On Friday I paid $2.86 a gallon in Ft. Laderdale by the dealer, which is a blue collar area. I came back to the expensive Miami Beach to find the tourist bleeding places selling it for $2.24 a gallon for Premium.

You need to live in Ft. Worth, the gas is always cheap there.

Very interesting map. I see my New York State is right up there with the highest. I guess those figures include the taxes, so I guess it makes sense. NY likes taxes.

Come to think of it, what would be even better would be to see a line chart over time. That way you would know if everybody was going up or staying the same or what. Also be interesting to see it without taxes. I'll have to go back and look around some more...

Hello Wooley, did you convert litres to imperial or US gallons? Saw my first 0.87 per Ltr today, heard on the news that Asda were going to drop theirs to 0.82 by the weekend!:bannana:

very (very very) rough conversion - about £1/l, bout 5l/gallon, bout $1.7 =£1 very rough, but price far more than our US friends (might be worth goin over there just to top-up :D )

well if it's 1 pound in the UK per liter.

1 pound is 1.89$ at the moment

1 US Gallon is 3.785 Liters
1 UK Gallon is 4.546 Liters(un-related)

so compared to the US we pay $7.15 per US gallon in the UK(county durham).

In surrey we pay $6.22

You can tell I'm excited to be back at work. ;)

Uk prices are ridiculous. costs me £65 to fill up my SLK on super unleaded.
however our petrol holds more RON than the US markets petrol, so it isbetter and more efficient for the car. but i dont think it justifies 700% more.
