Fuel Prices in Your Area

Unread postAuthor: MaxuS the 2nd » Fri Jun 13, 2008 3:48 pm

Hey everyone,

Just wondering what the price of fuel is in your area since it has now become a hot-topic in the news of today.
Diesel averages around £1.33 ($2.66) a litre,
Petrol averages around £1.25 ($2.50) a litre over here.

when I first started driving about 8 years ago it was right around 99 cents a gallon...

we have been spoiled I guess because everyone I know is freaking out since gas has quadroupled in a few years, like its a crisis. Guess its hard to complain when people elswhere are still paying more than double what we pay for gas.

Well, I remember, years ago (maybe 8 years or so) there "was a gas price war" in eastern Canada. At that time I remember paying something like $0.12/liter. Seems like it was almost free looking at the prices today.

I pay about $2.12NZD a litre which is about $5.9USD a gallon.

A few years back it cost about $60 to fill up my Honda Accord (2litre), now it costs $113.

Wow, it seems to vary greatly between still quite relatively cheap and really outrageous.
Fuel prices would be only be £0.50 - £0.60/liter if the government weren't adding a ridiculous amount of tax ontop of it. Oh well, it's their only source of money these days.

The spudding community should start work on an alternately powered vehicle!
Maybe this summer when I finally get a lathe and a mill.

1 US gallon = 3.78541178 liters
the euro is worth about 1.5 USD, so i think it's about even
(or worse, my math skills fall apart during summer break)
