University won't issue you with a parking permit for on campus if you're an undergraduate living within the BA1 and BA2 postcodes - which extend for a long way outside Bath. Council won't issue you a parking permit for outside your house if you live within a parking-permit zone if you're a student. People own cars, sure, but very few actually use them to get to and from uni. Ever been to Bath? The traffic is truly horrific. I have - no exaggeration - gone two miles in an hour and a half, and another four miles in the next half-hour.

We students basically have to rely entirely on buses. And our campus is situated out of town atop a very long, very steep, rather infamous hill.

I do have to admit that a lot of our south-east Asian students (of whom there are many) are absolutely loaded xD We're all jealous. They eat out loads and go on many trips. I should point out that eating out in the UK is way more expensive than it is in the US and is, for most people, very much a 'special occasion' thing.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

I had a car as a student... I just worked 40hrs a week on top of full-time school to afford it. Anyway, gas in Olds (between Calgary and Edmonton) is 0.84/L... which is 1/4 a gallon I think? I walk 3km to work instead of drive so I can save gas.

Brain washing??

Like making you think 1.87 is cheap??

That's how I feel about our gas anyway..2.09 is cheap..I remember when that was outrageous. I wish it were back to somewhere around $1. HAH. keep dreamin'....:roll:

I'll settle for $1.75 though..I could prolly deal with that.
