Just paid $3.259 per gallon 87 OCT

When are they going to drop that $.009 BS anyway?

Luckly I'm not a traveling man, and work is only a couple of miles away.

Gas at my place is the price of a few cans of beans.

I just paid 59c a litre for LPG, less 4c a litre with a shopper docket.

And I did 315 klms on $27 worth of gas (= 8.5c per klm.).

So the best I can figure is you're getting your gas for $2.06 per gallon before the docket.

Touché (big time!) & hoist with my own petard etc. (Although, in my defence, I was looking at cost rather then fuel consumption )



I wish you hadn't asked as I just worked it out at 15 lit. per 100 klms., which is rubbish. Mind you, most trips are to the shops, 4 klm away, so my ute never really warms up.

the 87 around here is at $2.95 or so per gallon. i was surprised, today, when i drove by. it's mostly been hovering around $2.50 and $2.75.



with our prius, we buy gas once a week and it's usually 7-8 gallons. we're averaging about 400 miles per 7-8 gallons, and most of our gas bills in the last few months have been between $20 and $25. we're very happy with our prius.

$2.79 at the local place I go. The place two blocks up is $3.05. I have a Hyundai Accent that gets really good mileage but it's still sucking away all my 'disposable' income. I wish the public transit system around here was worth a crap.

It probably is. American's don't realize how cheap their gasoline is compared to most 1st world countries, and we'll kill to keep it that way.



Check out these world prices from March 2005: http://money.cnn.com/pf/features/lis...bal_gasprices/



For Gas Prices in the US, GasBuddy.com says New Jersey tends to be cheapest around $2.84/gallon and Hawaii tends to be the most expensive at $3.44/gallon.

Gas/petrol prices are the same in the U.S. as in any other 1st world country. Maybe a bit more expensive.



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.

While wholesale prices for gasoline are generally the same in Europe as they are in the U.S., Schipper noted the $5, $6 or $7 a gallon Europeans pay, thanks to the high tax.



Americans, by contrast, pay a federal tax of about 18 cents a gallon. State taxes vary but are generally lower than 40 cents a gallon.

The main factor in price disparities between countries is government policy, according to AirInc, a company that tracks the cost of living in various places around the world. Many European nations tax gasoline heavily, with taxes making up as much as 75 percent of the cost of a gallon of gasoline, said a spokesperson for AirInc.
