    See Andy why I won't swap any of my beer for one? If I want one then I'd just make it myself just like my beer. :D

    Next time I go to Philly, possibly tommorow, Ill get one and take a picture. Basically its sirloin steak, chopped up and fried. Onions are friend along with the steak. The steak and onions are put onto a hoagie/sub/hero (whatever you call it) roll and then cheese is put on. American, Provolone, or Cheeze Wiz. Cheeze Wiz is the best, and is an artifical yellow cheese. And thats it. I like pizza sauce on mine which actually classifies it as Pizza Steak.

    It is very greasy, and extremely bad for you, but many people live off them just like Big Macs :) I'd take a cheesesteak over a burger any day though. And just for some more BG on the steak sandwich, you would order it at Geno's (possibly the best cheesesteak place in Philly) like such: "Pizza With" consists of a cheeze wiz steak with onions and sauce. The With designates "with onions".

    A regular cheesesteak with provolone and sauce, no onions would be "Provy Pizza Without".

    Heh, now all you Aussies will know how to order the best sandwich ever :thumb:

    I've got to admit it sounds very tasty! :lips:

    My guess is Geno's is a one of a kind. The sandwich is known as a Philly Cheesesteak around here. Provalone or white american cheese is the way to go for me. In addition to the grilled onion, you can also get them with grilled green pepper. :)

    Getting back to topic: We Americans are spoiled for many reasons and how much (or rather little) we pay for gasoline compared to other parts of the world is one of them. Of course, much of the price we pay for gasoline is taxes. I suspect the same is the case in Europe, but more so.

    Didn't know about the differences in the ranges of octaine ratings. That could have an effect on the pricing too as stated above.

    I think the gallon is here to stay, just like the liter. For more confusion England goes by the Imperial Gallon, which is larger than the US gallon and is the equivalent to 4.545 liters!

    Yea, in this regard, the US is socialist. Since the top 10% most wealthy pay 80% of the taxes, that means that the top 10% pay for everyone's gas and roads.

    Sad...

    If we forced gas buyers to pay for their roads and gas they'd use their cars more sparinly and the need for road maintenence would decrease dramatically.

    However, we do have a large class of uneducated working poor, and due to the layout of our country, we need cheap transportation for this group to get to their factory jobs. This may sound crazy to a European, but it is not uncommon for a person to drive 50 miles to get to his factory job that pays $10/hour

    Interesting read zeradul, I never thought of it like that. I have never been anywhere but US and Canada so I am blinded by our society. One day I hope to experience something else, most likely england.
