We moved to England from San Francisco last September and bought a Ford 
Galaxy, 7 seat mini-van, diesel, that gets 45 miles to the gallon, and 
can cruise all day at 110 mph (I've driven 100+mph from Cornwall to 
London several times -- try that in California without spending all day 
looking in your rear view mirror).  (And why is it that the same car 
gets under 20 miles per gallon in the States?)

But we're not complaining about the price of gas.  Why?  Because we get 
free health care for the extra we pay at the pump! (see
