Got a mix-match post today:
First up, Mrs Scot and I went to Wembly Arena in London on Saturday night to a concert. One of my pet-hates is getting stuck in traffic, especially when it is expected. Therefore parking at the arena was out of the question – especially at a cost of £25 ($40). I trawled through Google for alternative car parks and off-ro
ad parking, but to no avail – until I came across ParkatmyHouse.com – it is essentially a classified ads space for people to rent their own parking spaces. I found a listing for a space that was about a miles walk from the arena, but on the right side for getting out without being stuck in traffic. At £15 ($24) it was a resounding success! 🙂 We didn’t get stuck in any traffic and the walk was quite refreshing! How cool is that? Maybe some of my readers in other countries could look into setting something similar up if there is an opportunity!
Second thing is Petrol Prices (Gas Prices 😉 ) – How do prices vary in the US/Canada/Europe/ROW? In London, prices are pretty volatile! Our local garage’s petrol price varies from 134.9 (pence per litre) to 139.9 – other garages of the main highways are up to 142.9. I have seen 132.9 in some places further outside London. That is a deviation of 10p (almost 8%). I found another website petrolprices.com which tracks the day rates of your local stations – quite useful if you spend as much on commuting as we do!
