At the Petrol Pump


Stopped to fill Petrol/Gas. Rarely will you find pumps that are too crowded. Petrol is 0.60 fils per litre. That comes to US$. 0.219 / UK GBP 0.109 / Indian Rs.8.70. Yup! It's pretty cheap in the land of black gold!

Looks the same here, price is just a wee bit higher though.

Compared to Mumbai it looks very clean and spacious.

I have rented cars in the UK a few times and was often puzzled by the Q8 gas/petrol stations. Finally it got through to me - I thought it was very clever. We pay +/- $3 a US gallon, slightly less than 4 liters and it is at least twice that in Britain.

Here in Inverness gas is $3.09 /gallon...unbelievable where you are! Nice shot.

I need to move to Kuwait! Gas is pretty high here, yet our gas stations are always pretty crowded.

Gas is $3 and up here this weekend...went up again yesterday.

wow, that is cheap! Ours has just gone up to US$1 per litre, 5 x as much as yours! On the plus side, at least we can get it, spare a thought for the poor Zimbabweans who queue for days for a tankful, and literally wait at the bank for several days to draw enough cash to pay for that tank, as cash is now rationed!! (They are limited to 50 million Zim$ a day (equivalent to about 7US$), and a loaf of bread is Z$800000!!!!

Indeed it is unbelievably cheap.
I remember seeing footage of US troops going into Kuwait during the first gulf war (Desert Storm) and it was quite surprising to see that they would poke a hole in the ground (marsh) and a flame would shoot up. That area has so much gas. Oil wells burned for months...

Is water more expensive there? I am not joking. Since I perceive Kuwait as a desert country, I dont know what is the source of water. Either it must be imported or desalinated, both of which must be expensive.

What is the robe/gown that the man is wearing called? Once in a while I see people here wearing something like that but slightly shorter in length.

Do the petrol pumps also have car washes in/near them?

Sorry about so many questions.

Hi, I'm delighted to answer your questions Hyderabad. Please don't apologise.

We have Iraq above on one side and Saudi above on the other side. So Kuwait is never short of oil as a lot of it flows DOWN to Kuwait.

Water is more than double the price of petrol. Petrol is Rs.8 per litre and water is Rs.22 for 1.5 litres.

The robe the men wear are called, "Disdasha's". The cloth on the head is called the, "Gotra." In winter, they wear coloured Disdasha's. The cloth is thicker and mostly made of wool as it's very chilly here this time of the year.

The petrol pumps don't have car washes. There are car washes all over the place and it costs approx. Rs. 300 to have your car washed. I heard, in London, it costs much, much more. They wash the car inside, outside, put grease and make it very presentable.

Thank you for visiting mhy blog.

I definitely want to read a bit more soon. By the way, rather good design you have here, but don’t you think it should be changed once in a few months?

I like your style, the fact that your site is a little bit different makes it so interesting, I get fed up of seeing same-old-same-old all of the time.
