Petrol prices in the US

Purely out of curiosity, how much is a US Gallon of Super Unleaded? (100 Octane)

Our gas prices are cheap compared to the rest of the world. In Los Angeles premium gas runs about $3.50 per gallon on average currently.

Really? The UK Imperial Gallon is 4.54 litres, somewhat smaller but prices over here, averages out at 1.23 per litre. Whereas in Kalymnos (Greece) I euro = $1.41 or, 0.83 GBP

Prices in the picture are per Litre. Interesting differences, i might say.

Where are those prices? What's the currency?

US gallon is a fair bit smaller than an Imperial gallon

1 US gallon = 3.78541178 litres

I just bought gas here in the 'burbs of Montreal for $1.204/litre for premium. But, our premium is only 92 or 93 octane. That's the best I can get :(

Regular today was $1.134/litre, less than 90 octane.

The currency is the Euro which Greece comes under, as it's in Europe.
To clarify, prices as follows:

Unleaded '95': 1 e. 65 cents (per litre)
Super LRP: 1 e. 67 cents
Super Unleaded: 1 e. 80 cents
Diesel: 1 e. 36 cents

The cheap stations around here are 3.25 a gallon right now.
Diesel is right about the same price.

Here locally the going rate is 2.59 for regular (87 octane) unleaded. When we travel to the kid's college town, the rate goes up about 10 cents a gallon.

Seems every one of you are doing well for petrol prices. Our VAT increases in January in the UK and there'll be an added Duty hike as well.

If only a Tesla was cheaper!! Haha, can you imagine juicing it up with a back yard wind generator? I could then wave byebye to the petrol station!

Gas is cheap here in the U.S. because we drive big SUV's. If everone in the U.S. drove a Prius our gas prices will be in par with the rest of the world.
