Apple Some people say Macs are too expensive. Some say they aren't. I say they've got it all wrong. Read on to understand how I came to this conclusion.

expensive - Bringing a large price.

From the Concise English Dictionary:

"Expensive - commanding a high price, costly"

You see, whether or not something's price is high is subjective-- that is what I tried to make clear! To me, gas in the US is cheap, very cheap-- however, most Americans will disagree with me.

Why is US gas cheap to me?

Because we Dutch pay 1.45E per litre. Do some maths and you'll see how expensive we are on that.

"Bringing a large price" - Exactly-- for you Americans, gas now brings a large price. Yet, I find your gas prices not high at all.

See where I'm getting at?
