75% of the price is tax that's why.Same as cigarettes,people pay almost $17 for a pack of 20 when its $5 in the rest of the world

Petrol isn't a problem, car insurance is. There's only three types of somalis that can afford insurance. Cab drivers who use it for work, single mothers, and drug dealers. Everyone else takes public transport or uber. You can't compare London to minihopless or whatever shithole you call home. Compare london to new york, it's quicker to take the d-train to manhatten than drive through the congestion.

Also most of the cars you americans drive wouldn't be considered road legal in the UK, they are too old and dangerous! My montly bus pass probably costs more than your car. :lol:
I'm getting rid of my car you want it :stylin:
If by getting rid you mean giving it away for free I'll have it. I'll send a tow truck right now. :usure:

Gamer over 50% of the petrol price is tax that the govt take.

Don't get me started on cigerettes everyone buys roll ups now :snoop:
Looooooool Busted! a pack of 10 or 12.5 g lasts me about the whole week which saves me about a good 20-30 quid, which either goes towards petrol or bashal, not forgetting it has less nicotine, tar and carbon monoxide. Fokkkk Mayfair :deadrose: Amber Leaf :win: But when I am on a date or at vip shisha spots, nigga be rocking my old school B&H golden shyt! Gotta keep up appearances bbe hadii kale waar kan sidii odayasha cadaanka usoo uraya ama wax u kala wada ayaa lagu odhan!
