Just filled up at $2.76/gallon just outside Cincinnati. Not as bad as I thought it'd be.

That's weird, prices around Cincinnati that I saw today were between $2.99 to $3.05/gal.

Where exactly did you fill up?

Is there a reason for the extreme fuel prices in Turkey? I don't think it's an exchange rate issue, Turkish fuel has always been more expensive.

OMG, that's €1.92 per liter!!! That's a hell! I would park my car at the BG/TR border and I would continue by bike or by public transport...

In Romania now we are on protest against the high fuel prices. People are protesting by not buying fuel for 3 days.

And if you are a foreigner in Turkey prices are even higher. I rented a car when I was on vacation in Turkey and it was not a pleasant experience having to pay more than what the Turks were paying.

When the attendant finished pumping the fuel he had to type in the license plate number into the system and it told him it was a rental car. So even though the gas dispenser indicated one amount due, they recalculated the bill to a higher amount. I bought gas at 4 different stations each in a different city and the same thing happened each time.

It really got me angry, but a Turk who lives in Germany and drove to Turkey in his Skoda on German plates explained to me at the gas station that he also had to pay a higher price than what was advertised since he was driving a car with foreign plates.

I guess it is a similar system that was used in the past by communist countries of Eastern Europe- the only difference being instead of requiring westerners to pay in hard currency, in Turkey they just make you pay more in their own currency.

To me it is a ridiculous, but hey its their loss. There are plenty of other places to go and see in the world, no need for me to return to Turkey ever again. This monkey business with gasoline really turned me off and soured my view of Turkey.

When I was in Trieste my friend told me that city residents get a special card which gets them cheaper fuel than non-residents.

This is to avoid people going to Slovenia to refill, because it's cheaper there. I don't agree with this either, but it's quite a different story...

EDIT: I read that the government wants to abolish this regional law..

That's £0.06 more than here, was it right next to the airport or at a motorway services? Those are usually the most expensive places to fill up.

The same occurs in Como (and surroundings), in order to avoid people going to Switzerland to refill.

Here in Milan yesterday I payed something like 1,40€ per Liter of fuel.
