It's about $1.06 - $1.08 per litre on average, although over east it's gotten up to $1.30. I always thought it was really expensive, but looking at 2.28 euro it looks rather cheap now. I can still remember the days when it would be around 60c per litre. Aaah, times long gone.
The reason it's expensive in Australia though, is because the half the cost of petrol is in government excises. They get so mush money from tax off petrol that they're unwilling to reduce the excises to bring down the cost of petrol.
People in America: you have it lucky. $3.00 a gallon is a lot cheaper then here. A gallon is a lot more then a litre (about 4.5 litres I think), which means that, in Australia, the average price would be about $4.73 a gallon (up to $5.85). sadblauw

you americans dont know how damn spoiled you are! is nearly 8$ a gallon here! That is the double of your price, and the case is similar in rest of europe too. I cant even recall when it was as cheap as over there in the US now..

It pisses me off how you complain about such little... seems like your gasoline price is more important than both the iraq war and the latest hurricane situation.

isnt the european gallon like 4.5 litres and the american gallon 3.8 litres? I think I heard that somewhere and would like confirmation.

Gas for me right now is 1.30 a litre

someone did a conversion to USD and told me it comes to about 4.84 a gallon.

There is no European Gallon, only an English one...

*Fadem slaps US and UK for not using the SI

anyway

1 US Gallon = 3,78541 litres
1 UK Gallon = 4,54609 litres

Europe does not use gallon, but use litre instead. Only UK use gallon, but they do indeed use a different version than usa. I converted the price to US gallon.

http://www.aftenposten.no/english/local/article110747 7.ece <--- article about norwegian prices.. "In Troms° in northern Norway the cost of gasoline has passed the NOK 13 per liter (USD 7.85 per gallon) mark and experts expect more hikes."

$3 for a gallon, that's incredibly cheap lach1 It's much more expensive here, and I don't here so many people complaining about it. People are more worried about the oil prices.
