Michigan puts 40cents per gallon on top - which means that 1 gal comes to us at about 90 cents - or in other words - close to a 50% tax -- CALL the BRITS - IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER TEA PARTY!!! I guess No Cal tags about a 90% tax then?? Sorry to hear that.. -t.

: : I never understood how come we get all uppity about gas prices -- lets do the numbers for a minute -- cheap gas 1.00/gal expensive gas 1.30 /gal. Lets see - 10000 miles per year on the ///M (high for me) @ 20 miles/gal avg -- thats 500 gallons of gas per year - or $150.00 per year difference between 'cheap' and 'expensive'. That's about $12.50 more per month you pay for the expensive gas. Now auto insurance - that's a different story!! :-) -t.
