German off-motorway gas prices in 1984, as seen in this video.

With a €/DM exchange rate of 1.95, diesel would come at 70ct/L. Considering that more than 30 years have passed since, the increase in price is not even that bad (today's off-motorway diesel prices coming at 1.10 - 1.25€/L in Germany).

It was probably running around a dollar a gallon in the U.S. at the time. (It increased from 50-odd cents to 90-odd in 1979, if memory serves, and was still there when I started driving regularly (after college) in 1987. But that's in New Jersey, which tends to be a bit lower than other states, at least in the Northeast.)

I've always noticed that Europeans post a lot of diesel prices. Here in the US very few autos use diesel. Diesel is used by some pick-up trucks and Big Rig trucks i.e Tractor trailers..

Diesel prices as of right now, 1725 07.21.2017, in Cedar Rapids.

Your fuel prices

Paid $2.259* at a Speedway in Flemington, New Jersey, yesterday. Saw a lot of $2.239s a few miles back.



(Or a tiny bit less: Nice thing about New Jersey full service; when the tab came out to a bit above $22.00, the attendant rounded down to 22 even to spare himself making change....)

Due to reduction of gasoline production in USA, some increase is visible also at the other side of pond.

Yesterday at the BP station that is the closest from my house:
- Unleaded 95 - 4,39 zł/l (€1,03),
- Diesel - 4,23 zł/l (€1,00),

Today:
- Unleaded 95 - 4,50 zł/l (€1,06),
- Diesel - 4,21 zł/l (€0,99).

I was travelling a bit a few days ago, visited Croatia and Slovenia, driving through Austria and Czech Republic. Some prices I remember:

Austria
Super 95:
- outside motorway - €1,129/l (I filled up to the full twice there - both at OMV stations, that I appreciate the most - in Villach and in Graz)
- at the motorway - €1,439/l (seen at various stations - OMV, Eni, BP and Shell - at OMV at the A5 near Mistelbach there was even €1,459/l).

Slovenia:
- Super 95: €1,259 (filled a bit between Ljubljana and Celje, just to reach Graz; what's interesting, prices at the whole country are almost equal and as far as I know, it's due to some domestic law requirements).

Croatia:
- Super 95: 9,72 kn/l (€1,31); this is from the INA station in Krk, at some in Rijeka there was circa 0,20 kn cheaper.

I didn't notice diesel prices, as I drove a car with gasoline engine. I can remember only that diesel in Austrian motorway stations was a bit above €1,30/l, while some outside, next to interchanges, advertised themselves with prices about €1,07/l.

Gas prices have jumped up here in Cedar Rapids due to price gouging by the big oil companies. Just my opinion.

Local gas prices in Cedar Rapids IA. Compare to post #4028.

Gas has jumped 20 cents in Ontario because of Harvey. It was hovering around $1.10/litre on Thursday, and today it's near $1.30. Ridiculous price increases.

Mine was just repeat of what I've heard about this increase. It's not new that if there's any trouble, no matter how big, companies use it to explain a growth which becomes their profit mostly.

I drove from Northern New Jersey to Philadelphia last Monday (so a couple of days into Harvey). Paid (if memory serves) $2.259, early in the drive, but as I continued on, I noticed pretty much everyone else was well above $2.30.

In the UK still ranging 110-120 pence per litre. On the motorways it's slightly higher, 120-130.

Prices for Unleaded 95 and Diesel are basically always the same, sometimes diesel is a 10-20 pence higher, but not much difference.

So far I've seen 1.28 to 1.38 at supermarkets in France. (Euro 95). Fuel is more expensive in remote mountain areas, some charge up to 1.65 per liter which is more expensive than at a motorway service area. I paid € 1.13 in Luxembourg. It's nice to see the total price gauge going up only slightly faster than the volume you're fueling 😁 instead of being at € 30 at only 20 liters...

Luxembourg is phenomenal. I decided to fill up there while travelling to Ireland (maybe next year).

Same station is charging $2.799 today.

Just made the same trip in the other direction. Most places were charging in the $2.30s Monday, $2.60s and some $2.70s today.
