Diesel price is dropping in Italy too. These days it's not hard to find in Brescia prices like 1,55 €/l (7.63 $/gal), while a couple of months ago it was 10 cents more expensive.

A strong Mexican peso and regular increases to the fuel price have caused the Premium fuel to reach 1 USD per liter (3.785 USD per gallon)

Wow. That is just 2 eurocents above the diesel price here. And my province has the cheapest gas in Mainland Spain. I've seen it dipping below €1.30 mark this week (€1.299, actually, today it was €1.309/l), while 95 petrol has dropped below €1.40, as I refueled this morning CEST for €1.389/l. Didn't saw the LPG price, though.

Not many diesel passenger cars in the US as compared to gas powered cars.

Any way, here in Cedar Rapids IA gas jumped up in price from a couple of days ago from $3.15 a gallon to $3.29 a gallon for unleaded plus.

Britain.

Supermarkets reveal fuel price cuts



Quote:
Four major supermarkets are cutting the price of petrol and diesel.

Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons all announced that from Saturday they will be reducing petrol and diesel by up to 2p a litre.

The cut - the second this week - is in response to lower wholesale fuel prices.

I don't know what your image of Europe is, but over here 85% of passenger travel is by car. At substantially higher gas prices.

I've not been to Europe since 1981. Do most people drive to work or take public transit? Or does that , like in the US, depend upon where you live? Thanks!

Wow!. I think the highest grade of gas available in my area is 92 octane... Super Unleaded. I use unleaded plus 89 octane.

Europe uses RON for octance levels while the US uses AKI, so Euro 95 is 91 in the US, and unleaded 89 would probably be 93 in Europe.

In the countryside above 90% drive to work (I mean 90% of people that can't get to work by foot or bicycle). In rich nations it's above 98%, in poor nations lower, but even there above 75% drive.
In big cities it vary heavily, public transport has always a higher split. In London, Paris, Frankfurt/Main or Madrid a majority uses public transport, in most cities, however, only 25-40% uses public transport and the majority drives a car.

Thank you for your insight.

Here's an article dated 2007 on how Americans get to work.
