About $2.70 a gallon. You do the math.

Just about 1 euro 40 per litre = 1.60 USD per litre

I drive a BMW 3 series and I use preminum gas. I usually spent about a full tank every week which costs about $60 CAD? :mad:

Liam 25-08-2005 08:35 PM

Its about $1.30 a litre here at the moment, which is about 98 cents US, 80 eurocent, or 8.21 Mexican Peso.

This 'cheapness' is offset by the larger cars and bigger distances we need to drive compared to our European comrades.

I could explain more about the current high fuel prices, and in which ways its affecting seemingly unrelated industries all around the world, but I can't be bothered to say, and you wouldn't be that interested.

Its what I do at work...

Renegade 25-08-2005 09:25 PM

It's just about $3.00 a gallon where I live. Prices are crazy.

apoggy 25-08-2005 09:51 PM

89.9p a litre round the corner from my house. Thats US$1.62/litre or US$6.13/gallon.

And thats in a city up north, I dread to think what London prices are like.

hasselbrad 25-08-2005 09:59 PM

Yeah, the fever pitch of bitch in this country seems pretty silly when you see prices around the world.
I saw where it was almost $7.00/gallon in Amsterdam.
Of course, I heard it's $0.12/gallon in Venezuela. How about we invade?

apoggy 25-08-2005 10:02 PM

but how much of the 89.9 is tax? lots

I'm the retard driving an Explorer through all of this. It costs me ten bucks to get from my house to where I keep my horse (about twenty miles or so). I try to see my horse six times a week.

Jacoby 26-08-2005 04:15 AM

$2.51- 2.65 for my van. And it doesn't get me very far. I can literally watch the needle go down, and watch money fall out of my wallet.

Kelsey 26-08-2005 04:38 AM

L.A. was 2.89 when I was there. Around where I live it's been about 2.79.

NSW apparently is 10c higher than everyonelse in the country Liam, been $1.20 here for a week or two.

Liam 26-08-2005 08:41 AM

I haven't been paying any attention, but I saw that price last Wednesday which is when the servo owners in NSW traditionally jack up prices for the mid-week fill. As of next Monday I'll be working in Sydney full time, so I'll get a Monday morning price then.

Leonie 26-08-2005 09:24 AM

The Netherlands is fucking 1.22 euros a litre. Tax crazy much?

Luckily I don't drive and have access to public transport for free. My government use their tax income well :icon_bigg

Just read an article about it then, apparently the Netherlands has the highest fuel price in the world, followed by Norway, Italy, Denmark and Belgium. Venezuala's cheapest: 3 eurocents a litre. (from: http://nieuws.geenstijl.nl/archives/...zine_duur.html - which is Dutch so dont bother clicking :))
