Saw an article about how gas prices in the US have reached an average $4 a gallon. Oh man, when I get home, I'm going to work, then home, and never go anywhere else. Can't afford it.
I wondering if I can get groceries delivered?
Gas statoins are not common in the middle of Iasi. No room really, so it's not often I see one. But on one recent trek across town (walking... of course) I passed a station. The price was 5 something in the Romanian currency per liter.
Okay...so I did a quick calculation. Multiply the price by 4 to get the approximate price per gallon, then divide by 2.3 to get the price into US$.
If my calculation is correct, the price for gas here in Iasi Romania is $9 per gallon. WHAT? Okay... let me use a calculator to verify...okay...price x 4 / 2.3 ..... yep, about $9.
Geez...why is anyone in a car? I hope they all get 100 miles to the gallon (they don't) because that is just insane! The average Romanian makes $560 (US) per months, or 62 gallons of gas. A ride on the bus is about $1...if I lived here, I know what I'd be doing.
If gas gets that high at home, I'll start telecommuting from Lakeland. The only bright side about $4 per gallon gas...at least it's not $9 per gallon.
