A gallon is 3.875 litres
So a gallon costs £4.96
£4.96 at today's median conversion rate of 1.58 is $7.85
We are paying $7.85 for a gallon of gas
I drive about 85 miles daily for work and have come to love the fast lane. Keep me away from all those plodding folks, dithering between lanes.. let me sit in the fast lane and GO. Of course it means I really gotta keep my foot in it, about 80mph regularly, though I've caught myself at 90.

I only hit 80 twice on my way home tonight. Yay me
