USA, Stop your Whining!

Gas* is about $US5.75 a gallon here in Australia .. but that doesn’t stop us from buying and exporting a record number of V8s cars to the US (http://tinyurl.com/2sg7ec).

I’m not suggesting that this is sustainable, just that at $Us3.50 a gallon, US residents can cope with a few more fuel price rises yet.

* Last I checked, Petroleum (or Petrol as we call it here in Australia) is a liquid, not a gas 😛  **

** Yes yes, I know, it originates from “Gasoleum”, no?

    Just because it could be worse doesn't mean it's not bad.
