All the stuff to do with rising fuel costs after Hurricane Katrina got me thinking as to how I like it when I hear people talk about ‘gas.’
Here, we’re quite lazy as well.
We don’t call gasoline gas though, we call it petrol and even that’s a shortened word. I like the sound of the word petroleum, though.
Anyway, we’re all lazy: gasoline – gas; petroleum – petrol
That’s why we need cars, because we’re reluctant to take shanks’s pony and we’re getting fatter.
