Petrol differences

Monday, August 13 2007

So many people keep saying / complaining that San Francisco is one of the most expensive cities in the US. Well, it is.


SF 87 unleaded: $3.67 per gallon

Beverly Hills 87 unleaded: $2.89 per gallon

So it is cheaper to buy petrol in bloody Beverly Hills then downtown San Francisco. I am pissed off and I don’t even own a car (still reading the California Drivers handbook).

Any readers in the UK might wishfully wish that they could pay the equivalent of $3.67 per gallon as they pay 96.3 pence per litre which is about £3.64 per gallon which is about $7.32 per gallon. Did I do my math right? If only the metric system could rule the world 😉

This is the reason why Europeans don’t really drive huge big-ass trucks as is so common here the in US.

To me, it doesn’t make sense to drive such a big cars. It is further between places so Americans drives longer and then add on the fuel guzzling tanks driven … people could save a lot of money by driving more fuel economic cars. And then there is some added benefits like environment, less dependent on other less-then-friendly countries to provide the fuel, and general health of population cos of breathing less fumes.

Just sayin’ …
