$2.899 at an Exxon in Mount Ephraim, N.J., this afternoon.

Now in the Albany, N.Y., area, where it seems to be running around $3.50.

Around $1.20 here, dropped $0.10 in the last month or so. Hey, I'm not complaining, especially since its a long weekend (Canadian Thanksgiving). Just kind of sad that $1.20 is considered "cheap" now. In US terms thats $4.58 a gallon.. Hard to believe that only 6 years ago people were amazed when gas went above $1.00.. ($3.78)

I can't imagine getting gas for $0.75 cents a litre like Penn's Woods got there.

It hurts so hard, we are at 1.349 CAD per litre here in Montreal ($4.54 USD per US gallon) I can drive easily to New Jersey in the day...

But for the first time in ages there was no 10 cent/L spike this week. On Tues or Wed I tanked at $1.379 expecting to see $1.46 the next morning. But no... 1.369 and today 1.349... I'm all annoyed though the difference realistically in my pocket is approx 2 bucks... no wait... $3... friggin hell

Yeah... Same here, where in 2008 fuel was 1.10€/liter, and just 6 years later jumped to 1,85€/L, that are 9 US$ a gallon.

Funny how people's perception of 'expensive' changes across the western world (where incomes are similar). 1.349 CAD is almost half of what you would pay in the Netherlands. (€ 0.95 vs € 1.80).

Yeah, those Canadian prices are very cheap, might as well drive around in circles all day in a Hummer at those prices!

OK, but they normally ask $38 CAD ($28 on sale) for 24x 33 cL bottles Heineken in the grocery store, and we are cheapest in the country

What are common price differences in the United States between a cheap and expensive gas station in a nearby (similarly taxed) area?

In the Netherlands it's usually in the range of 10 - 12 cents per liter, or $ 0.55 per gallon difference. That means a motorway service station could charge $ 8.36 per gallon, but an unmanned station could charge $ 7.80 per gallon.

In Italy it's the same, more or less.

Near my house there a couple of manned service station at 1.82/1.85€/liter and an unmanned station selling euro 95 at 1,689€/liter.

Of course the more you get close to that unmanned service station the more the prices go down: a normal station 300m away from that sells euro 95 at 1,759€/l.

In Chicago I saw $4 in downtown and around $3.5 in outer parts of Chicago (in Chicago proper, not suburb).

I've been giving a range for my area.. Usually it is .15 to 25 cents difference or less.

If you so wish visit the site in the link below for the full gambit of fuel prices in the USA;

That $2.899 I paid the other day was right across a side street (thus on the same side of the highway) from another station charging the same price. I deliberately drove NJ 168 from the Walt Whitman Bridge to the Turnpike because I needed to fill up for my trip and knew it would be far cheaper over there than in Philadelphia. Other prices along that corridor were in the $2.90s.

Up here - along US 1 in what is called the "Mid-Coast" area of Maine - I've seen $3.149 to $3.319 over the last few days. But those are the outliers; most places are charging $3.189 to $3.299. So about a ten-cent-per-gallon range. I'd say that's typical. Stations at toll-road service areas are going to run a bit higher, because they can.

EDIT: I don't think I've ever actually used Gas Buddy.

Here supermarkets tend to be the cheapest, BP, Esso, Shell, Texaco etc service stations in most areas seem to be £0.02-£0.03 per litre more and service stations in motorway rest areas are the most expensive, maybe up to £0.10 more expensive than the supermarkets. 99.99% of stations are unmanned, it's very rare indeed to find an attended station.

gas dropped $0.035 here in the last 24 hours, and it keeps going.. Regular price yesterday was $1.199, this morning was $1.179, and this evening was $1.165. I saw $1.149 on Monday though, but that was out in rural nowhere and not in the city.

Prices have recently dropped in Ireland too.

At my local petrol station, diesel is now €1.40/l and 95 unleaded €1.50. This is about 4c cheaper than a few weeks ago.

In Ireland there aren't any unmanned stations, the margins on fuel are so small that retailers make their money on the convenience store side of the business.

Also, there is no price premium at motorway services, which is nice!

We are going on a short road trip tomorrow into Illinois. I'll give the fuel prices when I return tomorrow evening.

When I'm in Aber I don't have to fill up, last filled up about three weeks ago, so I did a little search on a certain website. There are three petrol stations in Aberystwyth, two Texaco and one Morrisons. At all of them the price of petrol is 129.9p a litre. Interesting.

That is $2.07 or so and €1.62

Back in Staines it's 123.9p.
