Yup, $2,55 when I came over a few months back and $3,05 was the best I could find today. Still, could be worse, I hear it's £1,05 per litre in Blighty

But I'm not worried. Jaypork says prices are coming down and will stay down, so that's good enough for me.
I said they will come down over the next year--and believe they will. But I have never said that they will stay down because unless and until the world find alternate sources of energy they will continue to rise. That is because there is a huge, albeit finite, amount of fossil fuels in the world. Simple supply and demand pressure could eventually push prices way up.

Don't believe everything you think

Not my fault I caught their error. Maybe they were some more of the Regent University Alums.

And of course when you factor in good ol' inflation into the mix, market flux and energy hits a .96 or 1.14 is actually running on empty. If we did NOT have fuel prices and food prices going UP at 3X inflation, there would be negative numbers on the GDP. So are you saying that you are happy that fuel/food prices are up so the GDP numbers are positive?
