Best price locally is now up to £1.327 / €1.58 per litre, $8.00 per US gallon for regular 95....

So my 60-litre tank now costs £80 / €95 / $127 to fill up

Strange fuel prices. Euro 95 is about 10 cents lower than the national (motorway) average, and so is Diesel, but Euro 98 is higher than the motorway average. I bet nobody comes here to tank Euro 98.

Fuel is $3.55/gal at my local gas station today. About $37 to fill up. I'm still surprised at the amount of big trucks and SUV's I see on the roads today.
Americans will always drive big cars, I think its just the way it is. I remember we sold our Ford Expedition in 2008 when the prices were higher than they are now. What sucks is the availability of fuel efficient cars to young people and those with less money. Until the past few years most fuel efficient cars were not so great, always came with few features, cheap interiors, and roll up windows lol.

This is what will f**k us up ladies and gentlemen! Every single time the economy looks like it is improving, some speculators decide to slap another $10 on the price of a barrel of crude!

This pushes inflation up, the cost of goods, cuts business profits and takes any extra money people may have had in their pockets and puts it straight into the fuel tank. Hence people don't feel any better, business doesn't feel it can invest and create jobs, and the value of money decreases; making everybody feel shit and poor again.

Since the economy is simply a confidence game, if people feel poor then they won't spend which keeps the economy bumbling along in a stagnant state.

Only good thing could be, governments of the world may resent paying for oil and invest heavily in Fusion and cleaner fission in order to power the electric transport revolution.

I don't think we have this in Ohio yet. I usually use BP, Speedway or Shell gas stations and never had to deal with cash vs. credit/debit situations.

It's $3.77 in Cincinnati today for Regular Unleaded.

Interesting map! Lots of differences.

Also a really bad map with Montenegro missing, Crete mistaken for Cyprus and Corsica, Sardegna and Sicilia as non EU territory.

Benzin in Italy is running fast towards 2€/l. In many stations in Central Italy it already reached 1.93€/l.

Right yesterday I spent 600 € for the insurance (6 months covered base covered) + 65 € of bi-annual technical inspection. I still have to spend 230 € for the annual tax within the end of the month. Gasoline costs 1,7 €/l and highways are tolled. To drive a car in Italy is not expansive, it's a hell!!!

Toll roads should theoretically mean lower taxes in other areas because the government does not have the burden of constructing, maintaining and expanding motorways, unfortunately this is only rarely the case.

Yes it should... and a private owner of a toll road wants also to get a profit from it, not do a charity work. In Italy the annual increase of the toll is not justified by the work that owners do on it (for example the section Torino-Milano increased of 19% in 2011)

You know that in in Italy taxes on fuel are meant to finance the Abyssinian war of 1935 and the Vajont dam disaster of 1963. This fact is the proof that Italy is the most absurd and incomprehensible place in Europe...
