prices were at $1.15CDN/L two days ago, here in southern ontario. today they're around $1.02
| 7:57 pm on Apr 24, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I think it's around $2.90 (per-gallon) for regular in Norfolk, VA - though to be honest I really don't pay attention.
With working at home, and no clients to worry about having to visit - I drive less than 10 miles a week on average.

$1.099 here in Winnipeg

Think yourselves lucky, in the UK the prices average at 95p a litre for standard petrol or 99p for high octane or diesel.
That's up to USD$1.76 / CDN$1.99 a litre - ouch.

1,32 EUR/litre, thats 6,15 US$/gallon.
No wonder you still drive big SUV in the US, when the gas prices are so low. :-)

I don't drive a big SUV because of gas prices. I drive one to make it easier to run over Mini Coopers. :)

Hmmm... I filled up my hot rod 61 Ford F100 pickup the other day for USD$2.95 gal/premium. I'm guessing a litre would get me to the end of the block?
Maybe I'll buy a new Mini, or an old Metropolitan. :)

I'm in the UK but converted to USD my gallon price works out at..

That's £1.18 a litre according to the Gallon/Litre ratio above! Surely some mistake (but still very expensive at 99p a litre).

Chevron Premium (91 Octane) at $3.19 USD Per Gallon
| 11:55 pm on Apr 24, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Florida, around $3.00 gallon.
Don't drive much so don't really pay attention to it.

Currently in Malaysia - RM1.82/litre
That's $0.52 USD/litre, $2.36 US per real gallon, or 1.97 per US gallon
The national government here subsidises fuel. Some kind of indirect way of subsidising the economy.

Too much- that's why I'm bicycling to work more often. I've been coming up with excuses to be lazy, but once gas hit US$3/gallon for regular unleaded (then jumped anout $.30/gallon the next day at the gas station I pass every day), that was the turning point.
| 1:54 am on Apr 25, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Right now running from $2.80 (87 Octane) to $3.10 for premium (93 Octane).
I don't drive much, I take mass transit to work (train). I just came back from Nevada (Las Vegas), California (Death Valley)and Arizona (Grand Canyon) and the prices out there were about 20 - 40 cents higher than here in New Jersey.

$3.20+ in Manhatten. I think i'll move to Winnipeg if I can find it

|very expensive at 99p a litre |
I don't know if you've noticed, but I've recently seen petrol stations (here in the UK) with an extra digit on the start of forecourt prices, blank and ready to go...
| 2:28 pm on Apr 25, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Yep only a matter of time.

I'm with Mack here.
I now have to sell my Jeep as it only does 15mpg which is roughly 50c per mile for you Statesiders.

At least in Europe a lot of people have the option to bike or use mass transit. Here I used the mass transit system once. It ment driving 20 miles(putting me on the other side where I worked then catching a bus back to where I worked. And if I was running 10min late I'd have to walk 1/4 mile.

Just bought me a gas guzzler - gets 13.5 MPG on the highway, I love it.
I am planning a lot of road trips this summer. (screw the oil producers and the oil companies I am going to do what I want this summer.)
Oh ya, not only does my cool new SUV guzzel gas but it requires the preimum blend of gas.
2.78 USD a gallon for 91 octaine in the northwest USA.

I think it was Nov or Dec of 98, when I remember getting gas for US$ 00.69 (69 Cents)/Gallon and the normal price was around US$ 00.74/Gallon.
Today's rates are so bad that one can just laught at them.

I paid 94p a litre for unleaded in the UK yesterday. Diesel is over £1 a litre in a lot of places here!
| 6:10 pm on Apr 25, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Thankfully, I don't have a car :) but I did notice the local petrol station selling unleaded at 97p/litre yesterday. What really sucks though is that something like 86% of this figure is tax.
<grumble> most expensive fuel, most expensive booze, most expensive tobacco, and they (the Government) wonder why we all go over to Europe to stock up </grumble>

About Rs.45 /Lt in India - Premium

$2.80 a gallon in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Gives me more of an excuse to not drive my big truck anywhere. Glory for the lazy.

Here in Southampton, UK we pay
£0.95 per litre (£3.60 gallon) which in USD is about, at the current exchange rate, $6.25 a gallon.
And our petrol companies are almost all making record profits, the one which isn't is still making £1bn each month in profit (that's $1.74 bn US each month)
