The average retail price of gasoline in Japan hit its record all time high of 170 yen/liter (US$1.6) according to our direct and reliable news source: my in-laws! My FIL called me last weekend to ask about our life here in Dubai and the brought up gasoline question. Price of petrol here in the UAE is at 6.4 dirhams per gallon, equivalent will be around 50 yen/liter (US$0.47).
Japan’s petrol price is 3.5 times more expensive!
FIL wailed in shock and after picking up his jaw off the floor, said if we could send some petrol for Father’s day.
