Exchange rates I guess. The value of the Icelandic króna fell dramatically.

Where holidays to Iceland used to be quite expensive, prices have dropped a lot since the financial crisis began. If it continues like this, we can expect reports of over ten roadtrips to Iceland

^ If there will be any fuel to buy.

Anyway, I checked, and Bosnia, Bulgaria, Estonia and Latvia all have more expensive fuel than Slovenia. Only Macedonia is a cent or two cheaper (and of course Russia, Belarus and Ukraine (I don't know about Azerbaijan etc.)).

Fuel price today at my local gas station: 0

Us (plus another 500 or so cars) got free gasoline for an hour. Toward the end there was not really any line so pretty much anyone could go in, get free gas, and leave within 5 min. It was a special campaign; sponsors were even giving away free chocolates, coupons, etc.

Why do they never do that in the Netherlands? Well, I guess because the whole country would run there to get some gas. We're quite greedy, you know.

I was quite pleased because just by chance our tank was pretty much empty. Their limit was 100 liters too, so pretty much any car could get their tanks full!

The special occasion btw was that 7-11 was taking over most of Shell gas stations' little stores, and this one was the first one.

If I think of it, I'll check Loenersloot's gas station tonight. I still have 25 kms to do by bike tonight

Incredible!
Here in Italy I've never heard about something nearly similar to this...

Instead of that you can have your 50 euro eaten by these marvelous machines during siesta

I once had a situation like that, good the stuff has returned in time because I was just about to ram it with my car

Whaaaat? I can't believe I missed that. I drive a Peugeot 607 with an 80 litre tank and it was almost empty yesterday. The cheapest 95 oct in Stockholm (other from his insane offer) is at 10,38 SEK (~€1,04) so I would have saved at some €80 on gas. A full tank usually gets me through a month. Damnit!

Buffalo Gas Prices Highest in 48 States
WNED News

BUFFALO (2008-11-07) Gasoline prices continue to tumble across Upstate New York -- except here, in the Buffalo area.

While some gas stations outside Syracuse are selling gas for as little as $2.24 per gallon, the average price in the Buffalo area is about $2.85.

The national average is $2.31 a gallon.

According to the AAA, Buffalo area motorists are paying the highest gas prices in the continental United States. Only Alaska and Hawaii are reporting higher prices.

Industry officials in the past have blamed the higher prices on distribution costs and high local taxes.

© Copyright 2008, wned
That's about €0.587/liter for our European friends here. Prices are falling like a rock, but still significantly higher than the nation.

Many African countries lack the purchasing power or foreign reserves to buy oil in large quantities, so except for the oil producers (like Nigeria, Egypt, Algeria, Sudan...), gasoline tends to be pretty expensive in many countries in Africa. Factor the much lower incomes, and makes it even more unaffordable.

A few of them also have high taxes too.

These low fuel prices scare the crap out of me. Seeing how they fall, it feels like something huge is going to happen. I would prefer a healthy economy with $2/litre any time over what we have now...
