Luckily the lowest average prices in Poland are in Katowice metro area (due to high density of filling stations). On cheapest stations in my neighbourhood (Lukoil, Neste, Carrefour - less than 5 minutes by car) it looks like this today:

E95, Diesel: 3,21 PLN (0,79 EUR)

E98: 3,31 PLN (0,81 EUR)

LPG: 1,84 PLN (0,45 EUR)

Haven't seen such gasoline/diesel prices for last few years But I drive on LPG and it's price fall is not satisfying.

So gas is like 40 cents cheaper than in the Netherlands. I think that we still have the highest gas prices in Europe after Turkey.

Actually, the lowest gas price possible in the Netherlands would be € 0,83. That only happens when oil falls to 0 (zero) dollars a barrel. Excise tax is € 0,70 and VAT (sales tax) is also required over excise tax :rollingeyes:

México


Regular 0.44EUR x Lt (7.38 MXN)
Premium 0.55EUR x Lt (9.21 MXN)
Diesel 0.39EUR x Lt (6.51 MXN)



Seems very cheap obviously and it makes sense considering that Mexican Peso devaluated against Euro in the last couple of months.

This prices are the highest ever in Mexico in which we only adjust the price in order to make gas more expensive never cheaper. The only company that provides petrol is state owned Pemex.

OK-gasstation in my town sells euro 95 for € 1,00. ( DKK 7,52 )
Here, there is always a difference between 92 and 95 on 6 øre, something like € 0,008.

$1.69/gallon (€0.32/liter) here in Hartford.

Spending $10 on fuel has the same purchasing power as $25 a few months ago. It's great.

In some countries, gasoline in cheaper than water, but I don't see that happening in NL since our water is € 0,0013 per liter.

Our fuel prices are the cheapest in the world...0.12 US$ cents per Gallon or 0.03 € cents per Liter

Here is an article about it. In Venezuela 37 Liters of bottled water = 1 Liter of gasoline!!!:

Fill her up? That'll be £1 please

It's just 2 cheap ... Venezuelan petrol


By SCOTT HUSSEY

Published: 24 Jul 2008

I HAVE just bought a full tank of petrol – for ONE POUND.
But I had to fly half way around the world to get it.

I am in Venezuela, where petrol is the world’s cheapest, at less than 2p a litre — 54 times less than the UK, where unleaded averages £1.19.

Diesel here is pretty pricey though, at 2½p a litre. I filled up a garage in Caracas, the capital.

Rather than wincing as the signs on the pump spiralled past £50, here I knew that it was the equivalent of pennies. My 63-litre tank cost just a quid to fill.

It was hot work, so I bought a litre of water for 60p — then realised I could have had 37 litres of petrol for the same price.

Fuel in this oil-rich South American country is so cheap that for less than a tenner I could have driven the 4,662 miles from London to Caracas.

The price is so low because the left-wing government doesn’t tax petrol, it SUBSIDISES it and fuel is sold at a fraction of the price it costs to produce.

Efrain Salazar, the petrol station manager, told me: “The prices in both our countries are crazy.

“The price of oil is already too high. Your Government makes it worse by taxing it and by a huge amount.

"Venezuela loses lots of money. We pay people to waste fuel. We could be exporting it and making lots of money. We waste our biggest natural resource.”

Taxi driver Cesar Fernandez agreed. He said: “Of course it should cost more but no one really complains because they think they are getting a present.

“Venezuelan taxi drivers would be the luckiest in the world if it wasn’t for all the traffic jams.”


The giveaway prices do come at a cost. The cheapest petrol in the world comes with some of the worst congestion and pollution.

But woe betide any Venezuelan government which tries to take away the subsidy — previous administrations have been kicked out for hinting at it.

See below for the cheapest and dearest countries in the world for petrol.


Cheapest

Unleaded: Cost per litre, in pence

Venezuela.............1.6

Iran........................5

Saudi Arabia..........6

Turkmenistan.........8

Kuwait/Qatar..........11


Dearest

Unleaded: Cost per litre, in pence

Sierra Leone...........244

Turkey.....................139

Norway.....................136

Netherlands..............133

Belgium.....................125

How do you make a profit if what you're selling is free?

There was another drop in the retail price for 95 today. You can find it widely available for 9,74 SEK or €0,889. Crazy. I filled her up last Saturday for 9,84 SEK and kept the receipt as a souvenir...
