Yup, its about £25 ($45) to fill up the tank here (35 litre I think), and that'll last about 300-350 miles depending on what sort of driving you're doing. I think the current prices can be as low as £0.79 ($1.41) per LITRE to £1 ($1.80) per LITRE.

About twice a month, always fill my little car up on payday (thursday yippee!!) and half way through the month. It's a little bit low on juice at the moment, just under a quarter of a tank, but that will last me for another two days.

I was really really lucky during the fuel blockades a couple of years ago, I lived so close to work that it was nearer to get the bus than drive to the staff car park, (and bus was free). I had a full tank of petrol in my car for the whole of the crisis, but it didn't affect me.
In the UK we have the cheapest petrol in Europe, but the amount of tax that is slapped ontop makes it amongst the most expensive.
