Seen in a letter from a reader in this week’s Economist, who wrote:

SIR – I would like to reassure readers that all is not doom and gloom on the oil front (“Nostalgia for calmer days”, April 22nd). I recently took my car to a petrol station and was pleasantly surprised to find that the price of premium-grade petrol had been reduced from 90 halala to 60 halala per litre. For those unfamiliar with Saudi Arabia’s currency, this works out at 60 cents per American gallon.
