I was joking.

If anything the weak dollar is to blame.

In Ireland I remember 0,95 € for Super Unleaded 95 and 0,85 € for Diesel on September 2004! Good old times!

$3.73 for regular (€0.705/liter). $4.15 for diesel (€0.785/l).

And it's just March...at the rate that prices have went up in recent weeks, we should see the $4 level by April unless things change.

Didn't think I'd find a thread like this I just took this last night.

Chevron at MIA:

^How about that 460 a gallon for diesel that's closer to 5 than 4.

I like the colour scheme. Sometimes it's hard to find the exact fuel you want from a moving vehicle while beeing carefull not to cause an accident. The dual colour scheme (petrol/diesel) is an excelent thing.

That's why I like what Shell is doing recently - instead of displaying a kilometre-long price list of everything they have, they simply display two positions people are actually interested in: E95 and Diesel, and they do this using a big-ass font.

I think the matter isn't in the numbers of fuel products sold in a filling station.

In Italy great filling stations have 6 kinds of fuel:

- Super Unleaded 95
- Super Unleaded 98
- Diesel
- Diesel Special
- LPG
- Methane

The important is that Super must come first, Diesel must come second, LPG must come third and Methane must come fourth.

But some station put Diesel as first and premium fuel as followers. Super 95 is only in the last position on the prices chart so it's hard to find out the prices!

High gas prices are the best thing that can happen to America. Sure there will be short to to moderate term pain, but that country has been living in a cheap oil bubble that is going to pop and the sooner it does the better. America's development pattern is unsustainable and needs to be aligned around HSR and public transportation.

That is very true. The one thing I have never seen high gas prices do yet is make a noticeable reduction in traffic. Every day is a traffic jam every in Miami. People are addicted to their cars here. I would bike but it's too dangerous. In places, even walking places like south beach where I-395 enters it are like 10 lanes across, and there's always someone turning on red. Today at that station the 87 Octane price was $3.99, the others were the same.

Which brings me to a good point, have any of you seen a change in traffic due to your fuel costs such as if your in one of the countries where it's around or more than twice the US average?

Yes, in Budapest (375 Ft/l is about 7.25 $/gallon) traffic reduction is notable. Statistics say it is -10% related to last February and I myself see there are remarkably less traffic jams in the city as before. In Budapest modal split iss almost equal for cars and public transport and now the streets are less filled and trams, subways are a little bit more filled than before.

It makes no significant difference whatsoever.

The US has a modal split for the car at 92%. In Europe, where fuel prices have been consistently 2 - 3 times higher than the US it is 86%.

It's also a myth that driving in the US is too cheap. The better fuel efficiency in Europe (including a far larger share of diesel passenger vehicles) mostly offsets the higher fuel price. If you calculate the cost per kilometer or mile driving (fuel price vs fuel efficiency), the difference is not 2 - 3 times but much smaller.

Europeans pay more for their fuel, but consume less
Americans pay less for their fuel, but consume more

The real difference is in other taxes, like car taxes. In the Netherlands, you pay 42% + 19% tax over your vehicle. It costs $ 1500 to get a drivers license. You have to pay $ 600 - 1500 per year in road tax. The fine collection is automated and targeted at small offenses (highest revenue), etc.

Diesel fuel costs € 1,40 in the Netherlands. My car consumes 1 liter per 19 kilometers. That is € 0,075 per km
Gasoline costs € 0,65 in the United States. An average american family car consumes like 1 liter per 10 kilometers. That is € 0,065 per km.
