Gas  = Gasoline. Gasoline  = Gasoline Ally. Gasoline Ally = gas station.  End of story. 

 

 

Why do I feel this is not going to be end of story?...

The Ministry of Damage Control perceives this as an improvement of 4.5 : 1. 

 

Fuel will continue to be sold in litres until the price gets closer to $3 then will switch to $1.50 per 500ml.

I struggle to see a second pipe used for gas. 

 

 

 

Have a look at this article in the NZ Herald - it's easier to see from closer.

Apparently there's a gas pipeline that runs alongside the broken (liquid) one, but there's nothing wrong with it, and working fine.

 

 

there is only 1 pipeline, all the fuels use the same line

The liquid fuels all use the same pipe, the gas uses a separate one.

Really? That's new to me! Mind you I don't claim to know my suit jackets from blazers.

LOL, years ago, we had a guest, a Texan. "Everything is bigger in Texas" as US travellers will know. Except the gallon, which is over 25% smaller in Texas compared to Imperial.
