Price of gas

Is it me or have the prices for gasoline gone up drasticly as of recently here in the US? I just went to the pump and it was almost $1.979 for premium and that is here in Iowa. (we have some of the lowest gas prices out there, that ethanol stuff is cheap here) If it is that expensive here I wonder what it is like around the rest of the US. Anybody else know what I'm talking about?

p.s. Off to take my last final of my undergraduate career

Let me have petrol at price any day of the week and i could sell it by the oil tanker load. yeah prices have hit a 14 year high today on the stock exhange due to middle east instablitity and reduction in production. We are paying about $5.65 per US gallon.


Its going to go up before it comes back down so go fill up your jerry cans. although an american car doesnt go that far on a jerry can!

One perk of the uk is we have better grade fuel, 95 or 97 octane.

We have the cheapest refinary prices in europe but the most expancive fuel, we pay $3.85 tax per us gallon, then 17.5% Sales tax on top.

I guess that prizes are in US$ per gallon, aren't they?

In most European countries prizes are in € per litre.
In Spain prizes vary between 0.982 and 1.189 US$/L for 95 octanes unleaded, and we have one of the cheapest fuel prizes in Europe. Driving is becoming an expensive hobby.

ps: € - US$ exchange at today's rate is 1.1832 US$ per 1€.

Supongo que esos precios están en US$ por galón, ¿no?

En muchos países europeos los precios están en € por litro.
En España los precios varían entre 0.830 y 1.005 €/L para la gasolina sin plomo de 95 octanos, y tenemos uno de los precios de gasolina más baratos de Europa. Conducir se está convirtiendo en un caro hobby.

pd: el tipo de cambio € - US$ de hoy es de 1.1832 por 1€.

You don't need to remind me of our leadership short-comings...it's quite evident. That whole Iraq thing is a half-hearted attempt for whatever reason.
