The above is "a good one", but it also brings me to a question. I remember in the 1960's, European gas was about double of US gas. I hope that is still not the case with our $3.25 /gallon price. What does European petrol go for these days?
Not sure what the average in mainland Europe is, but in the UK it's around $9 a gallon.

Even when you factor in the difference in volume between the US gallon and Imperial gallon it still comes out at $7 a gallon.

Right !! when I came to the US, some 15 years ago, I payed here about a quarter what gas costed in Germany at the time (GE slapped on almost 90% in taxes and fees). So when I had a Diesel it made sense to take a ~30 minutes drive to Holland and save about a buck per Liter

Sometimes even in pairs (kind of a gang-up). This happened, e.g., on this thread "SOPA, the bill that wants to cripple your internet" and my thread "Web addiction and brain change". I posted a few replies on this SOPA thread and was finally barred when i hit back at them. It made me decide not to be engaged on this forum any longer. I was helped a few times with problems i had and i want to extend my thanks for that. I am, however, done with this forum.
Patience is a virtue!!

At a $110 a barrel.
42 gallons to a barrel.
19.5 gallons of gasoline per barrel.

OPEC is getting the majority of the money.
Then the oil companies.

This is what one barrel makes.
WHAT A BARREL OF CRUDE OIL MAKES


Quote:
Product Gallons per barrel

gasoline----------------------------------------------------------- 19.5
distillate fuel oil
(Includes both home heating oil and diesel fuel) ----------------------------------------9.2
kerosene-type jet fuel ----------------------------------------------4.1

residual fuel oil------------------------------------------------------2.3
(Heavy oils used as fuels in industry, marine transportation and for electric power generation)

liquefied refinery gasses --------------------------------------------1.9

still gas------------------------------------------------------------ 1.9

coke-------------------------------------------------------------- 1.8

asphalt and road oil------------------------------------------------ 1.3

petrochemical feedstocks ------------------------------------------1.2

lubricants --------------------------------------------------------- 0.5

kerosene---------------------------------------------------------- 0.2

other------------------------------------------------------------- 0.3

Figures are based on 1995 average yields for U.S. refineries. One barrel contains 42 gallons of crude oil. The total volume of products made is 2.2 gallons greater than the original 42 gallons of crude oil. This represents "processing gain."

Oh no. Maybe in the US. In Europe the matter is somewaht different. See #875 by Seavixen. In most European countries grosso modo 1 euro of about 1.60-1.70 euro/liter goes to the government coffers, i.e. about 60% of what the consumer pays at the gas station. For Americans recalculating: price about $8.00/US gallon at the gas station.

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
