Its about $3.80 here in North Carolina, I shed tears every time go to the pump. Compared to Europe, our gas is still relatively cheap. Contrary to popular belief the unrest in the Middle East isn't driving up oil prices, Saudi Arabia has increased its output to compensate for the drop in Libya's output. The increase in price is due mainly to excessive speculation.
Senator Bernie Sanders put out a statement citing a report produced by Goldman Sachs, part of that statement said, "According to Goldman Sachs, 20 percent of the price of crude oil is due to excessive speculation. Other experts believe that excessive speculation is driving up crude oil prices by 50 percent. This means that Americans are paying a Wall Street premium of between 70 cents and $1.63 a gallon every time they fill up their gas tanks."
This seems like the most logical explanation to me because I've been hearing reports from people in the Middle East that oil tankers are lined up at the docks, if there was a shortage of oil this wouldn't be the case.

In New York my family says that its about 4.03 a gallon. It's crazy. In Colorado (Denver) is about 3.79 on average. Over here in Stockholm, once you convert both price and and liter it works out to be about 7.5 - 8.0 per gallon! You gotta love mass transportation. smile.gif

2.24 New Zealand dollars = 1.769152 U.S. dollars
1 US gallon = 3.78541178 litres

Getting crazy expensive...
$6.70 per gallon here in NZ (lucky we don't have to drive so far)

I like GMCs sudden subject changes:
Osama Bin Laden is dead... oh dang look at those petrol costs... lucky my guitar doesn't have a V8!

Oh man, I though only our country was expensive. Here its 1.3 euro per liter so it's similar like in Spain.

Recently I was really thinking about it and maybe converting my car to TNG (natural gas) which is about 0.65 euro per litre.
I also found some cars on the market that are very fuel efficient like - Subaru Rex from 1989 smile.gif))

I guess I'll have to convert to bicycle transport in the end smile.gif)

Gas/Petrol Prices in Europe and most of the world are evidently just INSANE and it's getting that way here. I drive a Caddy and it only takes premium so it's around $100 U.S. to fill up. That's enough to make anyone earning American Dollars choke. I say we abandon the Dollar an Embrace The Euro! Our currency and all our money would be worth more on the spot smile.gif

But prices should be left in Dollars. Instant discount on everything. Long live the Euro! At least until the Germans decide to bring back the Deutchemark once they get tired of all the bailouts. smile.gif

Now that is a topic switch, from Osama to defunct German currency!

I think it's sad. Both sides fight for the right they believe in and the best for their own people. I'm not going to celebrate anyones death.

Btw, we pay about 2.5/3 US dollers pr litre, stop complaining tongue.gif
Expensive gasoline is good if it makes people drive less.

The problem is, less gasoline bought means ,less revenue for the government,meaning higher taxes just to pay for the old government ,not to mention the now increased government,
so, once again it is a double wammy for the tax payer, and this is why higher gas prices are not a good thing for this economy
