Feeling the pain at the (American) pump?

For all of you who are complaining about the increasing gas prices in America, I found this lovely infographic that provides a little perspective. Unless you would like to move to Mexico or the United Arab Emirates (and I'm guessing that'd be a no), you actually have it pretty darn good - no, make that great - compared to the rest of the world.

So next time you're at the pump, pretend you're in Europe and do a quick calculation on what your total would be - then smile and do a little jig, because you're really only paying about half that. Lucky you!
