HA! I found out that a local bar serves $1 hamburgers on Wednesdays too!

Two for me, one for the G.F., tax and tip comes to $4.21 and all the popcorn one can stand.

I had an 8 cent/gallon coupon too.

I was just looking at Gasbuddy.com and I see a definite trend up, so I doubt I'll be stuck with more expensive gas in the vehicles than will be available in the next month or so.

The average wage in Warsaw is $7-$10/hour, which is at least 30% more than the rest of Poland. Gas prices are only 5%-10% higher in Warsaw (and other large cities) than in rural areas.

Interesting how that 2008 thread petered out before prices spiked in July. Also interesting how it segues seamlessly into 2011's escalating prices. I paid $4.65/gallon in July 2008 in Colorado. Yesterday I paid $3.65/gallon. If I'd visited the casino beforehand, it would have cost me well over $5/gallon.

3.75 for regular 4.00 for diesel here. I figure even at 5 a gallon my fuel costs are still about 10 cents per mile.

Fuel taxes. That's the reason my government doesn't even try to improve fuel economy. In fact, it's doing its best to increase fuel consumption:
While the rest of Europe is lowering speed limits on highways to 120km/h (Spain recently lowered to 110km/h), Poland increased the speed limit on highways (130 to 140km/h) and expressways (110 to 120km/h).
But wait, that's not all! The same new law states that the error margin of police radars is 10km/h, so anyone can go that much faster without getting a ticket. In other words, 150km/h on the highway, instead of Europe's 120.

Gotta add that to my repertoire.
