Any idea why gas is so expensive in Italy?
Huge taxes and lack of competition?

Both.

Italy already has the 2nd/3rd highest price in Europe without taxes, so the level of competition must be very low.

And the government everytime there is an emergency (natural disaster, financial crisis...) creates a new tax that is never removed.

Well, to my mind, the combination of high taxes on fuel and the development of an efficient public transport network and bike infrastructure is the right step towards a sustainable transport system.

Good! I was stunned by gas price when I came there in June and July!

420 HUF/L is like 1,47 €/L but considering Hungarian wages is a crazy price!

This weekend (note: Italian weekend deals ended up in September) for the first time since last December when our "beloved" Monti put a 0,082 € excise, Super Unleaded 95 went under 1,70 €/L

1,695 €/L at my nearest Esso station!
