"Americans are in a state of "shock" at finally having to pay for their
gasoline.
This country has been getting cheap gas for a lot of years."

What do you mean by this? I have been paying for my gasoline for over
35 years, ever since I started driving.
No one else was paying when I filled my car/truck/motorcycle.
I don't know why we here in the USA are 'supposed' to be paying as much
as other parts of the world, just because
these other places have decided to tax themselves silly.
Was there some 'one world' rules passed that I missed? Europe could
have the exact same prices we have if they
removed some of the obscene taxes.
