I filled up today, and noticed that the price has gone up. Again.

Nothing unusual about that here in the UK anyway! Had a look at the price of crude oil - it's cheaper now than it was a year ago. Shame it's not reflected at the pumps.

Anyway....

It's quite an international gathering on this site, and I was wondering what you pay in your country for fuel. Just out of interest!

If you could please say what country, ron, price per litre or gallon would be great!

So...

England, 95 ron, 136.4 pence per litre

Lawrenceville, IL, USA: 3.20/gallon for premium (91).

Diesel - in Illinois running tax free red Agriculture Diesel in your personal truck or car is verbotten! However, I hear that some people do it. They should be ashamed of themselves for cheating the tax man!:)

1.49p for Shell's finest yesterday. Didn't even complain after the week of beautiful, top down weather - was looking for excuses to drive.

Average about $4.00 per gallon for premium in Orange County. Price is (very slowly) sliding down at the moment. Chevron is one of the more expensive brands.

1.25/l here in Ottawa on Tuesday (that's about $4/gal US). Tomorrow is Ultramar day - super at regular price!
Actually a US Gallon = 3.78541178 liter... so 1.25 * 3.785 = $4.73

As Ponia said: Its roughly $4.00 a US Gallon around here for 91.. I think its like $4.10 or $4.15 or something although I haven't filled up in a couple weeks.

Premium is $3.80 something here in the Northwest, but I do have to say, the tank in my 55 is frickin HUGE!!! Going from $30+ in my Escort to $50+ per tank was a shocker!

Same as the 350, 18.5gal...

Shell V-Power is around $3.40 in Indy which "saves" ~$8 on a typical fill-up...

Here, in Utah, I'm paying about $3.80 for Premium (91 octane).

Just as an FYI, I know Mercedes says to use 95 octane. But, if you live at a higher altitude, 91 octane is perfectly fine. Higher altitudes allow you to perform just fine with lower octane. Besides, you won't be able to find it unless you go to a handful of places that sell "racing" fuel.

So, if you live at higher altitudes, and were worrying about this, don't. :)
