.004 / litre CDN for gas in Toronto this morning. That converts to $3.65 USD / gallon.

8. whoops ... must have gone from a "RW" talking point back to a "lefty" talking point ...
I remember, after enduring near $4/gallon prices under Bush, Repugs were saying "just wait until you're paying $10/gallon for gas under Barry HUSSEIN Osama" ...

Of course, with Dems in charge, there's a slightly better chance that someone might investigate ...
