It cost $50.76 to buy 13.874 gallons of gas this morning. That's the most I have ever paid for gas: $3.659 per gallon.

How much per year do you pay for health insurance? :-)

Posted by: Brian at May 3, 2006 06:37 PM

Well I pay approx $8,000 in 'National Insurance' - which provides my state health cover and the princly sum of approx $180 per week pension once I reach 67 years of age!

On top of that my employer pays approx $2,000 per year for my private health insurance - on which I then pay a further $800 per year income tax!!!

Plus as I drive approx 40,000 mile per year I pay a disproportionate amount in fuel tax (tax accounts for approx 85% of the cost of fuel here!)
