Regular is 2.33. It hurts.
Mid-Grade is like 2.44 or so
Premium is like 2.60

In Amarillo it's about 10 cents/gallon worse.

It was funny when I pulled in behind an Escalde though at the station. 70 bucks on a tank. That HAD to hurt. I can still fill up once a week to a week and half for 20 bucks or so.

109 a litre in Canada

I work at a gas station and we actually buy it for 20.9 cents a litre. Take that for what it's worth.

How much of that markup actually goes towards gasoline taxes?

It's somthing like $1.3/l here.. That's ~$5/US gallon.. And yes, a big amount of that is tax.

But what do I care, I don't have a car. Instead, I pay ~$40 a month for unlimited commuting. :wink:

You know i never checked. I know there is a GVD tax (3.5) + regular tax so it should be around 15%-20%. I'll check the invoice tomorrow.

Around 1.10€/l

1 liters = 0.264172051 US gallons
1 € = 1.24 US$ as of today

That is 1.364 $/l,

5.163 $/gallon.

Yea, I don't take the gas price with such drama.
Honestly, I think it is WAY too cheap...
I am not kidding.

Much higher oil prices might just make things better.
Yeah, there will be initial shock, but over a time economy will adopt how to live with it, there will be much bigger incentive to develop new energy technologies. It will lead to lower CO2 emmision, too.

You why US is the largest CO2 emmiter? Cause they have the cheapest oil.
Look at Europe, you may say that oil is too expensive here, but it result with more efficient use of it. People use more public transport. Is this bad thing?

I just hope, that oil prices will keep soaring and we all will switch to something else. The sooner, the better economy (in the long run) and for environment and for politics (middle east won't be that crucial anymore).

It's going to happen some day anyway...

$2.35/$2.45/$2.55 for 87/89/93 octane. The WRX has to use the good stuff, so a full tank is getting uncomfortably close to $35.
What we have today is way too much pluribus and not enough unum.

It's about $2.33/gal here. Not looking forward to commuting ~40 miles to school in a couple weeks... It would almost be cheaper to live on campus. Doesn't help that I drive a V8 either...
