    Stumbled across these stats just now..

    Most expensive - Gas = Petrol

    Bogged Down
    Most expensive places to buy gas
    Rank Country Price/gal

    2. Eritrea $9.58
    3. Norway $8.73
    4. United Kingdom $8.38
    5. Netherlands $8.37
    6. Monaco $8.31
    7. Iceland $8.28
    8. Belgium $8.22
    9. France $8.07
    10. Germany $7.86

    Cheapest..

    Cruisin'
    Where gasoline is cheapest
    Rank Country Price/gal
    1. Venezuela 12 cents
    2. Iran 40 cents
    3. Saudi Arabia 45 cents
    4. Libya 50 cents

    Can that be right - Swaziland paying about R4.00 a litre at the moment ????
    Does an Arabian country own the Royal Swazi Sun or are all their cars running on ethonel from all that cane that they farm ?

    If you take taxes and levies out of our price we are probably only looking at about R4 per litre.

    Heres a question. I don't know who can remember this but in the days when Barend Du Plessis was minister of finance we paid additional tax for the building of Sasol so we could have cheaper fuel. What has happened to that?
