    Angry Fuel pricing

    How much do you pay for fuel?

    Prices in Finland:

    1.60 EUR/litre = 2.38 USD/litre = 9 USD/gallon (average RON95 & RON98).

    AND

    The price of a new car in Finland is roughly 50% tax, e.g.,
    Toyota Prius 1.8 Hybrid Synergy Drive e-CVT, price 39,893.07 EUR/ 59,281.00 USD

    1.88$/liter here. I guess I am lucky, I live at 2km from where I work. Other that that I use around 50 liter/2 months.

    How many Americans here would pay that?

    I think it comes as a shock when they fill their hire cars up and look at the price, then convert it to USD

    Eh?? A US Gallon is smaller than an Imperial gallon so should cost less 3.78L / 4.54L

    Using $1.67 / £ I get $8.59 / US Gallon

    I'm paying $1.39/liter here on the east coast of Canada. Sigh. Back in 2008 the price was under $1.00/liter... how I miss those days.

    Its so not cool how the prices go up and down daily, but our government here in Canada does not care because the higher the prices go more taxes for them, we produce crude in western Canada and ship it all to the US. What a great idea

    Here in Florida, regular gas it going for $3.85/gal. A few years back it was almost $5 per gal for premium and filling up a car with a 21 gal tank is a pain. I can only imagine how annoying it is for those across the pond paying 2x to 3x more.

    Almost the same in NL, 1.65 EUR/L. Always strange to see people in the USA whining about expensive gas

    This has nothing to do with population control - Its all about the oil companies ripping us off and no one is doing anything about it.

    To be fair, the countries with very low gasoline prices (e.g. Venezuela's ~7 cents per gallon, along with some Arab countries) do so by heavily subsidizing their gasoline prices. In other words, the government pays much of the cost. Venezuela frames it as being a fairness concept (something along the lines of, "We have an immense amount of oil, and we're willing to spend some of our national oil resource profits on subsidies to keep gas prices down for our people.").

    Hi Mike, - its a very complex issue -- yes i agree the countries with low gasoline prices subsidize the price to their country, typically as owners of the gas company that sells it -- the main problem I have with the gas and oil companies is that there is no real competition among them. How do 8 major oil companies raise their prices by 30% over 7 days due to a civil war in Libya. Canada imports exactly zero oil from Libya - but our gas prices went for about 1.10 a liter to about 1.45 liter in less than 2 weeks - all on a Friday --

    In Toronto, Canada -- the summer trend is here
    Thursday end of day prices will rise 5%
    on Monday after rush hour - Thursday midday - will be cheapest

    that's what i think we all get pisses at

    To address that above part specifically, isn't that the gas station owners...?

    I wasn't aware that oil prices changed in such a way that at Monday after rush hour (in Canada) the retail gas prices would fall, or that Thursday mid-day would be especially low for retail gas prices -- in terms of being due to anything other than the local stations' price policies. It seems more like a gas station issue, but who knows?

    (But yes, in general, the rising gas prices across the board are frustrating!)

    Everything is about the bottom line. From what I know, Canada doesn't have a whole lot of oil but the province of Alberta does and with that said we are the United States main trading partner. We sell Oil to the United States and then buy it back from them . The corporations run the oil operations and from a corporate stand point, it makes great business sense to sell our Oil to the US with a population of 311 Million Vs. selling directly into the Canadian market with a population of 35 Million.

    In order to confirm these details I visited the Department of Energy's website. I took a look at what they have to say about the matter and it turns out that they have some great information posted publicly on their website. Below is a list of the "Crude Oil and Total Petroleum Imports Top 15 Countries"

    http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/pub/oil_gas...nt/import.html

    It looks like there are only 3 middle eastern countries on the top 15 list and Canada is number One (1).

    At the moment, my SUV costs about $160.00 - $170.00 to fill up at $1.38CAD/Litre and I need to fill up at least once a week. I heard the cost per Litre in Canada will be $1.50CAD/Litre by the end of May and at about $1.80CAD/Litre by the end of August. With that said, we are paying more for Gas than the Americans .

    Unfortunately, there isn't much we can do and I highly doubt that they will drop or reverse the cost per Litre. I believe that, within the next 7-10 years driving your own vehicle will become a luxury Vs. an individuals choice.

    Over the course of the past 4-5 months I've seen people fill up their car for $8, $12 and $14 at the pump. That will get them about 5-8 litres of gas. Even if they plan on driving locally within their municipality, 8 litres of gas won't get you much mileage.

    You three make some new interesting points in the prices and how they do come about. But honestly I'm just a middle classed male, with a family. If prices here in the states go any higher. I might be looking into buying a bike. Yes, some other places around the world got it good right now. But just wait til everyone gets effected. And I think personally the only reason why the United States have raised there prices, is because they are so far into debt.

    I mean Fuel has been around for how long? And who is getting rich off what? It certainly isn't us normal folk. When I got to drop a check into my entire gas tank something is majorly wrong. What other country is cheap on gas I might move over there. When my new neighbor asks me why I came there, I will be a wise guy and say

    To stock up on gas before they ruin it here too

    No Actually, if you drive out of state like country wise. Its cheaper fuel always has been. Trucker stops are the best ones for me. Inner city fuel has always cost the most since the 1980's. You charge city fuel prices out of city and those gas stations would be broke.

    And heck naw, I wouldn't be caught dead paying $4.01 jesus !

    I realize that (I dont live in NYC i live 100 miles north). But even in NJ fuel is way cheaper then NY and is still 3.50/gallon. I didnt know fuel anywhere in the states is under $3.00/gallon.

    levelhosting - like i said, we are located around the corner from each other and get gas at the same places I bet. Around our parts, the weekend get-a-away up north drive - prices go up, and on Monday they are back down a few cents / liter - I believe in true capitalism,but in north America as a whole we don't have it. when was the last time you even saw a gas war? - problem is oil/gas is controlled by few - with collusion. So as a capitalist, filling up my Audi A4 with super (since it wont take regular)i want to see competition at the pumps, and if there is none - then Govt should step in and help create in some way shape or form. The reason this gets complex is that higher oil prices, begin to create inflation, which then causes higher unemployment as more business close - interest rate hikes also start, govt payouts increase as a result in increase EI, Welfare, Food stamps, etc -- in which govt start to try to collect via tax hikes, and less spending - the circle is brutal. -- in the end its not good for any of us.

    Now driving a car - WHAT ABOUT THE DAMN INSURANCE RATES!!! -
