Re: GAS PRICES IN GREENZ, COMPARED TO US

Economies of scale is one of them, taxes another. When you're producing / shipping millions of gallons of a product daily, it's a lot cheaper than producing a piddling amount like Grenada does. The ships that bring petroleum products to Grenada are tiny by world standards, so shipping costs for one are several times higher. Add to that taxes, which our governments like to impose on gas because it's easily collected.

Et ceteraah et ceteraah.

I just did a quick round number sum on gas prices in the UK..... $19 EC per Imperial gallon, or 4.55 litres which is a tad bigger than a US gallon. That was at the lower end of pricing in the UK.

Stop whining, it's not manly.   smile

Wherever you live, drone attacks on Saudi production facilities will result in a price spike.  It's coming...
