    Something odd here. When I lived in Japan - late 90s, gas was about 3 times what it was in the U.S. They charge by the litre there.

    I just checked gas prices in Japan - it's right around $4.25 a gallon - unless I got a bad link. That's about what they're getting in metro D.C.

    WTF???

    Japan/Europe always higher than U.S. Now we're paying what they're paying?

    Insanity...
