Spent the past weekend in Trenčín (a medium-size city in western Slovakia). On my way back home, I decided to avoid D1 motorway and try the old primary 1+1 road (61). Although it was Sunday and lot of Slovaks were coming back to Bratislava, I was really surprised how empty the road was. Everyone is just rushing and speeding on motorway, and those former highways running along stay empty.

And by the way, the city government has approved the one-way street I had proposed as the road in front of my house had been becoming unbearably busy. Almost 20 drivers in one hour had not noticed the change and just entered to the wrong way without slowing down. Was really angry and prepared to call the police, but the cop was already there in half of hour.

In Serbia many people are avoiding the old highways,because many of them are not in best condition.Also,they have opened a new road very close to my house which lenght is 8.6km.

with toll price of 0,03€/km it would be insane not to use motorways instead of state roads.

Yes.The toll is not expensive,so many people can afford to use motorways and overall quality of motorways is not so bad,but it's worser then in Croatia which has an great motorway network.

Look at the link Penn's wood gave you.

It isn't and old Kansas, nor a Saskatchewan.
I've already looked at all the American plates of every state but couldn't find it, unfortunately. It seems to me that this plate is not even existing.

The quality indeed varies. Some (especially new) sections are superb, but some (those around Novi Sad) are gross.

I just wanted to point out I have really enjoyed the primary road although it took me few minutes more.

That jump could have end up with much worse consequences.
They later went in a bar for a coffee... they probably had been in several bars before and not for coffee.

I crossed that bridge in 2008, when we did a boat trip around the beautiful Kornati archipelago.

In your contry, which typical location/type of gas station offers lower fuel prices?

Big highway rest areas?

Stations catering mostly to trucks near/in industrial parks?

Fully automated car-only stations in residential areas?

Supermarket-branded stations?

Shopping mall attached stations?

Something else?

In the U.S., highway service areas (as opposed to "rest areas" with bathrooms, tourist information, picnic tables...but no commercial establishments) exist mostly on toll roads and therefore have a bit of a captive audience. I've been assuming for 30 years of driving that toll road service stations would charge a bit more than those in the surrounding areas, although that may not be as true today.

Other than that, it may be a question of brand more than anything else.

In Serbia the cheapest prices are outside the cities.

It depends on location and company. Basically, the ones on motorways and highways are most expensive. On the other hand, those located on city outskirts are the cheapest.

The subnational companies like OMV, Shell, Agip are more expensive than domestic ones.

We have several companies which are incredibly cheap: like Jurki or Batax. Once, a friend of mine has filled up more gasoline than the capacity of his fueltank was. Not suspicious at all. I have never dared to fill my tank there so far.

Last year I had a company car which I refueled from both major petrol stations in Romania and from my company's own fuel tank in the yard (which has been calibrated - I know because I organised that). If the fuel red light turned on and I refilled, at any station I could get 10 liters more than in what the tank should fit in.

Btw... greetings from West Yorkshire, UK.
