    Heh. In my location, Norway (third largets oil-exporter in the world), the price is now around $9.5 per gallon in todays dollars. I think the price is about the same in most of western europe (according to my german friend, correct me if im wrong).

    Most people still drive. Im using the bicycle when its not freezing cold (march-october), and public transportation otherwise.

    On the other hand, the Norwegian electricity is quite cheap. Right now, the price is 6 cents per kWh.

    While most European countries have much higher gasoline prices ... isn't it also true that a large part of that price is in the form of taxes that are used, among other things, to make a large aount of high quality public transportation alternatives?

    If I could walk a few blocks from my home to catch a bus to work, and get to work in a half an hour or so (I live 12 minutes drive from work) at a cost a dollar or two, I would be glad to pay $9.50/gallon for my gas.

    $2.89 a couple days ago at Costco (Waterbury)!

    Anybody have any idea what home heating oil is going at? We've got the house temp turned down to try and conserve as much as we can and hold off on needing oil (or having to take less to re-fill the tank) until Jan or later!
