Petrol/Gas Prices - Part 3

So this will be the final instalment* of my price of gasoline series, as it has now surpassed the psychologically significant barrier of $4 per gallon.

The petrol station pictured here is an average price for my area; $4.139 is the highest price I've seen for 87-octane petrol. That being said, last time I wrote about how we had just passed the $1/liter mark; however, that was some 18 cents ago. The price for a liter is now 107.2 cents - and climbing.

The sign pictured here started the day at a mere $4.019 - something I would have loved to have paid. By 12:30pm, the price moved up 4 cents, and this was on a day when the markets were closed.

Without using currency exchange rates, how much is a liter of fuel where you live? And, if you're in a part of the US that is not California, how much does it cost where you live?

*For some reason, the American spelling of this word - with 2 l's - looks wrong to me now.

  10. Note: standard petrol in Poland is 95-octane.
    I live in Poland and it's now about $1.73406/litre, which means $6,5641~/US gallon. However I drive a diesel so it's slightly lower.

  11. @Bacon Fan: I do the same thing when weather permits. Unfortunately where I live we have snow and ice on the ground right now so my gsx-r isn't very safe to ride.

  25. Petrol is now at the record high of £1.34 per litre. If you use an exchange rate on that to dollars, we are being raped for our fuel compared to other countries :(
