    Last night when we passed the station gas here was $2.85 for regular unleaded and $2.95 for premium unleaded and $3.05 for diesel . It makes me appreciate my new car that is getting 34 MPG on the highway.

    On a positive note here in Ohio they've started construction on one ethanol plant and are in talks for a second one, each one will produce millions of gallons a year. This will not only help with fuel development but also help the farmers as they will get a better price per bushel for corn and the by products from ethanol will still be able to be used for feed (mainly cattle).

    Hopefully there will be more of this progress in the near future.

    Gas here is $3.25 a gallon...E85 (made from corn ) is also $3.25 a gallon. My experience with E85 is that my car was peppier...more "get up and go!"...but got less miles per gallon...so no savings there :-(

    Great for the farmers, but they still don't smell very good.

    saturday it was 3.05. Sunday it went down to 2.99. Naturally, I had to fill up on saturday! The good news is that I have a small car and $30 fills it for now.

    I am not sure what gas prices are here today in Northern Virginia. But when I filled up on Sunday it cost me $98! I could have fallen down at the pump. We have a Suburban 2500. We say it passes everything but the gas station.

    I paid $2.87 for 87 octane today, last year the cost was $2.20 per gallon, figure the math, no wonder we are filling the pinch in the pocketbook. Yikes.

    I know we are paying less than other countries, but you have to realize that the other countries, the majority of the cost is tax.
    In the mountains here we are at about 2.99 , it's less if I drive all the way to town.


    NEW YORK (CNN/Money) – Gasoline prices in the United States, which have recently hit record highs, are actually much lower than in many countries. Drivers in some European cities, like Amsterdam and Oslo, are paying nearly 3 times more than those in the U.S.

    The main factor in price disparities between countries is government policy, according to AirInc, a company that tracks the cost of living in various places around the world. Many European nations tax gasoline heavily, with taxes making up as much as 75 percent of the cost of a gallon of gasoline, said a spokesperson for AirInc.

    In a few Latin America and Middle-East nations, such as Venezuela and Saudi Arabia, oil is produced by a government-owned company and local gasoline prices are kept low as a benefit to the nation's citizens, he said. All prices updated March, 2005.

    Nation City Price in USD Regular/Gallon
    Netherlands Amsterdam $6.48
    Norway Oslo $6.27
    Italy Milan $5.96
    Denmark Copenhagen $5.93
    Belgium Brussels $5.91
    Sweden Stockholm $5.80
    United Kingdom London $5.79
    Germany Frankfurt $5.57
    France Paris $5.54
    Portugal Lisbon $5.35
    Hungary Budapest $4.94
    Luxembourg $4.82
    Croatia Zagreb $4.81
    Ireland Dublin $4.78
    Switzerland Geneva $4.74
    Spain Madrid $4.55
    Japan Tokyo $4.24
    Czech Republic Prague $4.19
    Romania Bucharest $4.09
    Andorra $4.08

    That is kind of neat to see how different it is in other places. I keep hoping ours will drop by a few cents at least, and try to look at all the stations I pass so I can keep tabs on the cheapest one to go to. Thanks for posting that spam!
