Oh my, don't you guys have it bad....*g*...currently, my tanks holds about 8 gallons and it costs £0.89 per litre that's slightly under $2.00...
Seriously, our government takes most of the price in taxes, pertrol is really at cost about £0.10 or slightly more but it's the major revenue here...
i.e...it's actually cheaper for me to buy a loaf of bread in my village at £0.63 per loaf than to go to the nearest supermarket 8 miles away and buy it for £0.18 per loaf...which I guess is a good thing as it means we support the village and all we have here is a co-op, 2 hairdressers, a doctor's, a brilliant school (which is why most families live here) a huge company that employs around 1400 (200 live in the village), we have a church, a theatre, superb walks, a windmill, a newsagent, a bakery and a funny kind emporium that sells candles and all sorts of wonderful old knick-knacks, a drapery (very up-market...lol) and sunsets you couldn't buy if you tried and of course there is me, and I go for less than £0.89 per litre (cause there's not much to me..*g*)...seriously, we also have a pre-school for under 3's and they are just so cute with there huge briefcases (to carry sandwiches) and they wave at you cause they are in love with life.. ...we have a butchers/game (but expensive) and a post office....what more could I want???????/
ok, I'll pretend I never heard you say, "well........."
Snoops can run in the fresh air, I get presents of mice, rats and birds...but also the sound of a robin singing sweetly or a blackbird....we're only small and my house was actually build on the old garage site, shame they never left the pertol connected but I'm only 1 hour from town (London) or to the north, I can be on the M6 headed Birmingham/Bristol in about 40 minutes...
How's that for demograhic info...LOL
ps, my bed is about 15 foot away and I'm headed there now with no petrol in my tank....thank heavens....
