The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Here in Germany you'd easily pay 180 for that.

    In Chicago it was over $4.50 this past weekend. And I remember everyone complaining when he hit over $2 per gallon after 9/11.

    In my opinion you guys are lucky for at least experiencing low gas prices. I got my license this year and I still take the bus to school and only drive on weekends pretty much because it is so high. Never going to get a chance to drive around just for fun because it costs so much.

    We're paying $1.29 / litre, which comes out to $4.88 / gallon. AND it's expected to rise to $1.50 / litre. Gas is stupid.

    I feel your pain, but think about this and tell me it isn't F'd up.

    I started driving in...1996? I think.

    Gas about around $1 a gallon.

    In 2003 (7 years later), it had started to spike badly, but I could still buy it where I lived in Kentucky for $1.30. It was $1.70 here in WV, though, but we're at the top end of the national spectrum due our ridiculous gas tax.

    Now, 5 years later, it's over $4 here.

    Something is very wrong. Those aren't gradual, economic increases..those are GOUGES.

    I'm REALLY lucky to have positioned myself with my job 3 minutes away, a large grocery store 3 blocks away, my girlfriend 3 minutes away, and all my local food an entertainment within 5 minutes. I burn a 16 gallon tank about every 2 weeks. Still, I spend $60 to fill up a HYUNDAI. I'm thinking about riding my bike to work, but I'm not real keen on leaving there after dark and riding through some neighborhoods.

    I'm definitely going hybrid next time. Hopefully, they'll have them better-priced and the bugs will be worked out by the time I'm ready to purchase one.

    I'm very lucky I was saddled with a car that was pretty good on gas. Pontiac grand am baby. Now it costs me $40-$45 to fill up. When I stated driving I remember it being $25 to fill up. Yes it has literally doubled and I started driving 5 years ago. I know $45 isn't $100 like hate's is but it still sucks that I and everyone else has to double there gas budget or just stay in more often.

    last night I caught Bill O'Reilly yelling about how ridiculous oil prices are. And for once I actually agreed with him.

    I also have a pretty economical car. Around $50 to fill up. Gets me roughly 420 miles per tank. Plus I don't have to drive that much.

    Someone seriously needs to make a ****en pie chart up to show that all you people in other countrys need to stop bitching. Our gas has gone up exponentially compared to yours, so don't throw whats yours is now vs what ours is now because when I started driving gas was still under $2 a gallon and it was about 3.5-4 years ago. (didn't start driving till i was about 18).

    Ask and you shall recieve.

    Not a pie chart but a good read, over a year old but you get the tax numbers.

    Netherlands $6.73 Tax $4.12 Thatís a 158 percent tax.
    France $5.80 Tax $3.65
