How are gas prices in your part of the world?

In the past few months gas prices here have jumped about 30 cents a liter and is currently $1.26 a Liter ($5.73 Imp Gallon. 4.546 Liters = 1 Imp gallon), expected to hit the $1.50 mark by the May long weekend ($6.81 Imp gallon). The prices probably vary a lot in different parts of the globe. I watched a guy fill up his 1/2 ton truck the other day to a whopping $140.00. Here in Alberta we are sitting on a large quantity of the worlds oil supply and it doesn’t seem to give us a break. Gouging you think?

$1.26 a Liter? wow, thats really cheap compared to our price here in Germany, which is about 1,46€ at the moment = $2,25


#3

Up and up. £1.09p a litre last time I checked, but in some (non-supermarket chain) petrol stations we’ve seen it as high as £1.18 a litre. :eek:

South-west of England here BTW. And to think once upon a time, we UK’ers would be up in arms if it passed the £1 mark. How things change…

An additional piece of information when talking about “gallons”:

The U.S. gallon is 3.785411784 litres

The Imperial gallon is 4.54609 litres or about 1.2 U.S. gallons

Canada uses the Imperial gallon and not the U.S. gallon.

bean55[/QUOTE]yeah gas bounced around back then with the gas wars they called them here. So yeah it was a quarter then down to 17 cents and so on. It wasn’t a big deal to top off and spill some gas on the ground :bigsmile:


#15

About $3.65/gallon here in NW Indiana.


#16

The 92 octane that Drage quoted is called Premium here in the States. I use 88 octane (Regular) so as to save a little money.

So Bob basically you are paying .87 cents a liter if my math is correct 1 US gallon = 3.785 liters. Pretty good compared to the rest of the world so far. When I started driving I was more interested in beer and women in the back seat than gas prices.:stuck_out_tongue:

Drage, I guess if I lived in your area I would be riding a bike.:eek:
