Still too early to say there's a trend. Oil inventories are at record highs.

Paid today 5,18 RON for 1L of EURO95, that's 1.17 euro/l. It's going up.

Yes, the oil price bounces up and down by several dollars at the time.

There hasn't changed much. Demand is still tepid (China seems to be slowing down as well) and the OPEC keeps producing, fearing they would otherwise be losing market share.

I've read the 'Orinoco Belt' in Venezuela has as much heavy crude reserves as the rest of the world in light crude combined.

It's gone up to $2.17 here. But this means I pay $2 more when filling up, not the end of the world.

I still don't think this rally has legs. The OPEC countries are still producing a million more barrels a day than the markets demand. Plus, if oil does go back up, shale production will increase again, therefore causing another glut that will cause prices to collapse yet again.

OPEC's greed for keeping oil high for so long has come back to bite them hard.

Yes it is. Things are tough all over. I have to bust open the grand kids piggy banks to pay for gas....just kidding.

I've heard no complaints about the price of gas yet....Why should anyone complain when gas was over $3.22 a gallon back in August?!..Trust me folks will complain if it gets that high again.

$ 3 or $ 4 per gallon is cheap. How many other countries with income levels similar to the United States have such low fuel prices? Even in Canada it's more expensive. Maybe some Gulf countries.

(Seriously, if you're used to paying $20 to fill the tank and it suddenly costs $40 - as happened in 2008 - and you're one of those people who's working hard for a modest salary and you'll never get to Europe in your life, the fact that it would cost you $80 in Europe is sort of irrelevant....)

I don't think it's above $4 in Canada now.

As for the rest of your comment, see my preceding post.

Don't be an ass. People were giving up jobs over that.

I still remember this article:

The high European gas prices are offset by better fuel economy. My previous car was a diesel car, and I found out that $ 7.50 per gallon (diesel) would cost me the same 'per mile' as $ 4 (gasoline) in an American car.

The American culture of the gas guzzler is ridiculous.

It's very annoying to read that "Oh, fuel is very cheap in the US" comments again and again. I suppose we all know very well that fuel is in the US significantly cheaper than in Europe, it does not have any sense to write comments about it every day.
This thread has the title 'Your fuel prices', so I think it's very convenient that some American forum members write here how much fuel does cost there where they live.

To be fair to Americans other than cars what other transport doo they have? Outside of major cities Iv always got the impression that the U.S. Transport infrastructure is rather terrible.

Talking of diesel, I learned last night (when looking at Wawa's website for an aside in the Non-Interstates thread :-) ) that New Jersey's no-self-service law doesn't apply to diesel.
