Just filled up my truck. $1.03 a gallon. Is this real life /biz/?
still fucking 3.90 because oligarchy where I live
Even news here is like wtf
It's 91 here in NM
having a nice car is suffering
For some reason our government here in Perth makes us pay a way higher GST (Goods and services tax) than any other state.
I recently landed this FIFO gig which has taken away about 80% of my expenses but god damn my major expense when I come home is still fuel and I am just shocked that the price has only dropped 20 cents the last 6 months.
With all the workers being laid off lately as well I am pretty confused as to why they would raise it to 15%.
They recently fired around 2000 people from my company in the last 2 months and the town I work in has become a ghost town.
>TFW I'll probably be next
>Ive heard Cali has like a 3$ tax on gas because muh environment.
>dont forget Diesel is banned there too
Kek'd. Crossing the border from Arizona to California, literally going to a gas station 2 miles down the road, adds somewhere between $.50 to $1 per gallon, and I can guarantee that's all tax. And diesel isn't banned, it's just much more expensive than regular.
That said I'm getting the fuck out of this state as soon as I'm done with school. Dealing with the prices and taxes is a huge turnoff.
I'll come back when I'm rich enough to not pay taxes.
