still taxing the Bostonians by stealth

petrol

Just filled up the Audi S3. The price is $91.71 at the current exchange rate. So think of that next time you bomb someone George.

If I bought the same amount, in US Gallons in a Shell station in Dedham MA on Rt. 1 it would have been $28.84 (14.07 US Gallons * $2.05).

My former Bostonians threw tea into the harbour in protest. I’m going to get rid of the car and not pay stealth tax, ride the poor service of the London Underground or pay that £8 a day congestion charge/tax. I’ll ride my Ducati that costs about that £8 to fill the tank and ride all week.
