i don't need no wheels, i don't need no gasoline, cos the wind that is blowing is blowing like a smoke machine
it's been a while since i've driven a car, and even longer since i filled one up. even so i'm pretty certain that 50 litres (or 49.99 - hey i tried) would fill up most tanks. now i don't know how much it costs to fill up your car in your country but i doubt it's as cheap as here in venezuela. 3.50 bolivares, which using the worst exchange rate i've ever found, works out at around 28p or 44 cents. that's not per litre... that's for all 50 of them. in some ways this is a positive thing - venezuela has a lot of oil, so it's good that it should be cheap for the citizens of the country. but why is everything else so expensive? things people need like food and drink. and why are there frequent power cuts in many towns and cities? it's a calculation that doesn't add up and a valid criticism of those in power that a country should be so rich in natural resources, espouse socialist principals, yet give so little back to the people. if only they could make petrol potable, although if they go down that route they should probably start with the water first.

Yeah - £65.50 here, but even worse it only takes me 260 miles (420km) in my gas-guzzler!!
