I have been wanting to write about gas prices for a while, but keep forgetting…
Kuwait’s main source of income is it’s oil and oil is very cheap here! I never really thought of how cheap until we filled up our tank last week. We drive a GMC Acadia here and I think the fuel capacity is 23 gallons (88 liters). Last week we had to put in a full tank and only paid 5.5KD, that’s $19!! ONLY $19!!!!!! I could not get over that!
My parents visited us in Toronto two years ago and we rented a GMC Acadia and I remember filling up our tank for close to $100 every time, and cringing at how much we spent and thinking there goes a pair of shoes!
Here we fill up our tank every 5 days and don’t give a second thought about filling up our tank. At least there’s a plus side to moving here.. Don’t have to worry about gas!
