You only say that because you live in the good ol' USA ($3.79/gallon). If you lived in the UK ($8.06/gallon) for example, the benefits would be more pronounced


Goodness, I think even I would put a boat tail on my car if gas was $8.06 per gallon. Where I live in the US, I only have to pay $3.15 per gallon.

What is this "gallon" you people speak of?

Regular unleaded gasoline costs $1.29/L in my area as of yesterday.

That would be $4.88 per gallon.

A gallon is 3.785 liters.

Ok, normally I don't use the metric system (even for length... expressing inches with the decimal system is just as easy) , but I have to agree the US liquid volume units are the most screwed up overcomplicated pile of crap I've even seen. I don't even have them memorized so I often use grams when cooking... people wonder why I have a gram scale on my kitchen counter :lol:

But recipes insist on using volumetric measurements.

Hello all. Just a quick few words to never take life for granted. Get along with your friends and family always because you never know when a loved one could be taken from you. I recently lost my sister over the weekend. She was only 45, married with 3 kids. Imagine being her daughter, and going to wake her up from a nap, to find her gone, and never to be able to see her or talk to her again. This has been a huge reality check for me and it goes out to all of you young adults on here. Be safe, and live your life to the fullest!

To Matt:

I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to your sister. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers. I've never lost anyone that close to me, but I can't imagine how tough that must be. May she rest in peace.
