Petrol is about 90 pence - £1.00 per litre here, which is equivalent to somewhere around 1.30 euros. Sorry I'm not too good at thinking in dollars but I just did a quick currency conversion on Google and it came out to $1.75 per litre.

Yes, I'm always having a good laugh when Americans complain about gas prices of about 2 dollars per GALLON :lol:

Then again, driving all those heavy, big cubic capacity and non-economical cars that can be found on American roads which need about 20 or 25 liters per 100 kilometers could be taking its toll....

Are you referring to the Toyota Highlander/4Runner, et. al.? I could never drive one of those, since not only is not economical; it's also not a wise choice for a single woman like myself-unless, of course, I was going for "flash" points.

Gas prices are really high here. Gas prises in Europe are only more expensive than here because your governments put such a huge tax on it, which they should do here as well.

I drive a tiny Chevy Cavalier so I get really good gas mileadge. Not all Americans are environment-hating gas guzzlers.

I'd love to drive a hybrid but most of them are standard transmission not automatic... so I'd have to learn how to drive one of those first. I drive a Saturn SC1. I usually get about 30 mpg but on highways I can get 45 or so.

Anyway, here in central NJ it's around $2.29. It annoys me that I see so many cheaper gas prices. People always used to say that NJ would tend to be cheaper since we have so many of the refineries here. :shrug: Oh well. In PA it's cheaper than here... I saw it around $2 in PA.

I love the look of my car...that's it, plain and simple. Plus, I feel safer driving a larger car and being higher up.

I don't understand why most cars don't drive on diesel which consumes less gas and emitts les CO2. Boy can I hardly wait when oil starts running out in 50 years and alternative fuels will be used. I won't complain trust me.
I pay 1.59 CHF per litre for now. But I drive a Opel Corsa which does not use as much fuel as an SUV. That's nothing compared to Nigeria where some people drill holes in oil wells and scoop up the oil for use for their cars!

There is a certain seasonality effect with gas prices in the US. Prices fall after the beginning of September since the markets anticipate a fall in demand due to less transportation. An interesting thing is that prices tend to adjust instantaneously to negative news related to crude oil. That is, gas prices go up immediately. However, when positive news occur, gas prices tend to not drop as rapidly.

Bump, because a lot has changed since then :lol

Middle of the week, I saw the prices for a liter of (95)-gas at 1.53€/liter at most German gas stations.

The funny thing currently is that (91)-gas and Diesel gas are almost identical. Diesel gas is even one or two cents more expensive :lol: All the people who bought a Diesel must feel pretty fooled currently. At the moment they are paying more and paid more already buying the car (in the hope of having long-term savings because Diesel gas usually was about 20-30 cents/liter cheaper.)

Austria is at around 1.30€/liter for (95)-gas, but almost the same equal prize for Diesel. Northern Italy has almost Germany-like prices and is even more expensive when it comes to Diesel gas (about 5 cents/liter more than for normal gas).

The current price policy here in Germany is just ridiculous if you're paying almost the same for Diesel, (91), (95) and (98) gas, maybe with a difference of three or four cents currently which was a span of like 30 cents about half a year ago or so. So in other words: they're ripping off everybody equally

Honestly, though, I don't mind that much--as long as this means less traffic and better public transportation.
Regarding public transportation, the price development should be exactly the opposite way. But in Germany and Austria (the countries I know) the prices for public transportation are rising all the time. I understand that public transports are also closely connected to the oil prices, but these are wrong politics IMO to revise the opinion of the people and to have less cars on the road. A train with a weight of 400 tons doesn't care much if you have 1000 poeple more or less on it, it always needs about the same energy. Make the tickets much cheaper compared to going by car and achieve a better efficiency and capacity utilization. This leads to many fewer cars on the street, saves the customer and the train company money and is good for the environment.


example:

Let's presume I want to go from my hometown to Nuremberg, about 200 km away, this evening.

ticket price for train: 52 Euro (single way), about two hours of travel time

Let's say my car needs 8 liter per 100km then the estimated cost is 16 liters x 1,50 Euro = 24 Euro. And I can do 200 km in about 2 hours as well.

