All the more reasons not to use the liter.

Everybody knows that much of gas price is taxes - a good thing - but it's one of those things much better left a bit in the abstract, to keep people ranting in general - they always do anyway - but not in particulars and specifics.

If you price crude in euros per liter, people would actually realize how much of the retail price is taxes. And then, they would start to have ideas...

The gov should never lie but a little bit of obscurity here and there can be good, pragmatic policy :)
