I think it is an all-time high here as well in Austria. I should have refueled my car yesterday when it was 6 cents less .

Euro 95: €1,468
Diesel: € 1,449

Will this ever stop?
These greedy oil people don't have any good sense, only more and more money...
Do the people really have nothing to say in this? They are the consumers... or maybe people just have to much money.

It's the market that sets the price. And not in the least the government, in some countries two thirds of the price is tax. Oil could easily get to 400 dollars a barrel and people in developed countries could still drive like they do today if it wasn't for the excessive taxation. As a matter of fact the current Dutch fuel price would equal $ 380 oil if it was untaxed.

The other thing is that if government lowered fuel taxation intermediaries would increase their margins...

I only use my car 2-3 times a week, driving 5km in to town for shopping.

so the price increase is not very noticable for me.

I am very glad I don't have to commute longer distances with car because it would be
devestating to my personal economy.

No it isn't. Everybody knows that rules of competition only apply to non-essential goods, and gasoline in nowadays world IS essential. Companies make cartels and set whatever price they want, and people will pay because they have no other choice.

Seeing stations at $3.97, $3.98, $3.99 a lot here, they are afraid to pass the psychological $4 mark but it will likely be surpassed on the weekend.

Times like these make me happy that I have a Toyota Corolla, Filling up at $36 at prices around $4 a gallon is good for a week.

I know this is trivial compared to prices seen in Europe but still.

Hmm, if there were enough oil in the ground to pump, the price would not rise, because the competition would drive the price low. It is just as simple as that, there is not anymore any excess oil to be pumped in the long term. The distribution of oil is now only price-demand driven. The oil age is tipping over.

Above that, sanctions against Iran doesnt help the oil price especially in Europe. Every percent of the supply counts when we talk about the oil price changes both being quite price inelastic now a days.

Hmmmm... $5.09 (or $4.99) is unusually high even for California. I'm curious where in Los Angeles the reporting was in. I'm up in the San Jose area and most stations are around $4.29 a gallon and I have not seen anyone around here with prices higher than $4.40 for regular unleaded. IIRC, the average in San Francisco is (was?) something like $4.25 while in Oakland and San Jose the average was somewhere around $4.15.

FWIW, 10 cent increases overnight have been a common occurrence over the past couple of weeks.

I am just as annoyed as everyone else when I fill up my car. However, if you start thinking about inflation and the much better fuel economy of modern cars.... the actual cost for fuel for the average driver is probably the same ( or lower) today compared to 10, 20 or 30 years ago.

Let me give you an example:
20 years ago the average price for regular gasoline in Sweden was SEK 6:26 per liter. That comes to SEK 8:15 in todays money. So yes, even adjusted for inflation fuel is more expensive now (fuel today is about SEK 15:10).

The big difference is that most cars you could buy in 1992 would give you a fuel economy no better than 10 l/100 km, with bigger cars it would often be even worse than that. Today you can easily find a car with a fuel consumption half of what it was in 1992. So at least in Sweden, as long as you drive a modern car, the cost for driving 100 km is probably about the same today as it was 20 years ago.

Fuel price in Europe, counted as how many times you can fill up your car (40 liters) with the minimum wage:
