Thread: Gas prices within usa?




  1. Default

    Eh, if you want to experience England just get in the shower with your clothers on, drink tea, and converse about the royalty :)

    JUST KIDDING! Being a former RTCW clan leader, I had a division in europe, and really, they were not that different except for the accents over RogerWilco. I must say I havent met someone from England I didnt like yet.

    And Geno's is a one of a kind restaraunt :)

    And the reason we pay so less of gas is that we have a bunch of oil resources here in the US, so we dont have to import as much. Europe has like no more oil resources left, so they pay alot to have it shipped into their country, just like Japan has to pay for food as they dont have much land area to grow. The octane defintely has something to do with it also.

    I just drove to florida and back 1500miles each way. costed me about 200 bux in gas. :thumb: About the same as plane ticket, but I get to see the pretty scenery! :thumb: :thumb:

    I drove to Atlanta about a year ago. I should have flown, even though the gas was cheaper. The only scenery was trees, and lots of them. The south looks a hell of a lot like the north minus the hills and the cold. I love to drive, but 14hours of starring at trees wasnt my idea of scenery :)

    well, I like the roads in the south.
    You may think that there is nothing but hills and trees, but you gotta understand that I can get on I94 going from indiana through chicago to wisconsin (about 100miles or so) and not see a good mile of road and no forest!!! so to me seeing smooth road like that was very nice!!!!
    Oh its flat as hell here too, so I enjoy the hills, and the speedlimit!!! (55mph here :( )

    a few misconceptions that I would like to change

    1) it always amuses me to read "gas" when you're talking about "oil" :laugh:
    2) Europe has loads of oil resources left - oil is measured in a standard called "Brent crude". "crude" is another name for oil. "Brent" is the name of an oil field offshore Scotland in the North Sea. The North Sea is the largest area for oil and gas volumes in Europe.
    2a) Europe is less reliant on oil/gas/LNG imports than the USA.
    3) Europe is more than one "country".
    4) The biggest reason oil/petrol/"gas" is cheaper in the USA than in Europe is because of taxes.
    5) the Octane level is controlled by refineries and is determined by the distillation temperature. It has very little to do with where the oil comes from directly.

    On a quick google check I found this website which does a reasonable comparison of prices.
