Rural Queensland, Australia...
U.S.$5.82 per US Gallon.. Unleaded/Ethanol 90% blend
U.S$6.05 per US Gallon.. 91 Octane Unleaded.
And you will find the vast majority of Crude Oil is not used to make Fuel!!
Most crude Oil when Refined goes into Manufacturing of Goods. Here in Australia only 2% of each 44 Gallon/200Litre barrel of refined Oil goes to Fuel
So really you can thank Manufacturing of Plastics, Make-Up, Clothing, etc, for you having to Subsidise their raw material costs.
