What European Cars and U.S. Pigs Have in Common

Recently I spent a week in London and everywhere I went I noticed how cars were getting smaller and smaller as Londoners faced the skyrocketing cost of fuel. The typical public service worker in London makes about 26k (pound sterling) and the typical private sector worker makes about 35k (pound sterling). They buy their gasoline by the liter and it costs about 4.5 pound sterling a gallon. As I have mentioned, if you are a tourist from the U.S. that's about $9/gallon if you rent a car.

There were a lot of very strange looking conveyances which I suppose classify as cars including the so-called Smart Car. You can check one of these out at www.smartcarpictures.com.
