I recently moved to Ireland from the west coast of the United States. I am posting photos of the wild and wonderful things I encounter.

Gas per liter
So in Ireland they use this funny thing called the metric system. I know, I know. Crazy, right? They even have different words for things. In Ireland you don't stop to get gas and a bag of potato chips; you stop for petrol and crisps. Anyway, petrol costs 1.53 euro per litre. One-fifty-three sounds pretty reasonable, right?
At 3.79 L per gallon, and 1.43 dollars per euro, that's $8.29per gallon! Holy petroleum, Batman!
