hey Peter, what are the gas prices there converted to USD?
I was talking to a friend the other day and mentioned how expensive you said it was last time you were here when gas prices were cheaper... just wondered if the prices there have went up so much as well.
Also, do you know Michael Moorcock?

Hi there,

I did have a formula worked out for the petrol gas prices but I don't know where it is right now. It's about 81 pence per litre at the cheapest places last time I checked.

Michael Moorcock ... don't think so ... but I am brain dead :) Sounds like it might be a rude name ;)

Ok, I did some conversion from liter to gallon then currency.. I came up with about 4.82 a gallon? Does that sound right to you?
Have the gas prices there rose since the Iraq stuff? Here it's like $2 a gallon now when I think last time you were out I was bitching cause it was something like 1.50 gallon...
Also, Michael Moorcock is an author.. wrote about Elric if that helps? Fantasy type writing.
He's from England so I thought you may have heard of him.. if you ever get a chance to go to a book signing of his, see if you can't get me some autographed copies of a book or something.. he's got quite the following here in the states.

Thanks for the quotes. I still miss Reagan though -- for all that says about Bush...
