The government of Zimbabwe has effectively tripled the price of gas in their country. It's now Z$480/litre, or ~$8.41 in American money (currency conversion).

And for the metric-impaired, that works out to about $31.84/gallon (3.7854 litres to the gallon).

Think about that the next time you pay less than $2 for premium to fill up your hulking SUV.

  1. The government of Zimbabwe really needs to ship up and learn from the US. What they need to do is bomb the crap out of a country with endless oil resources, this way they can put their oil prices down a dollar or so.
