Prices in Estonia are different, depending on the region. These prices are at the cheaper end of the spectrum, although not the cheapest you can find:

Nah, Oklahoma is boring, except if you are interested in severe weather. I would prefer to live out west, but that's expensive (not just fuel!)

I like Denver geographically speaking.

Probably the only interesting thing in Oklahoma is OKC.

I like the Ram. I see them from time to time in the Netherlands, mostly in construction / gardening where you need good towing capabilities. They usually run on LPG, which is much cheaper than gasoline and company cars don't pay as much road tax that usually makes LPG not as interesting as it would have otherwise been.

Thanks! ..many of the Dodge pickups you see on the road in the US are 6.7 liter Cummings diesel powered.

Last night I fueled up my Toyota for $1.87 a gallon.

Diesel?

So diesel is becoming more and more used, in the US?

I remember from my trip there, that in many service stations they didn't even sell it.

I like Ram too - in Canada a colleague has a 2009 model, my father a 1998 model. I saw a Ram on the R1 Ring Antwerpen once

Rams aren't common here but they're not rare enough that each time I see one I gasp in wonder.

Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra are the most I see in Belgium. The F-150 is a beast. If there is surface parking next to a supermarket you can see it standing out from 10 rows away

It seems that there are some gas stations in my province where the gas counter already runs faster than the amount one (In other words, diesel mostly but at some places 95 gas too have dropped below the €1/l mark), mostly unmanned stations, called here 'estaciones fantasma', literally 'ghost stations'. Anyway, I prefer to look at Repsol stations (a major brand, and thus better gas ), I've seen one which had diesel at €1.029/l...

I saw $1.68 /gal (0.38 Euro/liter) in Kansas City, Missouri today. According to Gas Buddy the lowest in the city is $1.61

Cheapest average by state right now:

Missouri 1.733
Oklahoma 1.793
Kansas 1.835
Texas 1.875
Michigan 1.885

Here around Philly we have several choices - NJ has the lowest gas tax among the tri-state area, our regular is in the low $2.xx range at the moment, Delaware is about 15 cents higher, and PA about 10-12 cents higher still. PA just (1/1/2015) increased their state gas tax by 10 cents. A few stations are at 1.99 or 1.98/gallon. I expect the prices to continue to fall for a while.

Off to Mom's in North Jersey (well, North-ish...) Saturday and got the fuel warning light as I approached home last trip so I'll be passing through Camden and Cherry Hill or Runnemede. Hoping, just on principle, I can fill up for less than $2.00 a gallon.

Yesterday I filled the tank at 1,409€/litre.

My bike (you can see it in signature, FruFru) has a 14-litre tank, and 20€ at 1,409€ are 14,19 litres. It was quite awesome to pay for 15€ and get more fuel than a couple of months ago, when with 20€ I only got 11/12 litres max.

saw an F-250 driving down the highway in the Netherlands in 2011. Caught me by surprise, I had semi expected to see an F-150 there, but not an F-250!
You seem to see a lot less euro market cars in Canada than I saw american market cars in Europe. Maybe I just don't notice it here.. I have seen a couple of little Japanese minivans booting it around the city before though.

Diesel is popular in large trucks in North America, and always has been. the super heavy duty pickups have always run on diesel.

Gas is 88.9 downtown today, means its probably somewhere in the $0.85 range in the suburbs.

Americans were way more clever than Europeans in the common sense for fuel use and its adverse effects of pollution.

Here in Europe, most countries favoured for decades very nasty and dirty diesel vehicles, even for small town cars, by reducing taxes and even by subsidizing them, but introducing very high taxes for gasoline .
You Americans kept big vehicles, and diesel where it should belong: large vehicles and trucks; you introduced the lead free gasoline and were the first for compulsory catalytic converter already in the 1970's .
Meanwhile, in Europe we were not stopping criticizing you, mostly by jealousy, that you were the biggest polluter, as if Europeans were all "green" .
