    At $1 = 55php; 1 gal = 3.785 liter; 1 liter = 32php:

    3.785 liter/gal x 32 php = 121.12 php/gal

    121.12 php/gal / 55php/$1 = $2.20/gal

    Where I am right now, it is $2.47/gal, so it is more expensive here than there. Of course, in Kalifornia, gas probably has reached more tha $3.00/gal.

    WTF so it's really true, what going on with the US economy? There's no ASG, NPA, KMU, what's troubling this country. My wifey have been planning to get a new family car possibly a Suburban or Expedition was being considered, But now I'm changing it to a van Honda Odessy or we'll just wait and see if we really need a third car. Demmit... I hope ammo will still be cheap, at least :soap:

    San Jose is now $2.69/ gallon. The way things are, gas prices are cheaper at PI than CA. Refineries are at 100% capacity and that means demand is very high coupled with China and Indian economies running on all cylinders. I don't see it coming down.

    The guy who said that during martial law was made to do laps at Camp Aguinaldo riding a bicycle ;f ;f (or was this story about Ariel Ureta an urban legend?)

    Seriously, if the crisis escalates, alternative means of transportation will look really good. Bicycle days or Bicycle only areas aren't impossible as long as it applies to all. Then again, knowing our gov't officials who have a penchant for the latest and largest of SUV's I think I'm dreaming :)

    GAs prices will peak on Memorial day and hopefully come down after memorial day. Problem is how much will it come down and next year maybe 4 dollars/ gallon. We did it to ourselves, driving those ineffecient SUVs.

    If we could only harness all the hot air generated by our politicians, our search for an alternative energy source would be successful.

    Anyway, not to sound like an alarmist, but I just thought this passage from yesterday's Inquirer needs to be stressed.

    OMG dont buy it. it works by making the mixture lean. less air but it slowly destroys the engine.

    On can do the same thing by adjusting the mixture in carburated engines.

    One reason why diesel is less expensive in RP than gasoline is because it is a "socially sensitive" commodity. In other words, the government doesn't want to tick off the thousands of jeepney and bus operators and drivers by jacking up the price of diesel to its real level.

    Allegra,

    I don't think there is much of a problem going with a diesel-powered vehicle these days. The newest generation of Toyota diesels like the Innova and Fortuner are reputed to be very responsive and quiet, unlike the diesels of the past decade that power our jeepneys.

    Even my diesel Sedona, which isn't even a CRDI, is still going strong and emitting clean exhaust after almost 100,000-km and three+ years of service.
