Re: What are your gas prices?

1.659 €/litre = 8.20 $/US gallon here in my fashionable neck of the wood.

Not bad.

Re: What are your gas prices?

For the past few months, regular (87-octane) gas has been hovering around $4.00/gallon in my not-quite-fashionable neck of the woods.

General Motors and Japanese Honda announced they are putting millions into new hydrogen fuel cell research and development, they expect there to be a huge current in new high tech cars and for many US families to adopt fuel cell vehicles by 2020. I think announcements like this will help car owners, prices and transport.
Fuel cells generate power for electric vehicles. Electric vehicle = no stick shift. Feh.

Just about $8/gallon here for diesel. Having said that, the car does 50-60mpg combined and I don't drive to commute.

No worries. As I understand it, European cars are more fuel efficient. With my new Ford Fiesta I can easily get 19 km/litre (45 miles/US gallon).

Also, usually I don't use my car for my commute, so it's not a big deal.

Re: What are your gas prices?

I think part of that is down to European regulations on emissions as well as the ludicrous petrol/diesel prices with have to pay in Europe. These days how many miles/km it will do per litre/gallon can be a selling point.
