Hi there @Dennis3450 from Georgia,
I just refuse to fill up my car. I put the same cost of fuel there as I used to fill it up with. That was about £65 (about $80). Now I get about 2/3 of a tank for the same price so I just pretend that my car gets less MPG. LOL.
Seriously, the GBP is about $1.25 today for one Pound. We get 20% more litres to our “British” gallon than you do in the USA, but we are metered at the pump in litres. On 30May22, UK diesel was £1.82 per litre, or £6.89 per US liquid gallon (3.785 litres). The exchange rate GBP to USD today is $1.26, so that is $8.68 per US gallon. Only just about twice the price of Georgia.
The USA has always had lower consumption taxes than Europe, and that accounts for the resilience of the US despite the “money printer goes whhhhiiiirrrrrrrr” attitude of your governments at the time.
I am right now trying to figure out who’s money printers have a higher pitch of frequency - UK, EUR or USA. By the look of our house prices since six months ago, I’d say ours is going a bit faster, and Rishi and Boris will probably “turn it up to 11” like Spinal Tap to stay in power just a few weeks longer.
