Just wondering what everyone else is paying for gas in their area. I just paid $2.53/gallon for premium at one of the "cheaper" stations in my neighborhood. I guess crude oil is at record highs (again) so it's not coming down anytime soon either.

When I filled up the day before yesterday it was $1.92 a gallon for regular unleaded. That seems to be the norm around this area.

What?
I wish I lived in the USA, I pay Euro 1,40/LITER!!!
So that would be $7.05/gallon

I close my eyes when I fill the 90L tank of our Chevy (for the same price as Philos). It is just too scary. People arrive, fill their tank and leave while I am still standing there....

From what I heard 2005 will be even worse when it comes to demand than 2004. I don't expect it to stop either, given the rising demand of central Asia. Personally I'd like to get rid of oil driven engines as soon as possible. Oil is a dead end, it will only get more expensive from now on. Come up with alternatives, fast!
Note that the winter in Eurasia has been relatively mild this season, causing a lower demand, keeping the priceincrease in check.
I don't think that drilling in the wildlife of Alaska is going to change one bit. We shall not be replacing our Chevy by a new one as long as Chevrolet won't make engines that run more efficient or change to whole package to run more efficient (like a weight loss).

gas is $2.23 a gallon here
03/19/2005 07:13:57 PM · #11
I paid $2.07 for super unleaded a couple days ago. Prices are always cheaper for gas in the Houston area though. The prices are rising, but those of us in the USA shouldn't complain much, after all, gas is still cheaper here than pretty much the rest of the world!

down here it is $NZ1.25 per LITRE
03/19/2005 07:16:56 PM · #13
$1.06 per litre. At last calculations that is 3.84 litres to your one gallon. Yikes!

There HAS to be a way to make an engine that runs efficiently on something other than gasoline (not including diesel) -- so let's get on with it already hehe.

$2.01 a gallon here for the cheap stuff and like $2.10+ for the good stuff.

Everybody in the US: STFU over gas prices:
I pay $6.4 per gallon. And that is lower than it seems because of the weak dollar! (I even did the conversion for you!)
03/19/2005 07:20:55 PM · #16
$2.27 is the cheapest around here, with most being in the $2.40 range.
UGH

I think that was a little uncalled for. No need to be ugly.

Around the same as here. Must be something about being on a coast that makes it more expensive. To add insult to injury, Newfoundland and Labrador and British Columbia are both oil producing provinces.

$.93 per litre in New Brunswick, Canada. That's $3.52 canadian per US gallon, or $2.81 US per gallon.
