So How Much Is Gas Where You Live Now?

Sat Apr 08, 2006 8:53 am

Hi folks...
Here in Anchorage, gas prices continue to rise...again.
Yesterday April 6th, regular unleaded fuel at Holiday was $2.51.9 a gallon, but when I went down the road a bit, Chevron has their regular fuel posted at $2.39.9 a gallon.
And everyone is saying that fuel (in ANC) will $3 bucks a gallon this summer, if the spot market hits $70 a barrel.
So what's the price like where you live, folks? Regards.

Here in Sweden where I live gas is 11.50 SEK ($1.50) a liter. So that would be about 43.70 SEK ($5.75) per gallon.

Since when did it go down that far? 5 days ago it was 94.9 cents per litre for regular unleaded in both Niagara Falls and Cambridge. At today's exchange rate, that is $3.125 USD per gallon

I don't remember that. I've been driving for the last 8 years and I remember paying $1.20 or damn near close to that. And I grew up in the SF Bay Area.

$.92 maybe during a radio event or something. I dunno.

Works out to US$2.76 per gallon.

That's total BS - here I am in Alberta, one of the most oil-rich regions on the planet, and with huge refineries just a short drive up a major highway, yet I'm paying 99.9 cents/litre (US$3.29/gallon) - and you guys in Ontario are paying 83.7 cents/litre.

That is something about 4,90 EUR (around 5-6 USD) per gallon, I guess.

Like I said, 5 days ago Cambridge and Niagara were at about 94.9 per litre and given that prices have only gone up in the past week here in New Orleans, there is no way it is 83.7 cents anywhere in Southwestern Ontario.

BTW, here in New Orleans we have seen a 40 cent spike in the last 3 weeks or so. Currently, we are at $2.65 per gallon for regular and I have to pay $2.85 per gallon for the premium

Pretty close, but you did make the common mistake of doing a 4 to 1 conversion, when it is actually 3.785. That makes a much bigger difference than most think.

In some ways, I really don't mind the higher gas prices. Yeah, it does put a small crimp in my budget, but the US only averages 24.7 MPG per car sold, while the EU does 41 MPG (France is the best at 46 MPG). That difference is ridiculous.

Of course, the Diesel emissions must get better than they are now, but I think this can be achieved.

We just had our weekly .10-.12 cents increase today. Around town it is $2.65-$2.69 and I'm guessing out near the main highway it is probably $2.75 or more.

I found this right after hurricane Katrina and it seems to be appropriate again.

In Mesa, AZ at the local Shell today it was 2.61.

Quoting FutureSDPDcop (Reply 16):
I don't remember that. I've been driving for the last 8 years and I remember paying $1.20 or damn near close to that. And I grew up in the SF Bay Area.

Shoot, in 1972 when I purchased my first car (which got 35 mpg) the price of gas at the Hancock station in Half Moon Bay, CA. was 26.9 Oh the good old days.
