RE: [Groop]NOTICE OF REVOCATION OF INDEPENDENCE



By God, I've been hoisted on my own petard!  The Groo was mine.

I didn't know the actual conversion rate between litres and gallons, which
is why I was using approximations.  If 3.7 litres equals a gallon, then the
price is $4.662 to $4.995 per gallon.  I was equating one litre to one
quart in my original estimation.

The most common price I saw was 88 pence, so let's use that shall we?

88p * 1.5 = $1.32 per litre
$1.32 * 3.7 = $4.884 per gallon

Still rawther expensive, eh wot?

I always thought it was 3.7 litres/gallon which would put it at $3.11 to
$3.33 per gallon, but perhaps I Groo'd.

Eck-chewally,

I just returned from London, and the price there is 84 to 90 pence per
litre.  In American terms, that's approximately $1.26 to $1.35 per quart,
or $5.04 to $5.40 per gallon.

Ergo, $5.00 a gallon is roughly correct.  If we must convert, please
convert correctly.

And Americans complain about high gas prices.  Sheesh!
