How Much Do You Pay for Petrol (Gas)

The UK is facing the implementation of record prices for petrol and diesel. Soon it will be in the region of UK£1.37 per litre for petrol.... - diesel's around UK£1.46. How does this compare with you guys in North America, Far East, Oz and NZ? Now, how shall I get to work today?? Beemer at 22 mpg or Versys at 55 mpg?? Mmmm, tough one that...! Sure makes you appreciate how frugal the V can be...!

I paid $3.80 per gallon yesterday.

So roughly 2.87507 EUR per 3.78541178 liter if I did the math correctly.

Texas is $3.60 per gallon.

If I did my math right, that's 0.718€ / liter

Cheers, Jeff

Today in the Florida panhandle, regular gasoline stands at $3.63 per U.S. Gallon.
That converts to $0.96 per liter or £0.60 per liter or €0.73 per liter.

Computations:
- 1 US gallon = 3.78541178 liters (rounded to 3.79)
- Gallon Price divided by 3.79 equals dollars per liter
- Convert dollars per liter to British pounds - http://www.dollars2pounds.com
- Convert dollars per liter to Euros - http://www.dollars2euro.com/

Paying $4.05/gallon here in SW Washington.

Always hard to really compare prices when the tax rates are so different. Washington has one of the highest gas taxes in the states which is roughly $0.55 of the price (14%).
Last time I researched it (which was awhile ago), 60% of the price in the UK was taxes.

I think you converted the opposite way, should read £0.89 per litre or €1.07 per litre.

I was down in Laguna Beach this weekend, and 87 was going for $4.54. That was the high water mark for L.A. back before the bottom fell out in '08. We're at $4.35 and climbing where I'm at....

We pay RM1.90 for RON 95 and about RM 2.90 for RON 97. ( conversion rate is USD @ 3.20).That's less than USD 1 per litre.

At the Chevron two blocks from my house is $4.31 for 87 octane and at costco 87 octane is $4.04 that is here in Sacramento,Ca

That's per gallon today by this afternoon I am sure it will go up. Prices have jumped almost 80 cents per gallon in the last three weeks
