Wed. April 27, 2011: Just above 4 USD/gallon in Moscow, Russia for 95 octane. Interesting thing: Moscow oblast is well supplied with gas, other regions, especially in Sibiria are not, leading to gas shortages and price increases. Apparently 4 USD is too low, because even state owned oil companies sell off their production on the world market at higher prices.
Back in Germany on Friday April 29, 2011: Super goes for 1,60 Euro/liter, which is around 9 USD/gallon
Sorry, but this just wasn't in my planned budgetary expenses for the current fiscal year. I am going to have reduce spending in this category...and deny you any further increases until I receive sufficient funds to meet this unplanned expenditure.
Over and Beyond Expense: Denied*
(* In Other Words: I will be watching closely, every dollar that I spend at the pump.)
That's $9.73 per British gallon. A US gallon is approximately 80% of a British gallon. That means you're approximately the same as here in Scotland, where it worked out at $7.87 per US gallon on 31st March.
...cheapest I've seen is $1.29 a litre (lowest grade) (west coast Canada) - there's about 4 litres per gallon of gas - so it's expensive, however it's really not when you look at prices outside of N.A.
Am on a business trip and paying from USD $3.63 to $3.79 in the area they say is the most inexpensive in the country.
It might be cheaper in Wyoming but won't get close to there. I am not rich so even these prices hurt. It's going to take a lot of business just to repay for the fuel for this trip. So far this trip is not paying its way. Might have been better to stay home. LOL
3.69$ gal in SW Missouri,... i drive a 3/4 ton truck,.... it hurts but i pay it and try not to gripe too much,.... you gota get to work you know,.... my first hour and a half wages at work each day is spent on the fuel needed to get there.
while i'm greatfull that fuel is far cheaper in the states than in europe,... try and remember that where i live and 5 generations of mine have lived,... we are very litteraly 30 miles from the nearest ANYTHING,... that green friendly bicycle is just not an option here in the the sticks with the hicks who drive trucks because we need them,... here, a truck is not a fashion statement, it is an honest form of transportation that will reliably get you from point A to point B,... unlike those little cute eco friendly shoe boxes that wouldnt get 5 miles down my roads. i drive a truck because its required, not because i cant win pi**ing for distance contests.
I also live in SW Missouri and we have both a truck and one of those cute little eco friendly shoe boxes, in the form of a Subaru Forester. The AWD comes in handy here and the gas mileage is much better than the truck.
With all the rain we're getting, I joked this morning that our driveway has little mini-waterfalls in it, so I know what you mean about needing a truck.
i scared the daylights out of a local would be politician, he drove up at my place go out and anounced tha he would like to talk about roads and bridges,... to which i replied,... "gravel roads are made of gravel, thats how they got te name, if someone doesnt like that they should pack up there rotten grandkids they got stuck raising, load up the SUV that you've never engaged the 4wd on and go back to the city where the roads are paved,... i wana talk about jobs"
We hit as low as $2.99 about 10 days ago but then it shot up .45 overnight last weekend (I think because of the Super Bowl - we are 50 mile outside of Indy - it's amazing how inflated the hotel prices went up because of it.)
Hi, I was just wondering where in the world HubPages users live.Mostly in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, India? Let's see if we can find out. Although not very scientific (in fact, not at all!) I thought it might...
Most of the times people may call House a Home, yes I understand them completely.But is it the same as having a big cozy house in another country and still call it home?I have had this experience, and no matter how I...
This may not be news to a whole lot of people, but, I am getting sick of this. Why isn't the Government doing anything about it, especially when they know that it is killing our economy? Not, to mention that we are...
Much of what I read on the internet, newspaper and especially social network sites like Facebook is NEGATIVE. People often see to be complaining about something. I admit there is a lot about which we can and maybe even...
