RE: OFF TOPIC: The great "Gas Out"

Dear List

Whilst I don't want to fuel the discussion much further, the fuel duty
in the UK is 85% of the pump price. On a (UK) gallon of unleaded petrol
that means US$4.32 in tax (or US$5.20 on a US gallon).

On behalf of the automobile industry, please don't let the price of
fuel and tax stop you from buying those nice shiny new cars !!!

 Thank you all for your responses, I guess. Most of you were not real
apathetic towards my suggestion and rightly so as I only pay
$1.35/gallon right
now. Which seems to be the lowest of all the countries. I just don't
that it was only $1.15 just a week ago. Granted only a 15% change but
it still
sucks, even when one does have the 1000cc engine. By the way, for
every gallon
of gas that is bought here $0.43 of it is TAXES. And that does NOT
 My applogies to those of whom that did not care for this tiny
