    fuel like for your car?
    or for your house (heating)?

    if for your car, then it's around 2.99 a gallon

    2.99 USD = 3.37904 AUD
    United States Dollars Australia Dollars
    1 USD = 1.13011 AUD 1 AUD = 0.884867 USD​

    Yep for your car, i got two tanks in my car cost $100 each to fill both up, so thats $200 gone already on a good holiday, lol, i can get to Coffs Harbour from here just on both tanks without stopping to refuel, the killer is having to fill both tanks up as soon as i get there, lol it's 742 km – about 9 hours 42 mins from here where i am to Coffs Harbour

    It's 109.9 here, by the litre.

    1.09 CAD = 1.18575 AUD
    Canada Dollars Australia Dollars
    1 CAD = 1.08784 AUD AUD = 0.919249 CAD


    So, if 1 US gallon = 3.7854118 litres then our US gallon would cost 4.16 CAD per gallon or 4.00458 USD.

    We're getting hosed.

    If one US gallon is 3.7854118 litres, then he's paying 0.789 per litre, USD. or 0.819842 CAD or 0.891310 AUD per litre. Frigging cheap, comparatively.

    it dropped here again $2.79..I was really shocked at how good my gas mileage was considering I have a brand new Chevy Silverado V6 it's exactly 600 miles from here in NC to NJ shore..I still had a quarter tank when I arrived!
    I could only imagine if I had my tailgate down what I woulda had! :eek:

    Yeah the gas prices blow. Around here it's about 2.89 a gallon.

    It's not too bad though, I usually just ride around on my Ninja so the gas mileage kicks ass. About 50 miles to the gallon.

    It's down to $2.62 here hopefully it keeps dropping!

    Damn, I think I'm moving east then. It was dropping before but it seems to have leveled off at about 2.80-2.90ish depending on the part of the state. Up north in the "Big city" it's at like 2.95 I think.

    Refined octane price is the least of our worries. Looking ahead, I anticipate a far greater problem when fossil hydrocarbons become expensive: Plastics are useful beasties- notwithstanding health, pollution concerns re. Phthalates.
