pain at the petrol pump

Doesn't that price look good. $1.01!!!! If only that was per gallon. But look closely--it is per litre. This is $3.82 a gallon! (It was .65 when we came three years ago) I know that everyone is hurting with the petrol prices, but the thing we cannot understand is why the petrol on the American bases in Europe is more than the average in the states when we PAY NO TAXES ON IT!!!!!!!!!! I was told by the station manager that is the price of freedom. I guess freedom is more expensive over here!!!
