Things like grocery stores tend to be further away in the US, thereby costing more fuel to get to.



The nearest grocery store to my house is about 35 miles away. The nearest Sams Club (big discount grocer) is about 60 miles away.


From the data I've found, this is incorrect. The average US household spends 4% of it's pretax income on gas, whereas the average British household spends around 10%

That may be true, but we're not talking about the average household.
