think gas is expensive over here?

this is what motorists pay in the u.k.

(the price is in british pounds sterling, and it's per litre. you need roughly 4 liters to make one US gallon).

at about $1.97 to the pound, a gallon would cost you $7.88 when this photo was taken.

average price for unleaded is now 110.50p, making a gallon $8.70.

that's why the woman in the photo is filling up a small car she's probably already owned for a few years, and is not freaking out, doesn't own a gun, pays a lot more tax, and when she gets ill, she simply goes to her doctor, or hospital (she may have to wait a while) but everything is paid for. with no limits.
