RE: How much do you pay?

We in the US don't really have a lot to complain about, other than the fact that we've been spoiled in this arena for so long.

I just got back from Germany where diesel is the equivalent of about US$5/gal and premium gasoline is about US$6/gal.

Thank God for the new frugal diesels. I drove a turbocharged 2.0 liter BMW diesel, which drove like a small rocket and averaged 35 mpg with highway speeds of 100mph+ and lots of steep mountain grades.

The US really needs to wake up and smell the diesels!
