On that point, I cannot say anything, my wife pays about US 0.50 cents liter for Shell diesel and I pay about US 0.55 cents for a liter of Shell 98 octane

I think I'm paying about NZ $1.40 per L atm and enjoying the "low" prices it was at $1.85 during the middle of the year. I bet someone will chime in that the Us dollar is higher so they pay more but thats not the issue buying power is, and Americans earn better wages than the average person in NZ does.

Yeah you are right, somebody who has not travelled to Europe and seen the gas prices there will chime in with a sad story about not being able to fill up and eat food on the same day
