Gas/petrol Prices in your area

Mon Apr 30, 2018 2:49 pm

We've officially hit our highest ever gas / petrol prices at $1.62 per liter or about $4 gallon for our friends in the USA. It's been pushed up significantly recently by a dispute between British Columbia and it's neighbouring oil producing province Alberta over a pipeline that Alberta wants to run to the coast near Vancouver. BC (illegally) has refused to grant lo local permits after a multi year process and ultimate approval by the federal government. Alberta has decided to slow the oil 'exports' to BC to show our dependence on their oil supply which has sent prices up by about 10% so far.
While we all complain here I was wondering which anet reader"s locality gets the unfortunate winner for high petrol/gas prices?

My region of Maryland is at $2.71/gallon or about 72¢/liter. Very much stable, though nothing like when oil dropped in 2014 and 2015. Then again, I lived in Missouri at the time which has among the lowest gas prices in the nation.

Gasoline: € 1,739/ltr or $US 2,10/ltr or $US 7,95/gallon
Diesel: € 1,419/ltr or $US 1,71/ltr or $US 6,47/gallon

But within our tax system, diesel are taxed more, so a little bit less tax per liter.

So the US is very cheap, as is Canada ;)

$2.93 per gallon yesterday in Denver...this is for 87 octane which is our mid-grade fuel.

The media here always compares our 85 octane prices to the rest of the country's 87 and 88 octane prices, making Colorado's fuel price appear to be below the national average when in fact it is above the national average if you compare the same octane level.

87 octane..... I don't believe I can find something like that here in Western Europe. It's at leest 95 and up to 102. I used to drive a tuned VW turbo and needed at least 98 octane

That's one of the many reasons fuel in Europe is more expensive than in North America. Our vehicles are generally engineered for 87 octane fuel. 85 octane is sold in the western mountainous states, but it makes my car run like crap and I never use it even though it is significantly cheaper. I also really wish we could get this 10% ethanol shit out of our gas here in the US.

In New Jersey where I live, the price has gone up in recent weeks due to increased demand from better weather and the conversion to 'summer' fuels.
Regular gasoline is about $2.65 - $2.99/US Gallon, Diesel about $2.99 - 3.29 US Gallon with sightly higher pricing for some stations or for using a credit card vs. cash (about .10 gallon).

About three weeks ago, we had been paying $2.75 a gallon. We currently pay $3.09 a gallon for 87 octane regular.
About three weeks ago, we had been paying $.73 a liter. We currently pay $.82 a liter for 87 octane regular.

We also use different fuel rating systems. Europe uses RON, and the US uses PON which is the average between Europe's RON and Motor Oil Number (or MON). 95 RON is approximately 91 at a US fuel pump.

Ignore those pesky foreign infidels with their pathetic liters. MAGA!!

Typical units of gasoline in each country
RED = Litres
GREEN = US Gallons = 3.785 litres (not the 4.546 that the rest of the world refers to)

It has been said many times on this board - it is 87 AKI, equivalent of European 91 RON. And it means nothing since most of the cars are tuned to it.

A rather small one.

The main reason is tax, or I should rather say, taxes. Let's compare Ontario to my old country, Slovakia. The excise per liter of gasoline contains 24.7 cCDN of tax. The price contains an undisclosed carbon tax too (good going, Liberal government!) These taxes are added to the gasoline's base price and the whole price is taxed at 13% HST. In Slovakia, the excise tax is 0.5145 Euro per liter. That's added to the base price and the whole price is taxed at 20% VAT. If you think about it, the excise tax and the VAT on it is 0.6174 Euros. That's 0.9784 CAD. That's 79.9% of today's gasoline price in YXU (1.236 CAD per liter, can be slightly lower past 17:00). Mind you, this calculation doesn't even contain the VAT on the gasoline's base price. With it in the calculation, the taxes on gasoline in Slovakia would be pretty close to gasoline prices including taxes in Ontario.

Most cars? All my current cars need at least 95RON. Just ordinary boring VW with ordinary engines (1.2 TSI and 2.0 TSI). 91RON won't kill the engine, but only if no other option is available.

Funnily enough, Puerto Rico is a territory of the US, yet gas is sold by liter (though car milage is mpg). Distance is in km but speed is in mph. Ambient temperature is in Fahrenheit, but body temperature is in Celsius.

If there was ever a more confusing place to grow up and abide by a unit, look no further. And they're not moving towards any particular system (though I would strongly urge to adopt the metric system to save us the trouble of being the odd man out).

I won't ever understand Americans complaining about prices of $3.5 or $4 per gallon, that's dirt cheap.

Sorry. I should have written most cars in North America. Even the 465hp LT1 could run on 87AKI, albeit premium (91AKI) is recommended. And guess what - even those downsized European engines that found their way to North America - such as VW's 1.4 TSI or GM's 1.4 Ecotec - run on 87 AKI gasoline. They have to. Nobody would buy a compact car requiring premium fuel.

And now imagine you'd actually start talking to a Canadian. The gas price at the pump is per liter, but when people talk about fuel economy, they talk mpg. Miles per imperial gallon. When people talk distance, they talk hours. Meaning 100 km. Ambient temperature is Celsius, pool temperature is in Fahrenheit. And if you ask for a beer, you never know if you get a half liter, US pint or imperial pint.

I guess I'm in pretty good shape - we are at $2.69 a gallon even after the Trump Bump. Even better is that I now drive a Buick Encore at 25+ MPG in the city instead of the old Caddy.

