As you know the price of gas (petrol) is becoming a very big issue around the world.  I lived in Qatar off and on and the price of gas was 20 cents of liter.  That was quite reasonable.  Here in Montreal it is about 1,05$ a liter.  I have to fill up the car once a week and it usually costs 60,00$ a week.  Per month we are looking at 240,00$ to get the car running.  Add to this, the expense of running a second car for my daughters.  That is another 200,00$.  We have been seriously looking at electrical cars.  But for now there does not seem to be a model that is completely reliable.  Finding cash to run cars these days has become a real challenge for some.  My friend Jayne sent me this last week:

Price of gas in France

A thief in  Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre.

After  careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings, and made it safely to his van.
However, he was captured only two streets
 away when his van ran out of gas.

When asked how he could mastermind such a  crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, 'Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings.'

I had no Monet


to buy Degas

to make the Van Gogh
