I STAND CORRECTED!!!!
My friend who read this same blog entry deduced that the person writing it must live in a more remote area of Mozambique and thus, pays more for gas than we do here in the city area. I also had another Mozmabican blogger comment that the last time she had calculated it, gas was about $6 a gallon.
I think it's gone up since then, I know non-diesel has, which is what I use. So, more likely I pay between $6 and $7 a gallon.
I apologize for not checking my information before posting it for the whole world!
Thanks to someone else's blog who took time to do all the math - liters to gallons and mets to dollars - I know now that I pay ($9.20 a gallon-wrong! Thankfully!) for gas!!!!
And it continues to rise, although not as quickly as prices were rising in the US while I was there. But the dollar is weakening so the exchange rate continues to weaken as well.
Factor in that I live 25 minutes from the nearest grocery store and 40 minutes from the heart of the city (in normal traffic) and that's a big chunk of change spent on fuel!
Wow. At least I know Who controls my pocketbook!
