Back in June/July...diesel was about $5/gallon (€1.06/liter in the value of the Euro today, much lower before).
Yeah, too much diesel seems to make a city stink. When I went to Italy last year I noticed the air seemed foul because you can smell diesel everywhere. Kinda like the same smell I noticed when going to Nigeria back in 1994. I do however love the faint smell of diesel when I'm driving on the freeway. I've always called it the "interstate highway" smell personally but it's actually the trucks.

Here in Austin I bought gas for $1.89 a gallon but have seen as low as $1.83. I can't wait to see it go even lower back to like $1.09 a gallon. I'm not sure why diesel is much more expensive but it's running at least a dollar more than regular unleaded here in town.

come on, it's silly, in USA cars consume in average 15 or more l/100 km. and that should be 2-3 times more exhaust gases than european diesels.

In Portugal they vary from company to company.
The cheapest unleaded 95 petrol at the moment is €1.065 and the most expensive €1.279
and the cheapest diesel is €0.975, the most expensive being €1.151.

I can't believe you filled up your tank cheaper than me (0.976 € ). The Netherlands is known for its expensive fuel, whereas Slovenia for its cheap fuel (in EU).

Chris got diesel, you probably got euro 95 or sth. Or do you have diesel as well? Anyway, Euro 95 was €1,20/L in Loenersloot yesterday, and this is below the national average.

Euro 95 is still very high compared to other countries, but the Dutch diesel is taxed somewhat less than in many other countries. But we're not a diesel country, about 1/7th of the cars is a diesel car. I believe it's as much as 80% in France.

Diesel as well. In the Netherlands it's significantly cheaper than gas, but here it's more expensive.

The Indian reservations about an hour away from here are having gas as low as $1.73 (€0.365/liter).

They don't have to pay state taxes or something like that.

Meanwhile here in Buffalo, the average price is $2.47 (€0.521/liter).

€0.365/L compared to €1,26/L

The problem over here is that the gas price doesn't drop at the same rate as the oil price does. This happens more in the US, explaining the big difference.

That's because taxes are a much bigger portion of the fuel price in Europe. The portion the oil price has it's influence on is only like a third of the total price.

In most gas stations here in Athens, Greece the maximum price is about 0,90 €.
In some areas (in islands or towns in North Greece) might found more expensive...
