$3.09 right now. I keep a gas log book, and I noticed a month ago I'd paid the lowest price per gallon that I had in two years.



I remember when I was 15 1/2 and paying a little over a dollar a gallon. Come to think of it, that was nine years ago. I'm getting older than I thought...

1.43 euro per liter; is about 5.53 euro per gallon; 7.66 dollar per gallon.



But then, you have an octane level of 95, which is the lowest you can get here. 98 or 100 are more expensive, Diesel and LPG are cheaper (altough Diesel is also expensive, compared to what it was before)

The difference is in the amount of tax those countries place on fuel. If your gas prices seem inordinately high compared to the U.S., blame your government. They're the ones making a big chunk of the profit.



Governents don't generally make profit, though, the money probably largely goes to maintenence and constructions of highway, and wheter you look at it per capita, or per size of the country, we have a lot more roads then most countries

I'm not against heavy taxes on gas, by the way, I think it's an exellent way to keep people from being to wastefull with it.

You're right - profit implies the government actually did something for the money they received, beyond simply taking it.

I'm carfree and use a bike to transport myself around. I recommend it, or look into public transit and walking. Sooner or later you'll be like me and not even know what the price of gas is, nor care.

Probably not.



Then again - how much is a gallon of bottled water in your area?

If you boil water it becomes a gas. Isn't that close enough?

Hot air isn't dependent on moisture.

Price/value/profit is kind of meaningless when taken out of the context of other consumer goods competing for the same dollar.

Do you have you gas with ice, or hot with milk and sugar?

Gasoline is more than a consumer good in most cases. Really more like a part of the infrastructure.

I've seen it for £1.05 a litre which would be about £3.97 a gallon which converted to US $ would be about $8 a gallon? Personally I don't know what you're all complaining about $3 a gallon!!! Seems great to me. There is no where i've seen in the U.K where you can get petrol for any less than £1 a litre.
