What is the price of petrol/gasoline in your country?

  1. Sep 30, 2004 #1
    In malaysia, it was just increased to USD0.38/litre (RM1.42) this morning.
    Cost of living is increasing, petrol's price will spark inflation! :cry:

    Same as iwiws.

    I don't really care though they should crank it up to a dollar, so the old cars can't afford to stay on the road. They stink like ass.

    I paid $1.96 a gallon yesterday in Wisconsin. Wisconsin seems to have some kind of fair-trading law; you never see a station undercutting the others.

    ~$1.90 in Southeastern PA (though it drops off fast as you leave the city).

    Pretty much the same as it is here in South Carolina. Man, I remember when gas used to be $0.69 a gallon.

    Surely if I say to you it's 1 Euro/litre here, it has no meaning for you.

    We should reach a settlement and post the figures in an international system units: the litre in the name of Europe, and the $$ in the name of USA.

    So that, here it is 0.83 $$US / litre. But we take home a lot of less money than you every month, and prices are higher (this is the Hell).

    I pay $2.21 per gallon, which is a heck of a lot more. Of course its also fair to point out that average incomes are much higher here than in malaysia, but in a state where noone lives where they work and everyone commutes 30-60 minutes, gas is expensive.

    i remember when it it was $1.85... its 2.21 now...damn lucky midwest with their cheap gas...

    I live in Omaha it has been as high as 2.03 for regular unleaded

    hold your hoeses there bud, now i own an 85 camaro V8 of course, perfect condition, it does not stick or nothing, why should people like me who love old cars be deprived of our love, just because you dont like them doesnt mean everyone shouldnt like them.

    but even if it is a buck per litre i dont care i have enough money to support it anyways

    I have to agree that a well maintained classic is a beautiful thing. Note I said "well maintained". Driving around a rusted out S***box because you're 16 and it's all you can afford to keep it running isn't what I mean.

    And I shudder that you're calling an 85 camaro a classic like it's an ancient car- my first was an 83 lynx *shakes his cane at you*

    Connecticut is hovering at $2/gal. IT depends on what town you are in. We can drive over to Rhode Island and save about 10 cents per, but that's out of the way.

    About $2.00/gal in Buffalo, NY

    I wasn't referring to that.

    If I were in a car forum, I would have been more specific, but since I'm not I had to go with the general thought of an old car, which is rusted piece of junk.

    well thx for clarifying, and Zantra i dont consider my car a classic, although by rights it is, its 20 years old, and any car over 20 is a classic, my car is well maintained, rebuilt, the engine is rebuilt, it purs like a kitten, its my pride and joy, mainly because i shed so much blood, sweat and tears in that car

    the prices in the US are unbelievably low.. only $2 in california?

    here in the Netherlands we pay $6.05/gallon (€1,29/liter) for the cheapest petrol, $6.25 for the higher grade and $6.39 for the good quality petrol.. anyone, try to beat those prices :devil:

    Ofcourse, at the same time we should be asking how many miles a gallon of petrol is going to last.. I just asked my friend who drives an Audi TT (yes :approve:) and he says he can drive 23.6 miles on a gallon (11 km on a liter).

    Actually, I've seen him average 8,3 liters/100 km.. which would be 12km/liter = 28,4 miles/gallon.. and that for a sportscar :tongue: isn't it a pretty car? it reminds me of a black panther :approve:
