It's a cool $1.40 or so a litre (very roughly 1 quart)average in West Oz. Diesel's about 10 cents more. Real nice shot of a classic old pump..

Mobil's disappeared off the scene in West Oz, except for their oils.

Yes Henry is a cool old building. In Germany: litres is about 1.50 euros.

Gasoline here in Texas is running $2.95 a Gallon right now. It is a pretty good price compaired to a lot of places. We are lucky that a lot of oil and gas is produced and refined here.

Thanks for the compliment on the pic'. :-)

Hi Karin, I remember when I was young watching the balls in the round glass at the top spin around and around. :-))

Yes Chriss, Gas pumps have changed a lot from the time these were build. I was a maintinence man for newer models for a while. They are full of computers now and can be so much trouble sometimes when not working right. Sometimes I wish they were still the old mechanicle type. :-/
