You lucky bastard. I was celebrating yesterday because regular is down to $2.35.
>>
>>14220582

He's complaining about the price discrepancy of Unleaded to Plus to Premium. Typically the difference is around 10 cents a gallon, 30 cents is pretty insane.

However...

As >>14220574 said, driving is a privilege, not a right. If you don't like the gas price, don't fucking buy it.
>>
People who buy luxury vehicles are traditionally less price sensitive so they charge more because with gas prices in the shitter they have to try to make money somehow

>driving is a privilege, not a right.

No shit nigger. We are still allowed to complain about the price of gas though.
>>
Holy shit, I'm in North Queensland and I thought $1.40/L was bad. Then again, I don't know the litre-to-gallon conversion, nor the current AUD-to-USD conversion.

Down south though it was like $1.19/L for Unleaded 91, and like $1.30 or so for Premium 98.
>>
>>14220651
4 liters to 1 gallon (roughly).
>>
>>14220603
>price gouging of a publicly traded commodity is also illegal
>children

However OP is gay. I'm more pissed bout the cash/credit difference in general. Where I live it's like $.10-$.20 difference per gallon. MUCH more than the 2% processing fee.
>>
>>14220658
Ok, cool. I'm way to lazy to figure out the AUD/L-to-USD/Gal to see who's better off, though.
>>
>>14220677
>i don't know what price gouging is

Dummy. If it's a commodity, you can go across the street and get it at its true market value.
>>
Here in Edmonton, Canada about $.74/L

I once got exactly 40.000 gallons for 50.000 dollars. It was the greatest time of my entire year. I took a picture, but that phone broke and I have no way to prove it to anyone.

So what about the 40 cents in OP's pic?

Liter is the American spelling. He's clearly Aussie, same as me. It's Litre here.
>>
>>14221114
>Mfw Aussie complains about $1.30/litre.

In NZ its $2.02/litre for 98 octane...
$2/litre for e10 98

your own fault breh

>>14221114
> tfw north queensland 98 is like $1.50+ per litre
>>
>>14220550
because premium sells less than regular and thus the market hasn't caught up.

Also because the market has a lot of low-octane crude (oil sands, etc) in it. High octane gas is easier to refine from good 'ol Saudi sweet oil, but the expansion of alternative American drilling markets has resulted in more common and available low-octane crude base.

but I feel your pain broheim. 1.559 for regular today at the shell, 2.499 for VPOWAHNITRROOOOOOOOOOOOOO

What kind of cuck talk is that?
>>
>>14221219
Why should it be a right to get behind the controls of a one and a half ton metal death machine that travels at speeds our soft, squishy, fleshy bodies were never meant to travel at?

Look at the quality of drivers on the roads as it is.

It's a God damn right and you're delusional or a NEET if you think otherwise
>>
>>14221264
Why is that? It's a privilege - something to be taken away if it turns out you're unfit to drive.
>>
>>14220550
This sucks. Because of this, the cost of driving my 29mpg miata costs almost as much as driving my shitty 19mpg Ranger.
>>
>>14221290
back when gas was peaking at almost $5 it was cheaper to drive my 95 f350 dually than my 30mpg shitbox
>>
>>14220632
Do you understand the difference between complaining and questioning the legality of something?
>>
>>14221270
Yeah, it's my privilege though. I ain't going to take my own privilege away. I earned it, and I don't live with my parents no more!
>>
Driving isn't a privilege its a RIGHT
>>
>>14221333
It's not a right. Otherwise you would be provided with a car, insurance, and money for upkeep by the government. It's privilege you earn for yourself.
>>
>>14221328
It's a privilege given to you by whatever government office handles your driver's license.

The government giveth you the privilege to drive, and if you can't drive to an acceptable standard, the government taketh away the privilege to drive. Well, the privilege to drive LEGALLY. Of course it's possible to drive unlicensed.
>>
>>14221359
The government can't give me my own privileges.
>>
>>14221349
>Otherwise you would be provided with a car, insurance, and money for upkeep by the government.
That's not the definition of a right. It's a convention you were born into, and have accepted, but it's not how birthrights work. The 'government' isn't your parent or guardian, or God delegating what non-criminal behaviours you can exercise.
>>
>>14221377
That's exactly what they do, though. It's hard to say 'They can't do that', when that's what already happens.

I mean, the alternative is that it's a right...that can be removed whenever the government deems it necessary.
>>
>>14221403
>Give up all your rights to me so that I may be superior to you
>>
>>14221519
I don't even know what you're getting at by this point. I'm not saying it's the ideal system, I'm saying it's the system that's in place - the government is the one who says who can and cannot legally drive. So it's either a privilege they hand out, or a right that can be denied at any time.
>>
>>14221290
if you're putting premium in a miata, you are wasting your money

Gotta get that 2hp.

>>14221378
Great, enjoy your right to drive in circles in your backyard then. It turns into a privilege as soon as you enter public roads.

>>14221149
In the US I havent seen 98 octane for awhile, the 93 is "premium" around me

To get 93 octane for 1.94/gallon it must be some supreme southern shithole, so no.
>>
Try SoCal gas prices, I hate all of you, bitching about paying 2.4$ for premium, as I have to pay 3 dollars if I just want the lowest octane, which I need the highest for my car to run
