Ok so i'll get my calculator out and try and impress upon you lucky bunch of ex colonials just how lucky you are..

Ok here goes

1 Liter of Petroleum ( just like Gasoline but for smart people) = 1.45
Translates to lets say $2.28 per Litre.
1 Litre = 0.2199 of a proper imperial gallon!
Thus = 0.2641 of your funny US gallons
Ergo your funny gallon = 3.7854 litres

So that Means we are Paying a whopping $8.63 Per gallon

And further more we didn't even vote for Obama


Here we go again

If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

A river runs through it. Many State lines are determined by the wandering of a large river, and that's what happened here. Kansas City Missouri is close to the the landing at Westport, MO which was the jumping off point for the wagon trains heading west.

Some wagon trains would cross the river during the late afternoon, and staying close to the river provided water and the protection of many people.

Starting out to cross half the United States, knowing how far it was between civilized points where they could trade and restock food or buy horses, etc., called for courage that a great deal of people of today simply don't have.

I ws born in Missouri, and have been a fan of the Tigers for a long time. Recently, however, they decided to take their college out of the Big 12 Sports Conference and jump to the South East Sports Conference (SEC), and I am angry with them.

Missouri, Kansas. Whats the difference?

But I must say I prefer being a Tiger than a Jayhawk.

Sorry I didn't make myself clear, the low prices are in Kansas City, MO - which is larger than Kansas City, KS.

Because of extra gas taxes in Kansas, our $2.95 in Missouri translates to $3.06 in Kansas.

Its almost $5.00 a galon here in Guatemala. Guess its a imported, no refineries here. But Im strictly on the shoe leather express when Im in Xela.

Maybe the low gas price is a ploy to get unsuspecting people to move to Kansas...

Went to the library this morning - still $2.98. Not a Black Friday Special - maybe I should wait until Tuesday. They may be running the special through Cyber Monday.

This afternoon I went to the library and noticed we were low on gas. I expected it being the day after Thanksgiving, that gas would have risen in order to gouge all those folks who had gone over the river or through the woods.

Was I ever surprised!

Gas in Kansas City, MO today is in the 2's! $2.989.

I thought I would probably never again see gas in the $2's.

How does that compare with the cost of gas in your area?