It's currently about $3.35/gal here in the Seattle area - thanks in great part to the 2nd highest gas tax in the US. Will probably close in on $4.00 by end of summer (that's my prediction)

Mexico City today, around:
$1.01 USD per liter
$3.82 USD per gallon

Roughly 30% of that is a two year old tax.

Here in France the government taxes us to the death, but provides an official website to compare prices : https://www.prix-carburants.gouv.fr/

Diesel fuel I put in my company car : 1.423€/L => 6.618$/gallon
Gas (SP95-E10) I put in my personal car : 1.466€/L => 6.818$/gallon

So almost the same price, which is new. Taxes have been increased on Diesel fuel to reduce its attractivity and thus reduce pollution.

I think it's great. Like growing up in a bi-lingual household. Someone exposed to both systems should be able to seamlessly move from one to the other without effort. A digital to digital conversion vs. a digital to analog, so-to-speak.

As for gas prices:

$2.89/gal, but we're about to go to our summer bend that adds about $0.35/gal. I guess I'll pop over to the next county when I need gas.

What happens if you don't? Does it knock or ping under acceleration? I'd bet nothing, that is what has been found here. The "requirement" is mostly BS and only there to protect the manufacturer (and make money for the oil companies). The computer should adjust for any pinging.

While I cant speak for the whole of Australia here in Perth we go through a weekly fuel cycle. Tuesdays being the expensive the highest being 156.9 cent per litre for normal unleaded (91) and Monday being the cheapest, yesterday paid 129.9 cents per litre. Here in Australia we also have a good proportion of the market controlled by the 2 main Supermarket chains, Woolworths and Coles who have their own fuel retail outlets through Caltex and Shell respectively so what actually has happened over the past couple of years while we have seen grocery prices being reduced the savings the consumer makes in the supermarket are then lost at the petrol bowser with inflated fuel prices.

Here is a website we have in Western Australia for the cheapest fuel, it also gives the price different between the city and country areas

That's the problem. No one really knows how to convert units or has an idea of how much one unit is in another. I only know 1 US gallon = 3.785 liters and 1 mile = (about) 1.6km due to my physics courses. The odometers have the km numbers in them but the main ones are mph.

Don't get me wrong...I liked having been exposed to both systems, but being an engineer, I favor the metric system which is straightforward as opposed to the US system. The fact that we're in limbo is frustrating, from a scientific aspect.

Gas in Toronto is an average of $1.379 per L for Regular (87). One side of YYZ is about 10 cents cheaper as are Costco gas stations. Prices like that make owning a modest car much more attractive. I'd hate to be the guy who bought a 5.7L truck just to look cool.

3.75/gal is about the norm here in West LA. We're already into the summer cycle, but I'm holding out hope that we'll be into the the low to mid 4s by year end.

Absolutely true. Leftovers of the imperial system are everywhere. Even where they shouldn't be - such as health care. Right now I have to do a 3 day record of everything I'm eating, as it is a part of my cardiac rehabilitation. And guess what? Serving sizes in the pre-printed booklet are in ounces (weight and fluid), cups and spoons. No grams and milliliters.
It is similar in stores too. Every store chain is using prices per pound instead of prices per kilogram. Oddly enough, the only exception is Costco. Their prices are all per kilogram.

Due to their love for small trucks fuel cost per distance is probably the same, right?

What is it with sulfur content in petrol and diesel in the US, Canada?

Region where I live ( near the border to Danmark ) E5 and E10 are either .02 or .04 € apart.
Fuel price per liter over the day jojos from 1.45..1.50 down to 1.30 € from early morning to ( later ) afternoon.

Same here in southern Germany, the price fluctuates quite a lot during the day, and even more so if there's a public holiday like yesterday. On normal days in the afternoon between 1500 and 1800 Diesel goes for about 1.15 euros a litre, petrol around 1.35.
It pays to use a price comparison app, often there's a 20ct difference between morning and afternoon, so when I'm empty and need 88 litres of Diesel that's 17.6 Euros saved, not too bad. Then again that gives me 1000km range at a chilled cruise speed of 200km/h on the autobahn, did I mention I love my car? :D

$0.56/litre for 95 Octane here in Malaysia, while the premium 97 Octane fuel costs $0.62/litre. Diesel meanwhile costs $0.55/litre.

The price is a controlled float set by the government - however for the past few weeks the prices were stagnant on the account of the upcoming general election. And the funny thing is there are some Malaysians who thinks the price is too damn high!

Except our whole way of life is set up around cheaper gas prices. It's not like most Americans can take the train if fuel prices go up.

Just filled up with BP Ultimate Diesel in Elche, Alicante, Spain. Paid 1.31Euros/L, but that should last the better part of a month.

1,77 USD/litre in Denmark, or 6,70 USD/gallon. Prices have gone up by around 10% over the last month; did someone capsize an oil rig?

Sorry. I should have written most cars in North America. Even the 465hp LT1 could run on 87AKI, albeit premium (91AKI) is recommended. And guess what - even those downsized European engines that found their way to North America - such as VW's 1.4 TSI or GM's 1.4 Ecotec - run on 87 AKI gasoline. They have to. Nobody would buy a compact car requiring premium fuel.


That's in case of a serious emergency, my LS7 runs like doo doo on anything less than 91, heck evry 3-4 tanks I throw a few gallons of 100 in it.
