No passado dia 5 de Junho (Sábado) foi mais um Dia do Ambiente (e de São Bonifácio também, já agora).

"In the United States, where gasoline taxes average 43 cents a gallon (instead of dollars, as in Europe and Japan), a gallon of gasoline can be cheaper than a bottle of water - making it too cheap for most people to bother conserving.

National Geographic, June 2004 (página 85)
