Price of petrol/gas in your area?
Just curious about the price differences around the world. Its currently a major issue here in Australia, especially with the Federal Government taking 43% in fuel taxes which is included in our pump price.

Today the pump price in our town is $1.16/litre, which would equate to approx $5.22/gallon:angry:

If you try turning your Aussie dollars into pounds sterling, AussieG, you would REALLY feel the pain.... :mrgreen:

At a local garage yesterday it was 0.93 per litre = 4.546 to the gallon which works out at 4.23 per UK gallon. Although it is probably cheaper in other garages, it will only be by one or two pence per litre.

BTW - the US gallon is smaller than the UK galloon - at 3.785 litres to the gallon so equivalent of approximately US $6.23 @ $1.85 to the Sterling

Very, very expensive in the UK!:sad:

Back "down" to about $2.19 a gallon here. And me with the boat about ready to come out of mothballs... :blink:

It varies from station to station here on Long Island, but, it is averaging about 2.30. The predictions for the summer is upwards of 3.00:excl: :angry: :excl: .

We paid 2.08 for super unleaded yesterday.....here in Indiana (USA). Regular unleaded was 2.13. Last week it was like 2.25 a gallon.

Our gas is running between $2.19 - $2.23 per gal. US dollar. And, i think this is ridiculous. We should'nt have to pay so much for gasoline. :angry: :chef:

Was in Turkey for the last 3 weeks. Gas was $7.03 per gallon American$. Used about $55 per day traveling.

$2.18 a gal. RonJon I hear ya, we have a boat. Filling the truck and boat to go fishing is going to be so much money going out to gas. It's getting a little rediculous!
