I have found that regardless of where you live and what the gas prices are, there is a constant complaint about it. In the US when I left gas was roughly 3 dollars per gallon and people complain. When I was in Aberdeen gas was around 8 dollars a gallon and people complained. Now I am in Dubai and gas is a little less than a dollar per gallon and people are complaining.
I think that no matter where you live gas is just something to complain about.
Though I hear in Saudi you used to go the gas station and they would fill you up for free. Nothing to complain about there.
