What are you paying for gas?

Recommended Posts

Just curious, during this time of war what gas is going for in your neigborhood?

Here in western New York it's $1.75 a gallon of 87 octane.

Boy!!! $1.58 would make my day! Detroit prices vary a bit -

87 octaine can be as high as $1.85 - And as low as $1.71.

At 16 - 18 mpg in both my truck (mine) and my wife's van we are spending a little over $700.00 per month.

That's it, I'm putting a sign up on the house and moving...... I just paid $1.89 for 87 octane (1.95 plus at most stations)....... I'm only driving the Z on Saturdays right now because she takes the expensive stuff and that is over $2.00 in some places around here.

Okay, could not resist down here in Brisbane Australia the current price for 87 octane is around 92c per litre. converting that to a US gallon and US$ this equals US$2.05 per US Gallon if my calculations are right.

To be honest I had the dubious distinction of paying US$2.25per US gallon on the weekend as I use 98 Octane in both of my cars.

To be able to pay $1.58:mad:

Top this off with crappy roads:angry: and bloody traffice jams on inadequate roads LOL bloody poor driving manners:finger: I would laugh all the way:mad:

87 Octane regular was $2.25 USD last week. It's down to $2.21 USD now where I live in CA

You mean I could live in OZ and it wouldn't cost any more for gas. I'd have them pretty Aussie girls to drool over at the beach too?

Where did I put my suitcase?

I hate California.:angry:

Don't hate California. The fuel and sales taxes haven't gone up since 9/11, blame the Oil Refiners that have eliminated competition in the state, and the Federal / State politicians that allow this to exist!

Nuke the Politicians until their nUtZ Glow!

Perth: $AUD 1.04 per litre. With the current exhange rate this equates to about $USD 2.45 per gallon... So don't cry, you still have some of the cheapest fuel in the world!

4,23$ :stupid: :stupid: :stupid:

Well, it's mostly (90%) taxes, so I guess it's going to my free social system, too bad that in 12 years of activity I never had even a flew... :classic: :classic:

When I was in England early this year petrol was at about 74 pence a litre - seeing as we have all decided to convert it into American bucks and gallons that equates to about $5.41 a gallon. Beat that!!!

Here on the Gold Coast we're hovering just above 90c a litre, the same as biker.

The price I'm paying for 98 ron here in central London works out at roughly $3.75 ( USD ) per Gallon ( US Gallon, that is ).

As Fred said, over here in Europe we know that a very large proportion of that is Excise Duty. Modern Governments use the motorist as a cash cow, and very little of the revenue that they raise from motoring-related taxation goes back into the road system or its upkeep. Its all being used to prop up other areas of the fiscal budget.

The Government ( on a local and national level ) cannot actually afford the reality of a decrease in the use of the automobile, despite their propaganda telling us that we should all be getting on public transport. If we all did that the country would fall apart.

Thanks to your export the Croc Hunter, I'm familiar with the "By Crikey" one, but can you translate the other two?

Here in CA we have quite a few queens, but they don't talk like that! ROFL

If we all jumped on the bus, the government would just jack up the price of Bus tickets to replace the lost fuel tax income. They are going to "milk" us one way or another.

Hi all,

last Friday I payed here in Germany 1,239 $ for 1 litre ROZ '98.

Most of that is tax, similar to the situation HS -30H descibed.

Because of so called ecological reasons the government hurts the car drivers, but at the same time prices for public transportation increase all the time, too. We are the milk cows of the nation for every rubbish!

Lachlan,

There's a very good chance that you will be better at maths than I am ( I'm an old git now, you know............. ).

I was trying to give a figure in US Gallons ( not Imperial Gallons ) - so that it would be easier to understand for the majority. Is that right - 3.79 Litres = 1 US Gallon? I know that 4.546 Litres = 1 Imperial Gallon.....................

If you want to work it out for yourself and check up on my maths, I usually pay around 97-98p per Litre of 98 Ron "Super Unleaded" ( that's £0.97 to £0.98 ) here in the central London area. The £STG to $US exchange rate is roughly $1.60 = £1 at the moment.

It's so expensive that I don't even want to think about it too much.
