On the way up here: $3.339 per gallon (for "regular") at the neighborhood Sunoco last Wednesday (and for a couple of weeks before that); don't know what happened between then and yesterday (I was at my mother's); $3.399 yesterday and $3.439 today.

Same thing for me !
Diesel: 1.30 €/liter at the Total last week, and 1.34 € this week.
Don't understand why. They love to play at the Stock Exchange.

For some reason, prices have spiked big time in the last two weeks.

Connecticut now has the highest average gas prices in the Continental US, even higher than California. WTF.

I watching norc.hu's street view. Images in BudaPest are from 2009 and fuel is wherever sold at 260 HUF.

I've been in Hungary twice in last month and I saw fuel is now sold at 420 HUF!!!

OMG!!! That's impressive if we watch to Hungarian wages!!!

Up 24 cents a gallon at my neighborhood Sunoco between the Fourth and yesterday. (Today, who knows? Haven't been out yet. But I'd bet it's up again.)

EDIT: Are those statistics state by state? Because I'd bet the District of Columbia or New York City are worse.

Yes. Places like NYC and Chicago (not DC) are higher but other parts of their respective states pull the average down.

There are several stations near $3.90 around my house.

Of course, I avoid them and go to areas where prices are significantly lower. Paid $3.65 the other day.

Diesel fuel is virtually similar in France and the Netherlands; about € 1,50 on motorways and € 1,39 at unmanned self-service stations.

I didn't bother posting it (for one thing, it was in De Standaard), but there was an article the other day about how often the VAB (Vlaamse Automobilistenbond?) needs to bail out Belgians traveling abroad who've somehow managed to fill their cars with the wrong fuel. For some unknown reason, it's happening much more often this July than last....

Amazing how cheap gas is in the US.

3.90 $/gallon is around 0.71 €/l

Yesterday I had my motorcycle refilled - 18.05 € for 11 l. Thats 1.64 €/l
or 231% of US prices

Some BP stations here in Cedar Rapids have dropped their unleaded plus down to $3.329 a gallon.

Our gas would be much cheaper if there was no so much tax on gas.

Americans have the lowest tax on gasoline in the developed world. No reason to complain if you insist on driving 15 mpg pickup trucks.

The sign alternates back and forth between francs and euros, I take it? Do lots of places in Switzerland do that? (And is that euro price just a direct conversion of the franc price according to the exchange rate of the moment or a price for people who have only euros on them?*)

*As I type that, I'm wondering if it makes sense in a time when most people pay by card....

I get 30 mpg in a 2002 Mitsubishi. And didn't spend the weekend pumping diesel fumes into the air above the Rhône as part of the annual continent-wide traffic jam Europeans "insist on" engaging in.

:-P


EDIT: Make that a 2002 Mitsubishi with battery trouble.

Huge price difference between countries: Today in France the lowest price for 95 gas I saw was €1.608/l in Aramits (Southwestern France). In the gas station by the E07 motorway just North of Huesca, Spain, the price was €1.407/l.

That's how we roll. Pick-up trucks, mini-vans and SUVs.. many people can afford them. I don't want one.

I have a '03 Toyota Camry with only 75K miles on it and I get 29mpg normally. On the open road, we went to Minneapolis about 6 weeks ago, I got 32mpg.

I've never owned a pick-up truck. I did have a full size Ford van conversion about 21 years ago.
