Most of us retired in Mexico use so little petrol that the expense is immaterial. I remember having a business lunch in France about 30 years ago. We were a group of 4 that all worked for the same huge US hi-tech company, we were Americans and French. The conversation wandered through many topics during the course of our long lunch. As we concluded our meal one of the French remarked that he was amazed that Americans wasted important social time discussing topics such as; the price of petrol, taxes, and the weather, all things beyond our control. Americans fixation with the price of gasoline has amazed me ever since. It matters so little.
