Israel:

Prices can vary from station to station. This is the range of prices shown by a website that surveys stations around the country.

95: €1.26 - €1.30

96 (formerly leaded. For the past few years unleaded with some kind of additive for old cars): €1.27 - €1.31

98: €1.39 - €1.60

Diesel: €1.29 - €1.64

Yeah, it's almost $9 dollars a gallon right now in NL
My dad told me that when he first went to the US (in 1972) a gallon of fuel costed $0,29. Reminds me of Oman

OK, but in Poland we pay the same for fuel and the average salaries are quite low - 900EUR

For example, if I earn around 2400 - 3000 EUR a month (which is A LOT in Poland), in Western Europe it isn't that much, not to say little.


And what would you say now, huh? Still unhappy?

Yeah, we can pay $ 9 per gallon better than most central European countries. However, fuel price is not our total car costs. Road tax is usually between € 360 and € 1200 per year depending on fuel type. Besides that, there's also a high registration fee of 42% over the catalogue price. I don't know how that's done in Poland or other nations. I know Denmark has an even higher registration fee, but wages are much higher there.

@PLH: I'm only comparing to the US. In Poland it is a bit cheaper than in NL, but I agree with you that it is relatively more expansive in Poland.

Hmm 3000 EUR a month (especially if this is after taxes, but even if not) is a very good salary even in the US and Canada.

If that's after taxes, that's $70,000 / year, which is significantly above average here, but even before taxes it's over 50K But of course, living costs in Western Europe are higher than in North America, so that balances things out somewhat.

But 900 EUR is low of course.

€ 900 is considered a low-income/parttime income in the Netherlands. I earned about € 1200 with 32 hrs a week at the beginning of my career.

It's not that easy to compare. Purchasing parity index must be considered as well. € 900 in the Netherlands is not equal to € 900 in Poland.

Czech:

Natural 95: 31.20 Kc/l (€ 1.31)
Diesel: 32.52 Kc/l (€ 1.36)
LPG: 15.90 Kc/dm3 (€ 0,67) (this is not average but my last purchase)

Yeah, but that advantage is going away so much over the years.

In 2002, I remember seeing gas for $0.34/liter. ($1.29/gal), the price has tripled in 6 years.

Last tank I fueled was 3.899/gal (1.02/L)

Right now it's at 3.879/gal. For all the Americans, do you guys have Costco's/Sam's Clubs with gas stations and do you use them? Their gas is about 5-15 cents lower than brand name gas.
