    Not that bad, really, compared to what you usually see in Europe.

    HEy Randomnity, have we checked to see if we're from the same place?

    Lane and I actually did end up being from (essentially) the same place (not that we know each other, but that I know I had seen her IRL before).

    It's around $0.91/L here in Calgary, so about 2.80USD/gal.

    The oil comes from here too, but we don't have any refineries either.

    $2.89 a gallon here--but's it's been coming down fast.

    Only about 15 cents more here then (well, 10-15). Didn't know the difference was that big.

    well euro to dollar is 1.25 at the moment I think. that is 1.3 * 1.25 . And Litre to gallon is 0.264 according to google. That is 1.3 * 1.25 / 0.264 = 6.15 $/gallon

    wow that's much -.-. Gonna have to accumulate some money here and emigrate to the USA
    It's approximately the same here too, even if recently it has slumped down a bit.

    That always gets me. What's the deal with refineries? From what I gather there are several, many in TX, but you don't hear about new ones being developed and the existing ones are running at capacity and virtually in shambles. I keep wondering why that is? Is it just unprofitable to create a new refinery (guess so, since it improves the fuel supply and lowers prices as a result)?

    It's like a buck here right now, but I think that's per litre, bot gallon, so I don't know what the exchange is between currency and metric systems.

    Long lead time, high capital cost, large political influence, and a semi-monopoly (ie: yes re: supply and lower prices).
