$3 per gallon, time for some perspective

Americans are horrified that petrol (gas) is hitting $3 per gallon over here. In Australia we are paying AU$1.40 per litre (or more, depending on where you live), which is US$4.70 per gallon.

After writing this I realised that was pretty hypocritical, since there are probably lots of countries paying even more. In London (Essex), according to petrolprices.com they are paying US$8.25 per gallon. Man.

Oh, and as part of this process I found out there is an imperial gallon and a US gallon (these figures are US gallons). Crazy imperial system...
