That Costs How Much!?!

Gassed up our car last weekend. At €1.82 per liter, the total was €64.00 to top up.
That’s US$82.00.
For a Ford Fiesta.
That’s US$8.82 per gallon!I remember having a craving one time for a Baja Fresh baja burrito.
Went online and tried searching for whatever Mexican food options there were in the city and found the prices ranging from €7.50 to €10.00.
That’s roughly US$10.00 to US$13.00.
For a burrito.
Jezus.

Just today, I stopped by Starbucks before work. Got my usual large (I refuse to say Venti) caffe mocha with whip. Mind that I don’t go often for one reason — cost: €4.80.
That’s over US$6.00 for coffee.
Chatted up the barista who turned out to be from the Philippines. If they have to import their baristas, it’s no wonder the prices are that high! Incredibly it’s even more expensive if you order one from the airport.No wonder the people here are so thin. It’s not from all the biking, everything is just too damn expensive.
