Incredibly enough, the cheaper US gas prices are 4 times lower than the Dutch national price (€ 0,30 vs € 1,26)

It's just not fair. At the moment we pay an average of $1,60 a litre

Taken into account the per capita income in Egypt is about 25x lower than The Netherlands then we're not doing too bad then

Yeah, it's a luxury for high income economies, fuel of a euro per liter.

I think the wealthiest members on SSC come from 3rd world/developing countries."

LPG for CZK 14/litre today (EUR 0,54, USD 0,69)! Less than CZK 1/km! Driving is so pleasant again.

The oil price can't drop forever, of course. I wonder where this ends.

Well. For those that hold their jobs and maintain their income for the coming year it will be a nice period of respite from high fuel costs.
It's hard to say how this will play out. Whether prices will rise again through increased demand or whether they will rise through depletion is to be seen in the short/medium term. If it's the second then that's really going to be tough going.
Investment in exploration and equipment is running way too low at the moment as is investment in renewables. That's a pretty dangerous cocktail.

I guess OPEC (especialy SA) will do anything to prevent prices fall bellow USD 35 otherwise it might be very difficult for them to fund their national budgets and new crude megaprojects.

Yeah, nearly all manned gas stations sell LPG too. I think the LPG distribution in the Netherlands might be the most extensive in Europe.

Loenersloot's gas station is manned, but doesn't sell it

Anyway, yesterday in Loenersloot:
Euro 95: €1,18/L
Diesel: €0,99/L

Not much change.
