Thats why i gave you a round about price for a gallon for the benefit of the US. :P

our farmers and smaller lorry firms were supposed to be setting up road blocks over here in the UK to prevent the tankers getting to the pumps but like only one bloke turned up

yah all of u guys have a point but nothing to talk about. i live in the middle east. YAH i live across the gulf from iran. i live in the UAE. I had to go to an industrial part of my city to a plumbing store with a guy who only spoke arabic. then i had to talk to himi n arabic for a long time then finally he didnt want to sell it to me because i was american.i had to go to different stores for all diferent pieces. Then i got it finally and came home. Although it was hard to get and i had to march all over town it was good because i ended up paying a total of about like 8 dollars for the hole thing including lighter and hairspray.

yeah i live in aus and i already had all the stuff i needed( a 6 inch combustion chamber, 2 inch barrel and screw cap) and all i need was a sparker and a reducer. it ended up costing me 35 bucks!!!!! i went to swans plumbing plus and they dont sell 6 to 2 inch reducers so i had to get two reducers(6 to 4 and 4 to 2)and that ended up costing me about 30 bucks and then went to wool worths(or safeway as you tassie and victorian rebels call it)and got a really good sparker for 5 bucks! we need a really discount store for pvc stuff.
i had a look at bunnings but they didn't have much and it was quite expensive!

i disagree bunnings has always had the stuff i needed except for a large ball valve that i got from some where else
but i can see the problem of getting the 6"- 4" reducer bunnings only goes up to 4" pipe but i reckon there really cheap every other place i have been to was much more expensive!!!!

im a true aussie and i think bunnings is a rip but. think about it. in one shop you have everything that you need to build just about anything. i go to local plumming stored there at least 1/3 les than the price at bunnings some times 2/3 of the price. so for all you aussies out there thinking its exspensive go to local plumming stores same type of range in pluming needs actually quite abit better in most cases. but you cant buy parts to mod your sprinkler there.

yeaq and petrol over here is a rip its goin at 120 cent per a litre it use to be ony around 80-90 cents but lately it has just sky rocketed.
