I'm paying $0.88/Litre right now. So times that by 3.78 and account for the exchange and you'll get $US/gallon.

than to be amazed

$2.29 per gallon in Connecticut. last time i bought fuel it was $2.59 and I was thrilled with that. It was a long drop from $4+.

I have not been watching the news so .... why the drop? What changed?

You are all so lucky here in Western NY its still $2.65. I payed $2.58 at a gas station yesterday but saw $2.54 on the way home. But it was Monday and most places have sales. I put $20 in last night and was just below full.

I thought I'd add a translation into US terms for my local prices. The pound is very weak right now, making our prices seem lower than usual compared to yours, but I think many of you will still be quite surprised.

Petrol - 95.9p/L = 363.0p/US gallon = $5.45/US gallon. Recently it was twice that when the pound was stronger and the dollar weaker.

Diesel - 108.9p/L = 412.2p/US gallon = $6.17/US gallon.

Petrol prices are pretty low right now but diesel hasn't come down as much as it ought to.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

wow Claire, you surprise me every time. I never knew the rate of petrol compare to USA. Though I am happy that the rate has come down because my car does not eat petrol, it drinks it!

I've been to Bath manier times and I know what you meant by tight roads, high hills, old buildings and loads of traffic. Specially when you come from A46 into Bath, near Morrisons, it's just a nightmare. Anytime of the day.

The University is on the hilltop, strangely twisted roads. Thank God buss stop is within the areas of University for students otherwise walking down the hill, up the hill would be very hard. Additionally the halls are quite tight as well even the en-suite ones. The library is situated on the top floor, though I don't like their computer setup. Seems really ancient unless they changed them now. The accommodation office is over the small tiny bridge and some people even have offices next to class rooms.

Oh have you seen Debenhams now going to open next to the train station? I think it's opening in 2009, it's about time that Debenhams finds its ways to Bath.

I like the tiny checkpoints made during Roman times near the fire brigade, it reminds me of the Roman history. The place is full of Roman buildings and I think next time when I go there I'll def take some photos .



If something's HARD to do, then its NOT worth doing!

That bit of the A46 is actually much easier than driving through town itself :)

The library actually covers all floors. I like our library - level 2 (which is the level of the main walkway and so on) is mainly full of sofas and cushions and plugs for your laptops. We always hang around in the library :)

The computer set-up is pretty good but I mainly use my laptop now. However, there are stations in most of the buildings outside lecture theatres, so we can check our email before lectures :)

What's wrong with offices next to lecture theatres? I'm not really sure what you're getting at xD The uni doesn't seem cramped to me. Compact, yes. Crammed in, nah.

I can't wait for the Debenhams. I miss the big Topshop (we only have a little one), La Senza and Debenhams that we have in Cardiff. The downside is all the building work causes chaos.

We have a pretty good bus system compared to Cardiff - in Cardiff you pretty much have to go into the centre of town to get out to anywhere else - but sometimes it's a drag. Students learn which buses are handiest and how to shave off travelling time so you can lie in later in the mornings xD

My bus pass cost £88.50 for ten weeks. At £3.10 for a return from my home, and using a lot more than just that one bus route, it's paid for itself twice already.
