The Price of Gas (or Should I Say “Petrol”)

Ever since landing in Abu Dhabi, family and friends back home have had a million questions. But perhaps the one most frequently asked is “how much is the gas?”

Well, after converting litres to gallons and dirhams to dollars, I calculated the current price to be:

$1.77 per gallon

Normally, this is the part where I say that it’s not as cheap as we thought it would be. Or, that locals still talk about time when gas was literally cheaper than bottled water. But, I think that after reading $1.77/gal, none of you want to hear that. Sorry.
