Here in Hong Kong it works out at about US$6.54 per gallon (US, liquid)!!

Half of that is government tax (!) and the other half goes to the thieving gypsies that sell the stuff ...

... here in Hong Kong every petrol station has the same price, no matter the company. Try telling me that they aren't running some sort of cartel and killing competition

Obviously we have to import everything we use here but if you go across the Border to [Mainland] China then it's less than half that price ... and they are importing all of their petrol, too! Go figure!

I remember when my father worked in Saudi Arabia in the early 1990's ... it was basically free and you only paid an 'administrative cost' for the guys doing the pumping ... !!!!!

Oh, well. Time to go burn some money! Brroom Brrooooooooom ..
That's easy, cause you are dealing with a bunch of communists!
