    seeing as there are lots of nationalities on here just wondered how much you guys pay for fuel/gas etc etc

    we (Englanders) pay in the region of £0.90 per litre or £3.96 per gallon, so approx 6.90USD or 9.17AUD per gallon

    Running about 2.45/gallon US where I am (East Coast). It's been a lot higher in the past.

    Okay, I live in the Philadelphia Metropolitan area and gas fluctuates quite a bit here. Right after Katrina we saw prices for REGULAR skyrocket as high as 3.69 - before that I don't recall them breaking two dollars, but I could be wrong.

    A week ago, we saw regular prices of 2.20 to 2.39 or so, now we're seeing a lot closer to 2.40 to 2.70 - I guess it has something to do with the Iran situation. I don't think it's fair that they raise the price PRE-EMPTIVELY but that's how greedy oil companies operate. (Is there a barfing face I can insert here?)

    I have to fill up tomorrow as my Civic is down to 1/3 of a tank - - - I'm hoping to find a price closer to 2.40.

    Before leaving on vacation last Sunday I saw gas prices around us range anywhere from $2.21/gallon up to $2.50. During our week here in Salt Lake, we've seen gas range between $2.11 to $2.25. I would be much happier with that kind of range. There's just something about being able to keep the overall cost under $30 per fill up that is somewhat comforting....

    Hate seems like a strong word. We ceratinly pay over the odds for our petrol - you could always try getting about in other ways. There's plenty that's good about the UK and if you're not happy with it the door's over there!

    Also bear in mind that a UK gallon is smaller than a US gallon.

    1 US gallon = 0.8327 Imperial gallon.

    $2.79/gal of diesel here on the Oregon coast, but then I get 48-52mpg, so my money is getting me a bit further than many. I bought this car to get good mileage when diesel was actually 20-40¢ less than regular unleaded, now it's 20-40¢ more! :mad:

    Jeez, what sort of car do you drive? I can fill up my BMW (1977) on about £30-35.

    If you want an alternative, get your car converted to LPG. It cost about £1000 for my Dad to convert his 4.0 Cherokee to LPG, but he got that money back within a year because it's so cheap (35-35p a litre). Makes it the equivalent of a car doing 30mpg, instead of the normal (embarrassing) 15mpg.

    Sorry but I'm pretty sure you're wrong. According to another source (google for "convert imperial gallon to gallon") 1 Imperial gallon = 1.20095042 US gallon.

    ...yeah, after promising an investigation into the oil companies' high profits after Katrina. Kinda sickening.

    I think we've got our wires crossed,what you've said means a Imperial gallon is larger.(by 20%)
