This morning I refueled my car. The gas station had 95 gas posted at €1.305/l, but there was a discount if paying with cash. So I paid €1.275/l . Later, during my trip I saw 95 gas as low as what I paid.

Most places in my mother's area are charging - wait for it -

$2.599

Saw a $2.579, and it's $2.479 at the Costco, but I wonder if they sell to non-members.

I believe that's somewhere around 67 cents U.S. per liter.

I spotted LPG / Autogas at € 0.579 per liter in the Netherlands. That is a full 25 cents below the national price.

€ 0.579/l = $ 2.72 per gallon

However it is quite difficult to refuel late in the evening. I was driving with my father, who has a BMW that runs on LPG, but they don't sell LPG at unmanned stations, and most manned stations are closed after 9 p.m., so they don't sell LPG after that time either. We passed like 9 fuel stations on N35 from Almelo to Zwolle and we weren't able to refuel at any of them.

It was a 100 km return trip, (a third of the range you can get on a tank of LPG) and it is quite strange you can't refuel anywhere along a major highway.

You can refuel LPG at night, but only along motorways and a few selected 24/7 fuel stations elsewhere.

LPG is declining fast in the Netherlands. A decade ago or so there were half a million LPG-powered cars, which is down to 170,000 as of recently, despite LPG being over € 1 per liter cheaper than gasoline.

There are several reasons.

The fuel tax on LPG has been increased in recent years, by over € 0.20 per liter. Back in the middle 2000s LPG was as cheap as € 0.35 per liter, right now the average national price is over € 0.80, though LPG is usually discounted by 20 cents or so (more than petrol or diesel).

Second, many oldtimers ran on LPG, a cheap fuel, and used to be exempt of the road tax if they were more than 25 years old. Because a part of the 'oldtimer' fleet consisted of old wrecks which could be driven almost free compared to petrol and diesel, they scrapped the oldtimer exemption. For most owners, this means a road tax of around € 500 per year.

Thirdly, LPG cars tend to lose their value on the second-hand market quicker than petrol cars. They are generally seen as unreliable after 150,000 - 200,000 km, so you write off more money than with petrol cars.

Also, LPG installation cost have soared considerably. 10 years ago you could retrofit a petrol car to LPG for around € 1000, but this has reportedly gone up to around € 2500 in recent years, which means it takes longer to repay the investment.

Another factor is the increased fuel efficiency of petrol cars. Many more petrol cars get 5-5.5 L/100 km than 10 or 15 years ago. This makes LPG cars less competitive than before, despite the large difference in fuel price.

LPG is widely available, there are more than 2,000 filling stations and LPG availability abroad has also improved (especially in Germany). So that is not the problem (despite the lack of operational LPG filling stations at night).