52 Euro compared to 24 Euro. And if I went with anoter person there, I need two tickets of the same price whereas the gas consumption of my car will be still about the same.

Such things are just not right, I have no incentive to go by train that distance except I know of my travel plans far in advance (cheaper ticket) or if I choose slower trains which need one or two hours more to the same destination.

lol, because there is little the oil companies have to do with this...

the rise in the price of oil is mostly due to the fact that its priced in dollars and the dollar has and will continue to devalue...

blame the fed if you want to blame anyone, well them and the government for spending what they dont have...

And, blame ourselves for opposing the expansion of domestic drilling and refinery capacity while expecting supplies to match the growth in our population.

There is the US$ situation for sure, but there is also a lot of speculation. Anything these days become an excuss that leads to higher gas prices. Rumors of a hurricane, anticipated political tensions, oil reserves...

You just know some traders are just too happy to abuse the situation. This is what is the most frustrating.

That's why they are building hybrid SUVs :tape: I understand at certain level why SUV is so common. I live in semi rural area. Lots of roads (paved or dirt) have "washes" (artificial dry creek for drainage of rain water). Half inch of rain and you'll be stuck in your home without an SUV or a truck to get you out.

that will never happen.

all the assets of middle eastern countries are denominated in USD. their currencies are also pegged to the USD. If they depeg or switch the standard currency of oil trading, they will be subjected to substantial losses.

the strength of the USD is only one factor in the price of crude currently. Yes, its true that oil denominated in euros has not changed as much as the usd denominated price, but other fundamentals of supply/demand indicate that production has not increased over the past 5 years and that demand in Asia/middle east is increasing. inventory levels are within the 5 yr average.

Also, higher production costs, lack of expertise are also contributing to the price of crude.

in euros, crude is currently trading at ~85.9. if we use 1.56, which is the current xch rate.

in jan 07, we saw crude around 54 and usd/eur ~ 1.35. that would be 40.4

so the currency rate is only one factor.

150 by year-end is actually a conservative estimate according to many. but i dont think crude is going to spiral out of control(reaching close to 200 or reaching 150 by july 4th) like some wall street analysts think. but who knows?

Americans are illegally crossing the Mexican border for cheaper fuel. The gas in Mexico is subsidised.
From today's (June 21, 2008,) Arizona Republic (Phoenix):China gas-price hike may not sap demand: Chinese motorists, long accustomed to cheap gas, seem to be taking in stride a government decision Friday to boost prices for gasoline and diesel fuel by 16 percent and 18 percent, respectively. While higher prices for China's state-controlled fuel will inevitably squeeze consumers at both filling stations and grocery stores, analysts say it is unlikely to make an immediate or huge dent in the country's hunger for oil. Chinese mororists now pay about $3.65 a gallon for gas. In the U.S., crude-oil prices on the New York Mercantile Exchange jumped more than $4 per barrel at one point on Friday after tumbling the day before, following news of China's fuel-price increases.Oil prices are subsidized...in lot's of places.

One gas station in my area is still selling regular at $3.99 9/10th. Lines are 7 cars deep at 10 pm (I counted as I waited). The police had to be called to make room for the tanker truck to refill the underground tanks -- nobody wanted to give up their place in line. The owner says he's making money due to his sales volumes and he hopes that people will remember and remain loyal if and when prices drop.

Oil Barral prices dropped quite a lot, but still the same crap in Germany, Diesel, 95 and 91 gas almost at the high same prices at about 1.50 to 1.55 Euro per liter.

No wonder they're continuing to pull us the money out of our pockets. Oil and gas companies want to use their chance to make money because in a lot of German states the school summer breaks started and many people are using their cars to go somewhere for holidays. So demand is bigger than usual.
