Yesterday I went out to put gasoline in the car. It was full-tank last Saturday when M left for Japan (for a business trip) but since I had been doing so many errands here and there, the tank is half-empty. I don’t want to be too busy driving to drop by a petrol station and end up pushing the car home so I drove to the petrol station.
Then it struck me: I do not know the kind of petrol we use!!
I had been just a spectator in the passenger seat all this time. I never even bothered to ask my husband how much gas or the type of gas the car consumes. I was stumped. The station boy told me I can put either Super Extreme or Extra Special; funny names, I know and too redundant, don’t you think?
He suggested Super Extreme and it costs US$1.8 per gallon. The Extra Special, which I learned later was the type that M always fill the car with was a little bit cheaper at US$1.5 per gallon.
(Actually, we can use whichever as long as it is not diesel)
Anyhow, I am surprised though at how cheap the petrol is here. I guess this is one of the perks in living in an petroleum producing country but then I don’t know the price in other countries aside from Japan.
Is it cheaper in your place?
