The average price of petrol will hit the landmark figure of £5 a gallon today, in the wake of the two-day strike at the Grangemouth plant, one of the country's biggest oil refineries.
Perhaps, but why is this being reported in such a manner? We haven't used the gallon in years. Let's have a little consistency, shall we?
(The average price of unleaded petrol yesterday was 109.77p, £4.99 a gallon.)
