Stop complaining! We are paying $6.54NZD per gallon down here. That's $4.57 roughly in US pesos per gallon.

And 43% of that is Government taxation. You don't seem to care that Microsoft and Apple are making record profits, why pick on the oil companies. You do realise that you guys consume 50% of the worlds oil supply.

Thought about cutting down?

But, I'm not complaining about the price of petrol, ours is still one of the cheapest countries for fuel in the world.

Just as you consume more fuel per capita than any other country, you also kill more people with guns per capita. Ever wondered why?

Our claim to fame, Great movies, the highest numbers of sheep and Ferrari's per capita in the world.

I'm happy down here thanks.

You have three choices, stand behind our troops, grab a gun and toe the line with our troops, or stand in front of them, they can use the extra armor.

Yea, he's oredered them 3 other times in the last 9 mos and they couldn't find anything wrong (imagine that) High prices aren't directly his fault but investigating possible price fixing and gouging is. But like you I highly doubt they'll find anything...

Over here its Brunei dollar $0.55 cts per liter (RON 97) and $0.53 cts (RON 95 (?))

How's dat for cheap? Its a starnge custom here ppl dont buy gas by the liter, they just pull up and say $10.00, $20.00, $5.00 etc for green gas (Ron 97) or red (Ron 95)

Prices have not changed in recent memory. So much so that gas smuggling is common round here...
