You guys realize that Americans are hopelessly spoiled with cheaper gas than anywhere else in the world, correct?
Here in Canada, where we get our gas from the same refineries as Americans do (for the most part) and we are paying on average $5.00US/gallon of regular. Premium is easily $6.00US/gallon. Prices are also spiking here, and in British Columbia regular gas right now is over $6.00US/gallon.
I'm an American living in Canada and I have struggled over the years to accept that everything here is likely 33% more expensive than in the US. Considering the dollar up here is worth, on average, 25% less we also have to deal with that.
Enjoy driving while we can and while gas is still very affordable. In another 50 years, if you ask me, it is highly unlikely that gas will be anywhere near affordable like it is now, and that's if we're even still allowed to operate internal combustion engines then.
