Yesterday I stopped to fill up the gas tank on my way home from Baby Play Group, and I just had to share for those of you back in the States . . . this may put things into perspective a little . . .
The price at the pump was €1.839 per liter of gas.
I pumped 51.47 liters of gas, totaling €94.65.
51.47 liters = 13.59 gallons
€94.65 = $125.24
Therefore, I paid $9.22 per gallon of gas.
Lucky for us, we have one car, walk a lot, and don't have to fill up often. Just one more reason to bike everywhere!
