    I knew that Europe usually paid more for gas but I wasn't aware it was that much! I really wish I lived closer to all of the places I need to get to.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong but don't also overseas they pay certain taxes with their gas, like I know in MO you get lower gas prices since we have to pay to license and title our vehicles when we buy them, but my understanding is that in other countries you don't have to pay to license and/or title your car but pay for it through gas instead?

    If that isn't the case then I have no idea where I got that then lol

    Oooh, or in some places they don't have to pay personal property tax but instead pay higher gas taxes to make up for it? Maybe thats what I'm thinking of. I believe that is in the US though, some states you don't have to pay personal property but pay higher gas prices.

    The taxes on gas have nothing to do with other fees in the state. High service/high tax states have high taxes.

    Im MA, for instance, you pay sales tax on the vehicle on purchase, annual excise tax to the town on the value of the vehicle, gas tax, property taxes, sales tax on the gas, and annual registration fees.

    In other news related to gas prices, the idiots in Congress are going to try to sue OPEC.....

    Guys, here's a hint......if the entity doesn't exist within your borders, you're going to have a tough time even finding a court to take the case.

    They walk among us............and in this case we've elected them to leadership.

    We need a New Broom ... the old one isn't working so well ...

    Example - My wondrous State of Ohio:

    The previous power trust had an Attorney General accused of all sorts of corruption,
    shady deals, favoritism ... who coasted along till the last election.

    Enter the New Guy - campaigned as the Straight Shooter who was gonna "Clean House"
    and be the Good Cop - root out all the *evil* in Ohio. He got elected.

    "New" AG Marc Dann lasted a year anna half ... till the Word got out that HE
    wasn't much better than his predecessor!
    Seems ole Marc had hired a few not-so-swifties as his right handers, personally ignored
    some sexual harassment situations in the ole AG's own office ...
    AND 'forgot' he was married with kids.

    Took a while, but we just got rid of HIM ... who's NEXT??

    And we wonder why gas prices are so high!

    Well, I know we have to pay the 'bollo' on the car every year by the end of January. I am pretty sure that is the same as licensing. And we had to pay some type of fee, I can't remember what it is called, when we bought the car. Also every 2 years we have to have the car put under revision to ensure it meets the EU standards for emissions (changing of all filters etc) and drivablity. We also have something called 'bollino blu' which is a tag that you have to have on your car to say it was emissions tested and is within the standard. The 'bollino blu' is different the revision though. Without a 'bollino blu' on your vehicle you cannot drive within the city. And if caught doing so you will be fined and/or the car can be impounded.

    In my area currently it is $1.25 a liter but we get a 3 cent discount at Safeway so only pay $1.22. Which works out to $4.57 a gallon. It costs about $125 to fill our suburban but luckily it is pretty good on gas and can go a fair distance on that compared to some suburbans.
