1.64 E per LITER of gas and 1.71 E per liter of diesel.

https://www.google.com/#hl=en&tbo=d&...w=1580&bih=691

1.64E is $2.13 per liter of gas and 1.71E is $2.25 per Diesel.
There are 3.78541 liters per US gallon.
That would be $8.06 a gallon of gas and $8.52 per gallon of diesel.
.
Just one of the many reasons we are now living over here! We have to go back to Portugal for 2 months in January, Including the gas, going to the store for a jug of milk is gonna cost $20 will have to use beer on my cornflakes

Hmmm...Turn the 5th wheel and truck into a tax break...

I'm not lucky enough to live close enough to my job to bike it!
But lucky enough that my employer pays for my fuel as part of my wages.
Some weeks I get a raise .... "this week"
Some weeks my salary is less "last week"
Lol

My boss pays for my fuel also, but it always ends up costing me in the end.
