Current fuel prices in Norway can be found here:
Benzin: http://www.dinside.no/php/oko/bensin...php?pristype=1
Diesel: http://www.dinside.no/php/oko/bensin...php?pristype=2

Benzin has a price range from NOK 14,15 to 15,37 / € 1,81 - 1,97.
Diesel is from 12,75 to 14,01 / € 1,63 - 1,80

Funny enough, both the lowest and the highest prices are found in Oslo.
I wouldn't rely on those numbers as anything but a sample. Norway has a restorative fuel pricing market so prices go down gradually and then rapidly up at sites in competitive markets. Norway is full of isolated towns with extremely high distribution costs due to difficult delivery conditions. Often these same markets have no competition and thus no reason to discount prices from the local list price which includes distribution costs. The locals can choose to buy locally or take an expensive ferry in winter storm conditions to some larger community with some competition. The chain called Best exemplifies this kind of station. If you think fuel is expensive in Oslo then you haven't been to Best Vega or Best Tana where fuel is often 60 ore to 2 kroner more than in a town close to a terminal.

Also, the city of Tromso has a local fuel tax of 90 ore instead of the toll that most Norwegian towns have to pay for local road improvement. Thus they are also usually quite a bit more expensive than other towns.

E85 has signficantly less energy content than E5 or E10 so it is not really all that good of a deal without incentives.

E30 will probably be the next wave in the US as engines can be optimized to run on it better than low blends like E15 or high blends like E85

Our cars where I work run off E85... they seem to run fine to me. Of course they are engineered to do so.

If the engine has been modified, which is a relatively minor matter, the motorist usually won't notice much difference. The energy density is lower though so you'll have to fill the tank more often and means that although the price is usually a bit lower, you need to be aware of that when comparing to regular unleaded if you have a flexi-fuel vehicle. You might think you're getting a good deal but end up paying more per unit of energy.

Our gas skyrocketed yesterday from a high of $3.33 a gallon to $3.69 a gallon for unleaded plus.

The claim for the price spike is fear over war in the mideast.

Always surprised at European fuel prices. In Brisbane, Australia we currently pay $1.45/litre ($1.45 Australian=.98 euro). That's for 91 octane unleaded, 95 octane is usually +5cents/litre, and 98 octane 10c/litre dearer. Diesel is $1.50/litre and LPG 85c/litre (.57 Euro). Diesel cars are not that common in Australia (but their popularity is slowly on the up), 6 cylinder an V8 cars are still popular, and very few cars under 1800cc are sold here.

There is a trend in Europe with smaller engines, because they are more powerful than 10 - 15 years ago. Nowadays there are even mid-size family cars with a 1.2 liter engine. Full-size family cars with engines over 2.0 L are quite rare.

We have a new law in Germany which forces each single petrol station to report their fuel prices to the authorities. Changes have to be registered within five minutes.

The registration office (called Markttransparenzstelle) delivers the data to various websites where the consumer can see in real time which station in their area is cheapest. I have a new app on my cell phone

Super E10 was at €1,54 - 1,55 per litre in my region today
In Hamburg it was from € 1,47 / ltr. Quite a difference.

Dropped six cents a gallon overnight at the neighborhood Sunoco. Now $3.439. Got as high as $3.679 in late August but has been dropping steadily since.

Our unleaded plus also dropped by six cents a gallon over nite. It is now $3.12 a gallon for unleaded plus an 10% ethanol blend.

Priced "dropped" also here in Italy. From 1,920€/liter now we're down to 1,780€/liter for the unleaded 95. Prices went up because of the Syrian crysis, but now it seems to have been resized.
