Hi,

Norway is one of the larger producers of oil and gas in the world. However, we pay taxes on gas. Approx 5 USD per Gallon. At this moment USD is sky high in Norway. NOK 9,6 for 1 USD. The pump gas is NOK 27 some places for 1 liter, that's NOK 102,6 for 1 Gallon. Which translates to USD 10,7 per Gallon. The price has doubled in one year. If we deduct the Norwegian tax, we end up in approx USD 5,7 per Gallon - which translates approx to your prices. Does the states in US have tax on gas?

Cheeers, Toffen

Yes, in Michigan we pay gas taxes. Don't ask me exactly how much. I believe we are one of the highest in the country. It's purpose is to maintain the roads, but we also have some of the worst roads in the country.

Being in a fellow Mrs. Dem Gov state here in New York we, as you, have stupid high gas taxes and chit roads and bridges as well. Every day these Demochits have a new and better deal that is going to lower the cost of everything and make our lives just Mary Poppins like. Then less than 24 hours someone has stepped in from the other side and ruined the wonderful plan they were going to put in place to help us. Have no fear faithful subject, We are on the job.

Biden's comments come amid a stretch of record-high gas prices which the American Automobile Association says is "unprecedented."

These people have no interest in what's best for the American people. I know I'm preaching to the choir, it's just infuriating.
Just wait for the black outs when the summer heat hits and no one can charge their car. It ought to be a hoot.....

And yes, it's all by design.

Gas was $2.19 a gallon the day the pants ****ter occupied the house. It's now $4.49 just 16 months in

And in the end, JB and most of the other dipchits including myself will all be dead or broke by the time his fruition takes place.

Come to Chicago! LOL i think my fillings come loose every time i drive downtown! One of my step kids had 3 bent rims (all at different times) this past winters from potholes swallowing his tires up! They collect BIG TIME money from tolls and taxes yet theres always construction going on and the roads are still crap!

I had to replace the wheels on my wife's Callaway Corvette due to cracks and dents. I now have $5200 worth of scrap aluminum sitting in my garage. I'm trying to figure out how to fix them and get them refinished. I figure I will need to keep them as spares when the current wheels get dented or crack.

As a kid we used to take 94 from South Bend IN to 57 and head south, I think that people have made a career working on that stretch of road. It has NEVER been completed.
