Shell station here at the corner (Budapest, Hungary) has a price of 387 forint for Super 95. The highest ever price I've seen in Hungary. Since forint has a little bit better rate than 1-2 months ago, euro related is it even higher: 1.46 €/l (8,00 $/gal).

Note to self: never buy gas in Connecticut if you can avoid it. (Which actually was my policy in the early 90s when I was driving more....)

$3.699 at the neighborhood Sunoco station. Peak in '08 was $4.139.

The price has suddenly gone up these last days. Around R$2,80 for gas ($1.78 per liter) and R$2,60 for ethanol ($1.65 per liter). Real-dolar exchange rate has reached R$1.57 today.

Keep in mind that 25% of brazilian gas is ethanol, so this prices will decrease as soon as the sugarcane harvest starts, what is supposed to happen next month.

Here in Huesca diesel was yesterday at €1.300/l ($7.103/gal) and 95 petrol at €1.341/l ($7.327/gal). Too expensive! . I want to go to Gibraltar to get gas at €1.18/l...

I think in the USA diesel just dropped, it's now cheaper than premium 93 gasoline and under 4 dollars at most places.

In Germany could a new tax that taxes fuel but its energy-potential make the diesel the most expensive fuel sort available - if the tay comes diesel could be about 26ct more expensive then now and with that cost more then ultimate 100

The expensive Chevron at the airport here has peaked at $4.99 9/10 for diesel, 5 dollars a gallon basically. I imagine it will go down now that oil is. I couldn't get a picture this time. Gas was 4.26 for regular, 4.59 for mid I think and 4.79 for high grade. That close to officially breaking 5 but it won't quite do it, damn. I wanted to see a five.

I suspect you'll see that five: I don't think the price of oil going down has an immediate effect on prices (because they're processing crude that was extracted a few weeks ago, or something). The neighborhood Sunoco (which I keep mentioning because I pass it twice a day and have gotten into the habit of looking at the price - most days, it's the only gas station I see, because I have a five-block commute) was stable for a few weeks but has started going up again. $3.799 for regular the last few days; was $3.759 a week ago and probably in the $3.50s for most of March.

That "official" intrigues me:
are prices regulated in Europe?

(Also, I keep seeing headlines out of Belgium about something called the "cliquet inversé" or "cliquet renversé" - forget which at the moment. There was discussion a few weeks ago of whether to put it into effect, and a decision this week to do so if the price of gas reaches 1.70 Euros a liter (1.50 for diesel). I'd translate that as "reversed click," but I have no idea what that actually means. Anyone?)

Prices are not regulated in Europe, other than by taxes.

In the Netherlands they count the official average of what major brands ask for their fuel. Gas stations may give discounts, so the official average is usually the highest price, found along motorways. If you buy fuel at automated gas stations you usually get something like € 0.08 - 0.12 discount.

For instance the national average for diesel in the Netherlands is € 1.429 per liter today. However, I saw a Shell Expressway which asked € 1.319 per liter for diesel fuel (= $ 7.21 per gallon)

Regular gasoline currently has a national average of € 1.749 per liter (= $ 9.55 per gallon), but if you buy at automated gas stations you will pay around € 1.65 per liter.

Average price for gazoline (unleaded 95) in France is 1,53 euro per liter.

1 GA = 4,54609 L
1 Euro = 1,45 USD

That means

Media here are starting to talk about $6.00 a gallon by summer. Talk in Washington (in fact, from the President and the Justice Department) has started about investigating whether the high prices are legitimate - my word, not theirs - saying there's no supply issue....) It starts to affect the economy as people have less to spend on other things.

Yes, Europeans - I know you've been paying that much forever, but still, it affects most people's budgets when you're suddenly paying substantially more for something than you're used to.

That means
1 US Gallon = 3.79 liters, not 4.55. This is the British Gallon
