Gas over $3

Dang! Our gas prices have gone over $3.00 per gallon at our neighborhood Holiday station. How does that compare with gasoline where you live?

  1. The price varies, but it's about $20 for 20 liters (the prices are quoted in 20 liter chunks), so i guess that's about $5 for a little more than 1 gallon.

  5. Well, Leif, here in SW Michigan the signs read $3.19 -- highest we have seen yet. I am so happy to have my Prius, which also barges nicely through the snow on a "lean diet."

  6. In the Netherlands we pay 7,17 dollar per gallon, so it is not so bad in the USA.

  7. Gas runs about $2.79 - $2.89 per gallon here in Houston/Cypress, Texas. For those of us who shops at Krogers Grocery Store, we get an additional $0.10 per gallon discount when we use their gas station immediately in front of the store. I have a hybrid car so it has saved me on gas.

  11. Here in Israel a gallon of 95 octane now costs about $8.
    Last week the price was hiked by 0.43 shekels and went up for the first time ever to 7.10 shekels (about $2) per liter.
    Luckily I don't have a car. But the bus fares also went up.

  13. How about $7.32 a gallon?
    Calculation: 1 US gallon = 3.78 litre*€1.49/litre*1.30 $:€

  18. A litre over here ranges between 1,40 € and 1,60 €, while petrol for heating this year amounted to about 0,8 €.

    Most of the time we wear pullover and have the air condition running.

    The prices of gas, indeed a great mean to measure time and life. May it be good for you all.

  19. We are holding fast at $2.95 per gallon here. The cost noted by some of our blogmates sounds like a good reason to go for a walk with your camera.

  23. The price on gas in Oslo is about 12 NOK per liter, that is approx $2. If I've done this correctly it'd mean that we'd pay approx $7,6 per gallon. So.. nothing to complain about. ;)

  24. I remember well the severe winter during this time of the year. Despite that, Minnesota is my favorite place, by far.

  25. Here in NZ, we pay $1.90/liter. I think that comes out to a bit over $5US/gallon, but don't quote me!!
