Thumbs down England's prices

Yeah petrol in england is outrageous, but nothing like as bad as it used to be. The sneaky bastards have been pushing up the price of diesel very discreetly recently. Most things in England are more expensive than other countries, but we manage. Plus, when we go abroad everything seems really cheap and we spend spend spend. One of the worst things is car insurance for 17 year olds. When i finally turn 17 i can drive, but i can guarantee that my insurance will be at least 1500, which is, um...$2,147.05 -

WoW Five bucks a gallon. We thought $2.00 a gallon was bad. No wonder I see so many small cars there on film.

Petrol here isn't as bad- but it is still around 3.50 Euros per gallon for 98 Octane Diesel is still cheap though.


I miss the NZ$1 a litre in NZ
