Gasoline through the Google machine

Unleaded : P36.37 / Liter
USD 1.00 : 48.83 Php

Where was Google when I was in high school. Aside from churning out bits of useful info, turns out it also calculates. Serendipitously found a way to convert those stats up there in US units without breaking a sweat. Typed "36.37 PHP per liter in USD per gallon", hit Google search and ta-dah!

36.37 (Philippine pesos per liter) = 2.81925354 U.S. dollars per US gallon

Hmm. Looks like Bush's war is costing us more to move around than it does his minions. How's that for a freaking factoid.
