I just calculated how much gas is costing me in Japan. Gas is currently 153 yen per liter at my local gas station. After several conversions and some calculating, that menas that gas costs me $5.07 US dollars per gallon! And I often drive between 1 and 2 hours a day! Oh, the humanity!
Dear friends and family in the US, please think of me paying over $5 per gallon when you feel the urge to complain about gas prices!
