Your fuel price is very similar to ours (Oz) but the cigarette price shows a huge disparity. We pay near A$10 for a pack these days which is part of the reason I gave it up over a year back and gave myself a very nice tax-free pay rise for spending on less harmful things.

Finland yesterday


Petrol:

98 E10 = 1.62€ per litre
95 E5 = 1.57€ per litre

Diesel was about 1.20€

One litre = 0.26 Gallon
So 1 gallon = 3.7 litre

But anyways, the price is too high right now. Last summer, 98 was somewhere aroun 1.45 - 1.50.

Also, that new 95 E5 gas came out about 3 months ago...it has 10% more Ethanol than normally, and most of the "old" cars can't even use it. And still, it's cheaper than the old 98.

Last time I put gas in my tank in NEPA it was like 3.70 something (I am stuck using premium). I have been thinking, this whole oil bubble thing is a sure fire loser. If it continues it will just set up the banks, oil industry, current politicians for a massive, massive fall. Not only will they dry-rod the economy, devalue the currancy into nothingness, but have many many angry people after them.

What if this is all just a setup for a coup? Think about it for a moment. Imagine if gas went up to 5$-10$ a gallon due to speculation or severe devaluation of the dollar(QE3). Then the President comes out for a speach to try and calm people, then someone in a military uniform walks up and "arrests"(or worse) President Obama, followed by similar actions against the Judicial and Legislative branch's of government. One could say the people wouldn't stand for it, but then imagine the next morning gas was 99 cents a gallon again.

Fulda, Germany here.

Got a good deal on Saturday and splurged for 50 Euros worth.

€1.47 for a liter. Translated that makes it $7.79 a gallon. We were so happy we bought an ice cream also.
Anymore all trips with the car are planned out with the idea of what is the most efficient way. It's not like back in the good old days when you just went for a drive.

I beg your pardon my fellow Latvian but after my calculations I came up with a price about 7 $/gallon.

Current price for 1 liter in Latvia is about 0.9 LVL.
1 US gallon is roughly 3,8 liters.
So that makes 3,42 LVL/US gallon
1 LVL is roughly 2 USD
That makes about 6,84 $ for 1 US gallon.
As the calculations are approximate
I'll round up numbers to 7 $/gallon
(As gasoline prices have a trend to skyrocket.)

Cheers.

Western Isles (UK)

£1.48 a litre of diesel

not sure on petrol, not much difference.

I put £20 in the tank last night and the gauge only moved one notch.

I got my driving license 4 and a half years ago and have seen the prices soar by over 50 pence a litre.

Its getting hard to put any less than £10 of diesel into the car as you need only squeeze the trigger for a second and watch the numbers shoot up at ridiculous speed. Its almost getting to expensive to drive, pretty soon people in unskilled jobs or on minimum wage will be driving to work for the sole purpose of earning enough money to put fuel in their car to get to work.

Where do we draw the line?

And why the spike in prices? Because of Lybia?

Let me get this strait? The price of oil goes up 6% because production from a country that produces 2% of the oil has a 50% drop in production.

Ok. 50% of 2% is 1%...yet there is a 6% spike???

Then to top that off. In America, where we import less than 1% of our oil from Lybia, has a gas spike around 16%.

I'm sorry, but these numbers really don't add up to me...


I've talked with gas station owners/franchisees. Their answers are funny. When the price of oil drops and you ask them why the price at the pump hasn't dropped, the answer they give you is that the gas you're pumping right now was bought 6 mos. ago, before the drop in oil prices. If you go today and ask them why it's so expensive, they tell you to just look at what's going on in the ME. After you explain to them that the gas in the tank was bought before the uprisings and shouldn't be sold at those prices, they look at you funny and then blame the Govt. and taxes.

In other words. Yes, price gouging is going on AND will continue.

Memphis TN area is around $3.20 per gallon, right now. I'm trying to not let my tank get below half, cause the prices are supposed to be going up even more, and I have a long (40 minute) commute each way. What I really hate is I'll have to cut back on weekend driving.

€1.48/litre for petrol which makes it $7.80 a US gallon. Diesel is lightly cheaper at €1.42/litre.

By the way Boon, if you had Dobermans loose here you would be prosecuted for frightening the poor little thief.

6 hours plugged into household current...3X per month or more...

i do however give away my Fuel Perks discount from the BiLo grocery,
my usual discount is averaged around .45¢ to .65¢ per gallon by the time my
friend tanks up every three weeks or so...


My suggestion to contractors that need tools on the job...gas vehicles as needed
electric vehicles when practical.

for instance...it might soon become fashionable if not required that all the
Lawn Services use all electric equipment including blowers, mowers, chainsaws,
and use electric utility vehicles for the commercial & residential clients.

I'm at my breaking point with ALL the noise pollution these people create !!
