This sure isn't good news, and I'm sure the prices will continue to go up until summer.
I *wish* I could buy gas for $1.74 per gallon around here. It's $2.12 at the station up the street.
And yet, demand for SUVs isn't going down. Ugh.
thats nothing, in the uk petrol (as we like to call it ) is around 80 pence a litre ($1.50 roughly) or around £3.60 ($6.70) a gallon
though I have a feeling that a gallon in the UK is diffent from in the US...
(and I got my figures off the 'net, I don't drive so I'm not really up to speed on this. seems about right though)
but the point is, fule in the US is very cheep
That $1.738 is almost about what's going on around in Portland ME and NW of there.
We are paying $1.739 here in Boston, self serve regular.
sheesh you are all lucky. I am paying about 2.40 a gallon here in santa monica ca. My car requires premium gas, but still.. 2.40 kills this commuting college student
Gas is $1.63 for 89 Octane here in St. Louis MO
*fingers crossed* One more year. I just have to hold out one more year before I get my Prius then I can flip the oil companies the bird.
$1.57 in Alabama, $1.49 some pumps, dont expect prices to ever go down, the '70s was a test. Based on the Paris oil summit of 2000, basically all studies have showed we have already hit our production peak. Why are we going into the tar pits of Canada? They said it would be too costly, why are we mining in Alaska? Why are we in Iraq?
America's prices are still cheap! In Japan, we pay just under a dollar per liter, making it about $3.75 per gallon! And that's without price surges.
Dude..I flip them off every morning as I pass the mobile refinery in my nice black prius....Placed 350 miles before I refueled for the first time....
Its hurting here in NYC...
They are high... way to high.
> America's prices are still cheap
ummm, because the government under writes our costs... because America has screwed up by designing communities that have based our whole economy on the ability to drive anything and everyone anywhere... (plus the promise to pay off debt and a housing boom, those three items is what drives America today)
I love my 1991 Geo Metro. It still get 50 mpg highway!
Unfortunately, if it ever goes kaput, there's no comparable replacement on the US market (I only paid $7k for it brand new).
My car uses a ton of gas and it doesn't bother me at all. Maybe because I don't care about the future.
San Diego has the highest gas prices in the nation, according to the Lundberg report.
OK, OK...that was a bit of an exaggeration...this is the real thing. (y'all jealous of my home town now?)
grrr why are the prices here in california so much higher... how can one state be selling gas for a full dollar cheaper PER GALLON than here?
i can be happy my car gets about 30 miles to a gallon on average. i go around 300 miles before i need to throw in another 10 gallons
My last receipt works out at $6.55 per gallon. (£0.78 per litre)
That's in the UK, one of the highest taxed fuels in the entire galaxy.
So do not trouble me with this pocket calculator stuff of a couple of bucks a gallon!!
about the same in finland - 1.15 euros per litre, 95 octane standard.
about 1 euro per liter in austria
that sums up to ca. 4,5 $ per gallon
but they prices wer already higher a year ago i guess 1,2 euro last year per liter
Roger Hedgecock, R.W. Talkshow host has it under control
Hey, Roger has it all under control in San
Diego...of course its Bill Clinton's fault.
Simple huh? When it goes to $3.00 a gallon
then will it be the Chaney Energy Policy
he established behind closed doors in January of 2003?? Remember readers,
most of the cost of gasoline in Europe
is tax...diesel fuel is about half the cost. Thats why many cars in Europe from Mercedes to Ford run on diesel.
Who has what under control???
Gas where I live is between 1.65-1.80 a gallon, depending on where you go. I am still considering getting a more fuel efficient car. I currently get about 20 m.p.g., but I'm tired of giving a good chunk of my money to the gas companies.
Yeah, everyone complains about EU's gas prices, but what is your commute? Here in the States, you have to figure the average is 30-40 mins to work, one way. then to the store, add another 10-15 mins, then to a gas station, another 10 mins. We spend a lot of time in our cars, and no one has health insurance provided for by the Government.
