As gas prices inch closer to $4/gallon, I hear lots of people complaining about the cost of filling up a tank. But scroll down through this infographic to the bottom, and look at the cost to fill a tank in the UK:
50 liters for £68.45. Fifty liters is 13.2 gallons, so about the size of the average small/medium car tank. And £68.45 is $110. A hundred and ten US dollars to fill a 13 gallon tank. Perhaps we shouldn’t complain?
Of course, maybe it would be a good thing if we had to pay that much for gas. Maybe then we’d get better access to mass transportation, and maybe people would be more willing to walk or bike if they only had to go a few miles.
