Avoid getting scammed at the gas station
« on: November 25, 2021, 05:51:10 PM »
This has been a thing in NorCal with gas prices getting above $5/gallon.

"[Popes Pius VI through Pius XII] have resisted the union of the Church with the [French] Revolution; it is an adulterous union and from such a union only bastards can come. The rite of the new mass is a bastard rite, the sacraments are bastard sacraments. We no longer know if they are sacraments which give grace or do not give it. The priests coming out of the seminaries are bastard priests, who do not know what they are."
(Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, An Open Letter to Confused Catholics [Fowler Wright Books, Ltd., for the Society of St. Pius X in 1986], p. 116)

That's insane. The UK has inflation too? I thought it was just a Trump/Biden thing in the USA.

If gas was $7.71/gallon in the USA there would be riots.

Google is wrong then.

Petrol is 1.48 per litre.  Multiply by 3.785 to convert litres to a US Gallon.  That equals 5.64

Now convert to dollars at today's spot rate equals.  $7.51 per US Gallon

Groggy should go to Moscow.
I don't need to because I drive an electric car and am quite happy with it. I would assume that Russia's gas prices are low because Russia is a typical sh*thole petro nation that subsidizes it to prevent the masses from being too angry with the government. It's a common thing for those types of countries.

Max. Look up those 2 links I sent. Is CNN wrong as well?
I quoted the London price in US$ so he could compare it to his price.

I think you mean 3.785 or 3.78541 if you want to be more accurate.  ;)

Luck you.
I believe California has got some shitholes. I can't remember the names though.
One of the reasons people are leaving I suppose.

Sure, Tenderloin in San Francisco, Oakland, and Richmond, to name a few.
