So with the insanity that is rising gas prices I was wondering:

What are all you Webmasters are paying at the pump?

I am in Alberta Canada and we are the largest Oil exporter in North America and the prices here are at there highest ever right now.

I am in liters so I will post both.

US gallon = 3.7854118 liter

So here we pay $1.055cdn per liter
>>>>
Or $3.99cdn per gallon

Is that about on par with every where else?

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.

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. :)

Mack,

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

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.

New Jersey

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.

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...

best, a.

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.

Tax Tax Tax Tax

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.

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>

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)
