    *Tries to do some math*

    So if I count with 1.70 Swiss Francs per liter, then 1 gallon would cost around 6.50 Swiss Francs.
    And that would be 6.20 USD.

    Ummm, is that correct
    My brain is suffering from my flu
    6.20!!!!!??????? EXPENSIVE!!!!!! the car gets lik 14 mpg. literaly lol ,
    So glad to be back.

    In the Netherlands

    One liter gasoline costs: 1,661 Euro = 6.279 Euro per gallon = $ 9.73 per gallon
    One liter Diesel costs: 1.427 Euro = 5.394 Euro per gallon = $ 8.36 per gallon

    I hope I calculated this correctly.

    Really crazy

    Another problem along with that is that due to the much higher transport costs also food, clothes etc. are also getting much more expensive

    I have heard about Europeans having to pay such high prices that it almost seems funny that we Americans are complaining about it. But then that leads me to ask, what is the average income there, and what is the minimum wage for your countries? As that comes into play as well. For example, minimum wage here is $5.75 (if I remember correctly.) That's not much, when gas in my area is ranging from $4.59 - $4.69 per gallon.

    Just curious to see what the difference is with the minimum wage factored in. I read somewhere that some countries in Europe have a minimum wage of almost $20/hour.

    EDIT @ Mistery: Same thing is happening here with all costs of living: travel, food, clothes, etc.

    Well, we don't have any minimal wages defined by a law (yet).
    But many branches have some guidelines, or even a rule for a minimal wage within that branch.

    From what I know, a minimal wage in practice (if not an illegal job where people get completely abused) is around 14 Swiss Francs, which is meanwhile almost the same amount in USD (for the conversion I mean )

    I think these things are very complex, and almost impossible to compare.
    Even if we would know the minimal wage, we didn't count other usual costs for e.g. an apartment or food - which can also differ very much from country to country even within Europe.

    But I think we all can agree that gas is getting very expensive, so that more and more people are having huge problems to get some - and that the transport costs make food and other things also too expensive for the poor people - even in so called "rich" countries.

    Ah.....interesting. And yeah, it's very true about the cost of living expenses and such. I still wish we could have electric vehicles back on the market. That would be nice. No using gasoline at all.
