Sorry, but gotta pull you up on this one.
Unless you actually get in the Price Parity here, its not much of a chart.

we gotta multiply the price by how much each dollar buys in that place - and THEN we'll have a decent idea of how much who's paying.

why dont we have hybrid cars here.. then our petrol requirement would reduce, and gas can become cheaper for us motorcycle riders who do want to have fun and not just max out on mileage..
