Gas prices are utterly crazy!

Last week, the average cost of gasoline in the United States was $3.84. In places like Los Angeles, the price has jumped to $4.23 a gallon. These increases are correlated to conflicts in Middle Eastern oil-producing nations.

These costs might feel like an all-time high, but that’s nothing compared to other places around the world. According to a November 2010 study by German research firm GTZ, some countries are paying as much as $9 a gallon.

At $7.08 a gallon, it might be worth leaving the Vespa in the garage and walking to get your espresso in Italy. In France, it’s probably better to ride your bike to the fromagerie – it’ll cost $7.49 per gallon to fuel your Peugeot.

If that makes you ill, just wait until you hear how much gas costs in Eritrea. Due to restrictions and frequent gas shortages, a gallon will is priced at $9.61, more than anywhere else in the world. That’s $127 to fill up your Honda Civic.
