Or increasing extraction and production costs due to environmental and safety regulations mandated by US government and voters, higher taxes, and variations in supply and demand.

Lets just remember how much tax there is on gasoline in other countries in order to put it in perspective. Because that really scares me... :-)

Our ACCC has been investigating collusion and price fixing petrol goes down on mondays anywhere as low as $5.90 a gallon and on thursday night goes up to $6.50 a gallon again
LP gas comes out of the ground in Australia at 2 cents a litre we sell it to china and the chinese consumer pay around 19 cents a litre in australia pay 79 cents a litre there are approx 4.5 litres in a gallon
If you think that is stiff a three bedroom house no garage average west australian median is $475.000 average median for a 5x2 bath 3 car garage 1 million dollars plus
if you are on the coast double that amount for both

Having just looked up the Australian dollar, it is $1.01 US. I can make you a better deal in Colorado.

Just out of curiosity, what's the average income there? It's pretty tough to buy a $500,000 home on $40,000 yr income..

Diesel at $3.72 a gallon!

Diesel was $3.82 9/10 a gallon in Livermore, California this morning. We got another .10 off with our discount card, so $3.72 9/10. We only wish we were wearing outfits made out of sponges!
