    Haha the old "it could be worse". Yeah, the kiwis have been paying high prices for years. I remember when I went to school there it was .99c/L. At least in NZ I could walk/bus everywhere I needed, I can't do that here. My fuel gauge is on empty right now...


    Thanks for the link

    I remember when I was a kid grandma used to exclaim when the petrol was 55c/L.

    I'm not looking forward to having a car again in this respect.
