    One imperial gallon is equivalent to approximately 1.2 U.S. liquid gallons, so as I said we being ripped.

    The U.S. liquid gallon is defined as 231 cubic inches and equates to approximately 3.785 litres.

    We are paying about $1.97/liter for Super in Chch, $1.78/liter for Regular.

    A barrel, 50 Gallons crude oil, is worth about a $US1 at the moment.

    Yes kenj, a gallon, but they produce the stuff and also have the clout to have the Suardies give them a cheaper deal than little old NZ.

    U.S. Oil Prices Fall Below Zero For The First Time In History

    April 21, 20205:02 AM ET

    Oil prices went into negative territory on Monday. That means traders were paying money to get people to accept oil in May. It's a sign of just how imbalanced the global oil markets are.

    Wait until worldwide countries want re-financing, who has all the monies to lend out, uh oh, CCP of course.

    Presume that's where NZ is going to borrow and we will be like the two SA nations who are going to have to foreclose on their current loans.

    Several other countries have already done so and what do you know China has put in shipping ports, Sri Lanka springs to mind.

    Watch out USA and the 15 trillion bonds China holds.

    Still think the world should take China to court and charge them plenty in compensation, weren't the other SARS, etc from China as well, did anyone get monies from China for those.

    "Just saying" and thanks to wai for that one.

    Look at the prices of petrol in Aus.

    79c per litre in some places.

    Don't forget the Tax, GST, & ACC, they are the main components!

    Remove all those and the price will be reasonable.

    Who to blame? The politicians!
