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

Great, now they just need to start paying us in US dollars.

x2.

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).

4. 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.

5. \$2.89 a gallon here--but's it's been coming down fast.

o_O

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)?

9. 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).
