Husband told me tonight gas was $3.4?something per gallon at the Hess station he goes to when he filled up. That's about 35 cents more per gallon than the last time I bought gas a couple of weeks ago-------at the same location!! YIKES!!

Yeah, well it's £1.40 a litre here, so basically about £6.30 a gallon (just over $10)!

I filled my tank this morning. It cost a few pence short of £80 affraid affraid

I need a tank of fuel every week and I have a pretty economical car - I get about 50mpg!

It is very scary indeed. It'll be £2 per litre before long! Unfortunately we live beyond the back of beyond so we have to drive everywhere. Just have to cut back on other stuff or send the kids out to work! LOLflag LOLflag

Precisely! I'm sure lots of people in the UK would love to be paying American petrol prices right now. You folks over there seem to have no idea how lucky you really are to be able to get your fuel so cheaply. tongue Smile

In Italy we are at the moment at €1.55 = £1.35 = $ 2.10 for a litre, so basically the same as in the UK, and still rising... Suspect Suspect

That is about $8 dollar a gallon.

And now with this new earthquake tragedy, the prices may go up even further.

Our gas are averaging $1.13.9 litre today. The US gallon is about 4 litres, so our price is $4.56 US. When I see all the prices in the UK and Europe, I feel very lucky.

Oh, yes,---we DO know how lucky we are, compared with most other areas of the industrialized world. That fact is brought home to us all the time. My comment was just a reaction to how much the price had gone up in the short time between when I had filled my car's tank and last night when my husband bought gas at that same station. A bit of sticker shock for us. But no,---nothing even close to what you all have been paying right along. I wish they'd get some of these alternate fuel projects up and running sometime soon. I hate like hell being held hostage by the oil companies!!

It depends on where you live in Canada too. Right now it's a 1.24 per Litre
Since a gallon 3.8 litres it's roughly $4.50 per gallon.

Sorry Sassy., I was too lazy to multiply our price by 3.8. It was easier to multiply by 4. So to be more precise, my price currently is 4.33 Gallon. Yes it makes a difference where you are in Canada

The average petrol price in Melbourne and Sydney is around $1.49 per litre or $5.66 per gallon. You can get it a bit cheaper if you shop around. Our currencies are almost at parity. This is a very expensive country to live in!
