Ah, Thanks Seb! =D

Another thing that might affect the prices, is the wage income. As in, how much people get paid.

Also, in Mexico, the government owns most (if not all) of gas stations/companies, and I think they have their own refineries. BUT there aren't high wages.

A big reason the price of petrol is soo high is because of OPEC. OPEC is an organisation made up of 13 oil producing countries which control a large amount of the production of oil. OPEC produces 35.6% of the worlds oil.

OPEC has found out that by exporting less petroleum they can make demand increase and actually get more money by exporting less petrol.

Haven't checked out prices for the last couple of days, but its bound to have increased.

Edit: ReVolver is only paying 6.70 Pesos per Litre = NZ $0.82
thats $1.20 cheaper than here!! Lucky guy.

I feel sorry for the guy paying $6.15 a gallon

I dont have a car, but for some reason oil is expensive up here in alaska even thogh WE pump it out of the ground. It also has made the price on other, non oil related things go up due to importing.

(Bread, milk, and soda for example, have higher prices here than down in the lower 48)

my 2 cents on the effect of higher gas prices.

Well, I just got back from a week away, so apologies for bumping... older stuff.

Prices vary up and down the UK, but generally they are at £1.35-40 a litre. Which equates to around £5.10 per gallon, which in Dollars, is about $10.

So yeah, don't whine about high prices.
Worst part is that around 60% of the price is tax which goes straight into the government's coffers, and they don't even use it to improve roads. I could go on, but I'll say right now that I ain't bothering with driving for some time to come, it is VERY expensive in the UK.
Also, on the road home, we drove past a rolling blockade set up by striking truck drivers, and saw several signs saying "STEAL YOUR PETROL". It is quite a bad situation actually.

Well, gas is about $4.20 USD around here, my motorcycle holds like, 4.5 gallons, so it costs about $12USD to fill it up, and it gets like 45mph at least. :)

At ridiculously high cost. Plus, it can't get you everywhere, most cities are very much alike to others around the world (subway systems and the like) and links to other cities are not the most reliable. But on the whole I guess we do have it better on public transport.

Talk about liters, not gallons. I have no idea what they are, because they're not used here.
