    Ouch! It's €1.30 a litre in southern Spain. I'm guessing you're paying £1.30, no?

    Well, if it goes to that here, you'll be paying $14-15.

    It'll never get that high because the street riots would happen at about $8.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That's what we said would happen when it reached €1/litre ($5/gallon) but that mark came and went and no one took to the barricades.
