But yeah my sister went out with a guy who lived in the Netherlands for about 5 years and that's how I found out about them charging $8 per liter for gas (and about $5 per liter for diesel, for some reason diesel is cheaper in Europe than it is in the US and I heard it's because the EU pushed harder for Diesel cars than the US did because of the overall fuel economy advantage diesel engines have over gasoline engines). 

And so I did the math and figured out that when you charge per liter (metric) for gas rather than per gallon like we do, you end up paying much more for gas, that's why I think that the US is holding out on converting to metric like everyone else in the world has.
