Sixteen dollars and two cents.
That's the price I paid to fill my gas tank from dangerously empty to overflowingly full today.
A month ago, right before we left Croatia, it cost us approximately $70 to fill up our new car.
In case you hadn't heard, the price of gas here in America has plumitted in the last few months from around $4 a gallon to under $2. The price I paid today was $1.74 a gallon. And if you're like me, you might be a little skeptical. Why the sudden drop? I haven't gotten a solid answer yet. The decrease in price seems to have come at a rather convenient time given our "Materialism is the reason for the season" attitude in America.
But the fact remains; fuel is significantly more expensive in Europe. Guess I'll have to prepare for culture shock at the gas station when we get back.
