Please change to prices per liter! We use l in almost all the world! That is €0.60/l the cheapest and €0.64/l the most expensive. Those conversions should be thing of the past. The US must join the international system!

No more gas prices? I didn't saw any gas stations for a while now... But how about gas prices in Greece? They are now so expensive that Greeks have been forced to sell their cars and go by bike everywhere even if the destination is 500 km away?

It's more like 20%, not 2%:
http://www.2010againstpoverty.eu/new...html?langid=it
http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/cac...-02-008-EN.PDF

No country in Europe has a level of poverty below 10%:

I wrote that because I checked www.energy.eu and saw that Greece historically had gas prices a bit below the Spanish ones, but now petrol has the same price as in Netherlands: €1.52/l. BTW, I passed by a gas station but I didn't looked at gas prices .

Well its pretty clear that prices in Greece are high cause of the tax gathering needs, whether there is any result or not though, in any case we still use our cars for now, and you can just be more polite to avoid offensive replies

High fuel prices were never a reason in Europe to drive less. A bad economic situation is though.

$1.24 (CAD) for Premium Grade petrol at the Husky station I fuel up at. I won't buy anything less than premium grade. Anyone who say Regular Grade, is so full of s**t, it's not even REMOTELY funny. Unless you LIKE taking your vehicle in for unscheduled maintenance.

In Bahrain, Mumtaz(Premium, which is 95 I think) has pretty much been stuck at 100 fils/ltr, or around $1.33 per gallon, for the last few years. Nice price compared to what some of you guys are reporting, although I heard the fuel's quality isn't so good and as my previous comment suggests, the octane rating is surprisingly mysterious.

Your national price (is this the national average?) is about 3 times as much as what I paid last night.
