How much is the gas?Pumps are painful all over the world
At a gas station near Cologne Airport in Germany, Bernd Mueller watches the numbers pump up quickly. They are 22 euros ($ 23), 23 euros and 24 euros. Around the world, drivers like Mueller are habitual and personal as gasoline and diesel prices soar, boosted by the Russian war in Ukraine and the global backlash from the COVID-19 pandemic. I am rethinking my finances. Energy prices are a major driver of inflation, rising around the world and raising living costs.
