    Traffic Jam

    A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on the motorway. Nothing has moved for half an hour when suddenly a man knocks on the window.

    The driver rolls down his window and asks, - 'What's going on?'

    'Terrorists down the road have kidnapped Gordon Brown, Alistair Darling, David Miliband and Jack Straw.

    They're asking for a £10 million ransom or they're going to douse them with petrol and set them on fire. We're going from car to car, taking up a collecton.'

    The driver asks, 'How much is everyone giving, on average?'

    'Most people are giving about a gallon.'

    The thing that always amuses me about petrol prices is that they're often quote as pounds per gallon "Petrol breaks £5 a gallon barrier" and such like.

    The UK went metric for fuel 30 years ago and I would guess that most drivers have never paid for fuel in gallons!
