Unhappy Insane prices...

http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com...es.aspx?page=1

Interesting read. Kind of explains some of the run up in oil, rice, gold, copper and other commodities. Also interesting to read that Russia and Mexico have lowered their oil outputs....

Looks like we are all going to get fooked some more.

Do you know what insane prices is??? I'm from Denmark, and a 07 zx10r, costs aprox. 43000 usd.!! And 1 liter gasoline is aprox. 2 usd, and I pay aprox. 2500 usd for the insurance and add to that road tax 250 usd a year. That is truly insane...

Looks like the 2008 is 13,545 euros. Which works out to about $21,672. Still very expensive compared to what we pay here in the states. And yes, your gasoline prices are a lot higher--over half of the price of fuel in Europe is taxes. When I looked to get my 2005 10R, I shopped around for insurance. I was quoted anywhere from $400 up to $3500 per year. Maybe you should shop around. Can't help you on the road tax. You need to complain to your Prime Minister. I am sure that will go as far as complaining to the President does here.

13,545 euros??? he he he... I wish! That's in germany my friend, in Denmark it's twice the price: http://www.rydbergsmc.dk/Kawasaki.12.0.html

239.995 Danish Kroner. = 43000 USD!!

So it's not just very expensive, its INSANE!!

Maybe someday it will get better, but likely not while im alive.. ;-)

That is crazy! What is the explanation for that kind of price gouging? I can't imagine why they would cost so much

I would venture to guess that 75% of that price is made up of various taxes..as you know the reason for the high price of fuel in Europe are the taxes that are tacked on to the price

our government is trying to convince us that the way to conserve fuel is to raise the price by adding more taxes that they get to do what they want with it...

kinda like a drug addict saying if he had more dope he would be a better person that could do a more efficient job
