My bad. They've been at about par for months now, a penny or three either way. That's the number I used with my quick and dirty math. Actual numbers based on todays prices would be closer to $4.75

I can't fault 16 for the correction. It's they type of thing I'd do.

In England a litre of petrol is an average of £1.34. Our gallons are about 4.5 litres but I think an American gallon is about 3.75 litres, so we pay the equivalent of about $7.50 a gallon (US) for petrol. Yours is cheap!

I was about to say, gas in my province in Canada is about 1.25 a litre and it keeps going up about every 2 days it seems. Welcome to summer, no driving anywhere.

I remember here in Canada 10 years ago when gas prices were $0.67/liter, Food was cheap and Bus fares were $1.50 (it's $3 now). Now everything doubled, I guess that's how inflation works

Oh I can't even belive you guys, no frickin wonder the US is so high in carbon dioxide emissions.
I pay an equivalent of over 8 dollar a gallon, and thats on the cheapest station within over a hundred miles. How can the world only superpower be so unbelivably irresponsible as to even allow prices like yours? It's just entirely beyond me.

#145 Driving to college today, saw the stations raising the prices up to $1.35 to $1.37 a litre. I am cringing to see what prices summer brings. I remember bitching at age 18 that gas went up to $0.49 a litre and I had to drive a half hr to work every day. Well, I made crap money then too, but...ah, nostalgia over gas prices lol

I was confused about this FML at first, because here in Canada, gas is about $1.50 where I live... Per litre, of course, instead of gallons. Why can't the US use the same units as the rest of the world?

ARCO means Atlantic Richfield.
But the company is owned by BP, British Petroleum. (The company that ruined our gulf states but took no responsibility for doing so.)
Citgo; The company is owned by PDV America, Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A., the national oil company of Venezuela. The company has its headquarters in the Energy Corridor area of Houston, Texas

They (BP) paid for the whole clean up.. It wasn't their fault... Inspectors failed on there duty's and that resulted in an accident... Shit happens.. The gulf is pretty good now.

Less interesting fact. Exxon was rebranded from Esso in the early seventies or so....

@34 I hope you're not saying that BP actually completed the cleanup because there's still tonnes of oil globs in the gulf. They get washed to shore during every storm. There are also a lot of people who haven't been adequately compensated for losing their livelihood.

Very true #34....although BP provided some compensation, it was no where near what it should have been. A lot of people got money that shouldn't have, as they lied on their paperwork, and a lot of people that got money didn't get anywhere close to what they deserved. I live in the panhandle of Florida, and although our beaches didn't have tons of oil that we could really see, we lost a lot of business that year and tons of money. I was able to file a claim and receive some compensation, though it was not even close to what I lost. Same goes for a lot of people I know. Meanwhile, the county won't even settle for $9 million. Wish I could get a small chunk of that!

Well actually #17 your facts are slightly wrong. BP is now owned 60% by America. As such, it is no longer called British Petroleum. It was re-branded years ago as 'Beyond Petroleum'.

Gas actually is that cheap here in Texas... Passed several stations earlier that were 3.26

A Prius can actually be more expensive, considering the battery has to be replaced so often. Also, the dead batteries are dumped off the coast of China, so it really doesn't help the environment.
