So, gas around my house is about $3.90 a gallon. This
article parrots what I've been hearing from Europeans for the last 18
months, that they wish they had it so good: the article says that gas prices
in the Uk are about $11.50 per American gallon! But what's even more
stunning is that it casually remarks that taxes and fees make up about 70%
of the price of fuel in the UK and France. What that means is that if not
for the taxes fuel in the UK would cost $3.45 per American gallon!.
That is NOT a small difference. Add on a small margin for more-reasonable
taxes and fees and the Brits would be paying about what we are. If their
prices are so bad, they have only their government to blame.
