On Petrol (or "gas" as its called here)

People here are getting their knickers in a knot because petrol prices are over $3 a gallon, and are expected to rise to as much as $4 a gallon in the next few weeks. Heres what I say.

Suck it up.
Petrol in NZ is already well over $US4 a gallon, and has been for some time.

Put down the car keys and step away from the SUV.
It might even be good for you.
