1 litre of petrol costs soon over 2.00€ in Finland.

So no crying in the US.

We call it gas over here in the states, but its still to much.

Now I don't know any translations between Euros and Dollars, but here is our price. (estimate)

Last I checked, it was 3.82 a gallon here in Wisconsin, and I last checked on Friday, so that is definately changed by now.

In Los Angeles, you can still find gas stations with $3.9# a gallon, but usually it's around $4.1#.

Does anyone know the reason (Please don't say Iraq War without some actually reasonable facts) for the prices to start going up?

Nvm I did my calculations wrong.

But anyways.. My family gladly would pay the extra money 'cause there's less people on the road. Even though that money is coming out of my college funds xD.
 

Seb!

1) A higher demand for oil caused by a huge boom in automobiles.

2) A shortage of oil, caused by instability in the Middle East.

3) The price of crude rose dramatically, and instead of cutting the ridiculous profits, oil companies and their CEO's simply raised the prices. This is possible because gasoline is a necessity.

4) The occupation of Iraq ended the oil instability and shortage for a very short period, causing the supply to meet the huge demand.

5) The administration reduced regulation on the market in terms of price gauging and monopolies.

6) Oil company profits and CEO wages skyrocketed.

The fact that Bush's campaign donations were largely from oil companies, and the fact that Bush himself used to own oil companies may or may not be involved..

this have effect on other things too

faroe island fishing trawlers are set on standby because of the prices it's just not worth it, and they won't go fishing before the fish prices raise or the gas prices degrease.

that will effect in a big loss of fish in scandinavia! :eek:
