There's always someone "minding the store" here in the US no matter the day date or time. If the station is closed & unmanned the pumps are off and you can't get gas.

Personally I always go inside and pay.

You can find a lot of unmanned gasstations in Denmark. I find them efficient. If you do not want to by something else then gas, it is the fastest way to do it. You can pay with DKK, €, credit cards and local "gascard".

The fuel price difference between the Netherlands and Belgium is quite big, almost 25 cents per liter. They calculated that even a 100 kilometer return trip could save you some money (obviously the saving is minimal and you don't want to drive an hour or more to save € 1 on a tank of gas).

But if you live close to the border, a short trip could save € 10 or more.

I've noticed that many Dutch fuel stations don't even attempt to compete with Belgian and German prices and just charge the full price.

For example the last fuel station in the Netherlands along A2 towards Liège prices Euro 95 at € 1.709 and less than 20 kilometers down the road there is a Shell Express in Liège along the main road that prices Euro 95 at € 1.343.

Here in Turin diesel is around 1.35 €/l... except for one station, which charges the ungodly amount of 1.78 €/l... I wonder how he manages to stay in business...

I just refilled with regular petrol near Milan and it was 1,5€/l. The prices have been rising constantly in the past few weeks...

I was in Italy this week near Trento and was shocked by the fuel prices.

Fuel price differences in the US are quite interesting.

From a low of $2.04 in South Carolina a gallon, to a high of nearly $3.00 a gallon in California. Gas is well over $3 a gallon in Hawaii.

$2.04 / US gallon =
0.51 Euros / litre

$3.00 / US gallon =
0.75 Euros / litre

Check "Gas Buddy" map. Just click on "GAS PRICE MAP".

I paid $ 6.17 per gallon (€ 1.53/l) in the Netherlands today, which is relatively cheap (I've seen some nearing € 1.70/l or $ 6.85 per gallon).

However the exchange rate fluctuates. Around 2008 we had fuel near € 1.80 and at that time it was over $ 10.00 per gallon.

I just paid 1,179 EUR (without discount it would've been 1,239) at Orlen in Vilnius for unleaded 98 (I rarely fill with 95, which is around 1,19 EUR without discount). When you fill the tank with 80 liters, it hurts! Diesel is around 0,10 EUR cheaper than Unleaded 95. LPG 0,58 without discount.
How quickly I'd like to start driving again to Belarus so I can get the same for around 0,60 EUR... Only 30km from here!

why not? for 30 km at 50 eurocent x 80 L surely it is economic the trip to save 40 Euro
is the border crossing too onerous?

You gotta have a visa.
To give you an idea:
A single-entry visa with a French passport is 60 EUR, whereas the same with a Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian or Polish passport is 25 EUR (35 for a double-entry). During summer and fall it's O.K. because I drive there to a village. But out of those seasons it's better to think it twice.

How active is Orlen in Lithuania? Do they have many stations in your country? And do you have your own refinery in Lithuania, or do they import the fuel from Poland?

In Poland we have two refineries - in Płock and Gdańsk - and even though they both belong to state companies: Orlen and Lotos respectively, each having a chain of petrol stations, the foreign chains (BP, Statoil, Lukoil, Shell) also get the fuel for their stations in Poland from those refineries, they don't import any fuel (at all or almost at all - but from what I know, even the "premium" additions, although individual for the company, are added to the fuel from a Polish refinery).

By the way, why 95? From what I know, most cars are nowadays designed specifically for 95 and there is no real improvement if you use 98.
