Re: Insane waste?
It is not gasoline, it is petrol, I learnt English, thanks to the 'net, that seems to have been pointless.
The British seem to embrace all novel cretinisms from the USA as soon as they are coined.
I am not intending to insult 'murrican language, except Noo Yawk of now, which I really do despise, for reasons of reading and style, it is just so terrible that it is enforced as English in other places.
It is such an ugly form of expression.
