Europeans socialists paying $8 per gallon for gas

Today it was reported that Europenas are paying $8 per gallon for gas. Obviously they buy in liters but the article called it per gallon. The article cited that Europeans drivers pay the highest gas taxes in the world, with the tax on diesel in Britain accounting for 65% of the retail price. In Britain, the politicians are actually considering raising the taxes on fuel.

This article, to me, sums up how well socialism works. Lots of fools like to say that our capatalist system does not work as good as Europe's socialist ways. Once again, here is some proof.

Now lets all hear why Bush is at fault and why our prices are so high because Bush is somehow profiting from it.
