Gas (petrol) in USA is ridiculously cheap to what it is in Europe.
USA - around 3-4 $
Europe around 7-9 $

I hope this allows Yankees to appreciate where they are.

I want to live in the USA. Cheapest petrol in the western world, cost of most things, including cars, is half of what we pay in Australia. We also travel long distances, but don't have anything like the road infrastructure of the US. On top of all that, we can't own a gun for protection, we get arrested for driving after having just 2 glasses of beer and speed cameras on the roads are everywhere, with fines for being as little as 3kms over the limit ( about 2 mph). and if that's not enough, workers on the average wages lose half in taxes ( income tax, gst, stamp duties and excise taxes). for those that aren't aware, our dollar is at least worth a US$. average wage is about 50k a year, but most are on less that 40k a year. How does that compare, anyone?

Now, to answer the OP on what we pay for gas ( we call in petrol), it's around 1.45 a litre at the moment where I live, so that's around $5.50 a US gallon.

I'm travelling in the UK at the moment in a friends pretty small 1.9 diesel Fiat Scudo car type van.

I put in £10 British pounds here of diesel, around $16 USD and I managed around 47 miles!

The cost per litre was £1.39 a litre or $2.23 which is just outrageous by US standards.

I love being back in the states as I can afford to drive again lol

Saying that though engine sizes in general in the UK are pretty small like 1.0, 1.2l, 1.6l etc. Larger engine cars are pretty cheap to buy second hand here as the gas is so expensive.

Nova Scotia, Canada - $1.22/Litre

It's been creeping up every week for almost a month, food prices are getting higher every week now.

I've actually noticed something about the food prices over the past few months. When the weekly flyers arrive at my door, I always check the sale prices. I've seen a few items advertise as on sale, but they were the same regular price last week.


Example:
Last week the regular price for a 2 Litre carton of milk was $2.50
This week the flyer says Milk on sale for $2.50
Next week the regular price of milk will be $3.00



Has anyone else noticed this sneaky way of raising prices where they are?

3.48 here in Illinois. This crap ticks me off so bad, I might go throw 10 bucks in the 82 Camaro and just burn the tires off. I need to blow off a little steam.


Then of course when the gas is gone after 4 minutes and I have wasted 1/4 the tread on my 295/50's, I will go home and take a nap and dream of the better days..



Oh, and sorry for you folks in the UK. That has gotta suck..

gasoline is WAY too cheap in the US... $3.50 is ridiculously cheap.
yes, ridiculously cheap.

people have been spoiled for years paying next to nothing for gasoline,
and it's high time prices went up. the only way you appreciate something
is when you pay a fair value for a product.

and years of cheap gasoline have led us to waste it... if you dont think
we waste gasoline, try watching a NASCAR race, where idiots race their
fancy vehicles IN CIRCLES!

so please, stop bitching about high gasoline prices, rather,
be thankful for bargain that petrol is.

Who is paying $10/gallon.........?
Highest anyone has said in this thread was $4.00ish.
And you think 3.50 is cheap!?
When my dad was a teenager he could fill up his VW bug for 5 bucks.
Me thinks you are too young to paying for gas yet.

Btw if we drilled in Alaska (Or the Dakotas) oil prices would plummet to where they were in the 1950's. And there is enough oil there to last 200 years.

OH yeah and Nascar is lame.


edit on 7-3-2011 by freedish because: (no reason given)


most people in Europe & UK are paying upwards of $10/gallon... tho obviously they pay the equivalent in Euros or pounds.
Drilling in Alaska? get real. The north slope is played out... ANWR doesn't have enough oil to make a significant
difference. the Shale oil out west is useless... it takes more energy to get the oil out than you get back...

research the term "EROEI" energy return on energy invested. (energy return / energy invested )
if the EROEI ratio is less than "1", that source of energy is useless.

and if you dont already know, Saudi GHAWAR, the largest oil field on the planet ( 5 million bbls/per) , is on the verge of collapse (the field produces 90% water, 10% oil)
as is Cantarell in Mexico, where output is declining fast from years of nitrogen gas injection.

yup, and like yer dad, in 15 years you'll be recollecting how you could buy gas for as little as $3.50 a gallon,
and all you wanted too, when people are stuck in gas lines paying $20 for a gallon of gas.

New Brunswick, Canada

1.17 Litre for regular here, and I agree the prices for everything are going up. It's not just gas that is going up, it is everything that is made from petrol products, ie: PLASTIC is a major one, we need to do something, i'm all for banning all the pastic products that we can for example plastic bags, plastic bottles (pop, water, juice, milk) banning as much plastic as possible which would reduce the amount needed. I think in North America it is something like 50 million plastic grocery bags we use every year, and for some reason I am thinking that number is even too low. If Companies would switch to using glass like they use to, and which can be recycled we would all be better off.

A little off topic sorry.

Ontario Canada, prices are around 1.28 per litre. With news that it will go up to around 1.55 per litre before the end of the month. Soon i won't be able to afford to go to work.

It varies, but it's about £1.33 for a litre of diesel and £1.29 for a litre of petrol. Converting that to (UK) gallons you get: £6.04 for diesel and £5.86 for petrol.

I've just had a look on wikipedia at the gallon and I've noticed the US gallon is ~3.79L whereas the UK gallon is ~4.54L

Aggie Man,

Really don't know how you can come up with 119 gallons of gasoline per barrel of oil. There's only 42 gallons in a barrel. During refining we actually get 43 gallons of product(not all gasoline) out of a barrel. The real numbers are about 26 gallons of gasoline out of a barrel of saudi Light or West Texas Intermediate with other by products. I've wondered for years why we pay so little for gasoline.

Please change your avatar as posting something this inaccurate is embarassing to the rest of us.
