Average price in Queensland (Australia), just reported on the local news, is AUD $0.97. At the current exchange rate its still only EUR 0.5

This thread would be good in a wiki table format.

Up to a bit over 10 SEK in Sweden again, due to tax increases at the beginning of the year and minor actual oil price increases.

That's true. Petrol right now is considered cheap. Although I think an even cheaper fuel price would be appreciated by the public, it's not really necessary though. This is a good level. Problem is it doesn't encourage the development of alternative fuels.

They should develop alternative fuels anyway, despite the price. Oil is not a reliable energy source in the long term, not only by the supply, but also by geopolitics. In my opinion, they should focus on electrical cars. The electrical infrastructure is virtually existant everywhere, you'll only need actual charging locations. Current gas stations could do that. Electricity can be produced with near zero emissions, and even if it was to be produced by coal, it's much easier to control the emissions at a few power plants than millions of cars.

I don't think there's doubt the personal vehicle will pay an important role in the future. Predictions that motorways become useless once oil is running out are nonsense in my opinion. There might be a difficult transition period though, especially if we run out of oil too soon. That's why it's important to develop a long-term reliable alternative fuel source right now, and not in 20 years.

I don't get it. They claim that the spike is because of rising costs for raw materials, but according to http://oil-price.net/ a barrel is still just at US$ 40 and the crown is stable against the dollar. I think there's something fishy going on...

Why would that affect the price of gasoline? I think it's weird.

Because some energy plants also work on oil. Hence, more oil is used than usual, so prices rise.

But that should mean that demand for oil should rise, which would then increase the price of oil. But it hasn't. So why is the price of a petroleum product (gasoline) rising? Is it just we who have experienced this spike?

Current price in my nearest station (Neste) is 3,09 for 95 & Diesel, that's about 0,76 euro per liter.
