How much is petrol/gas where you are?
« on: June 12, 2012, 10:07:14 AM »
We all complain about the price of filling up the car, but we sometimes forget that it's more expensive in some parts of the world.

How much do you pay? Currently petrol is about A$1.30 a litre. (the Aussie $ is practically at parity with the US $).

One gas station I drove by last night was $3.89 - I stopped at a place where it ws $3.63 if you paid in cash. The two stations were only 10 miles away so prices can really differ.

About £1.34 per litre, making it about $2.08 per litre or almost $10 per gallon.

In my town in New Hampshire, it's roughly between US$3.41 and $3.59 per gallon.

I tried to do the math to convert that to US dollars, and came up with $.90 to $.95 per liter. However, my math may be flawed.

Also Australian prices here, but at $1.56 per litre - prices in the bush tend to be quite a bit dearer than those in the cities!
Look out...

We saw $3.25/gal (US gallon, 4 quarts) at one station in Iowa (USA) last week. We've only seen $4.00 once in all our travels.

Corn fuel and petrol fuel are the same price, but we get fewer miles/gallon when it is partially corn.

I just filled up yesterday and we paid $3.26 a gallon for the cheapest type.  I looked it up and there is roughly 3.78 litres (UK litres) in a US gallon.


So that works out to about $.86 a litre.

That changes things a bit then, as I was going on UK measures which is about 4.5 litres to a gallon.  So I think that means 1 US gallon costs almost $8 here.

Hovering between $1.20 and $1.25/L here right now.  Multiplied by 3.8 L/US gallon = $4.54 to $4.72/US gallon.  The Canadian dollar is close to being on par with the US dollar.  Last I noticed, it was at about $0.96 so that would increase the US equivalent price just a little.

(For the UKers:  A US gallon is only 128 ounces, instead of 160.)
