Re: Fwd: Price of Gas


We're paying $1.79 here but in the city (SF) it's $2.10!  By the way Cere's I
have to throw this in being the great liberal (not really, but
sometimes...othertimes I'm a libertarian) about European gas prices.  If we
designed cities around other means of transportation and had the mass
transportation and the will to use it we could pay those prices also.  Alas, we
have none of the above.  By the way in Canada the price of petrol is
$0.69.....per liter!
