But is this an Imperial Gallon or a US Gallon?
UK uses Imperial units, so it would be an Imperial gallon. :P

The Earth has enough oil to last us well past another 10 years.

There is no oil shortage, it's the oil companies getting greedy and using scare tactics to brain wash people into thinking so.
The key point is consumption. A US citizen uses on average 3.5 times the energy compared to a German or French citizen. That's the problem. There is a lot of room for improvement - and rising energy cost may help.

I don't blame anybody. I was just quoting the statistics. And of course not every citizen. only the average citizen. There sure is somebody that consumes what you save. But it is not only cars, also electricity, boats, lawnmovers and anything that needs energy.

I certainly do not regret not having a car at college (or at all), the bus is great for that. I would ride my bike more, but I am too lazy.

We fluctuate around the $1.50-$1.70 per litre here in Australia depending on fuel type. 91/Ethanol to 98

It's gouging, plain and simple. Oil companies literally have us over a barrel

Sorry Wolfgang, US gallon. I know Europe and the UK pay higher prices. We, US find it difficult too. No reason for it other than greed. The $9.81 gas will also rise. Ack!

Well, in Germany 70% of the price is taxes. I think it is similar in the other European countries.

I was paying almost $4.00 gallon 21 years ago so it's really not that bad.
