In the netherlands its 2.07 euro for 1 liter thats 2.50 dollars per liter or 9 dollar a gallon
Goedkope pomp in het dorp is 1,95 momenteel.
Daarom gaat iedereen naar Duitsland lol
Your country fits within a quarter of California. Of that, your biggest city would fit within San Francisco, which is our smallest major city.
Frankly, with the amount of driving we have to do, we end up paying more in gas.
Not to mention your cities are far more walkable than the car driven hellscape that is America
Been to the US twice and just can't wrap my head around how everything is just supposed to be reached by driving. Public transport is negligible outside of major cities. Hardly suitable for walking.
No wonder obesity is at an all time high in the country...
I'm the Netherlands €2 per liter is normal, which is about $8.4 per gallon.
Finland is catching up. Last year it was around 1.5€ and now 1.9€. 2€ at north
Best part is that its mostly due tax justified by our goverment telling that Finns dont care enough about enviroment.
Well we rank 20 in most polluting countries per inhabitant only US and Canada bigger countries ahead of us
Huh? Finland is like 60th when measuring polution per capite. Most of that comes from heating etc. because of pur cold weather.
stop having cold weather then... hmm maybe this global warming could come in handy....
Unfortunately we started using the term "climate change" over global warming because of short term erratic weather changes including the gulf stream being weakened from melting sea ice actually causing Europe to become *colder* in coming years.
Global warming is still accurate, as in the world overall will be warmer, but there will be drastic fluctuations between continents and it looks like Europe might be getting colder soon. Good luck to the finns.. I mean they were there right after the ice age right? 😅
So you are saying it's best to visit during the summer
Unless you want to go skiing
Netherlands or Finland?
used to cost 60€ to fill my tank when I bought my car just a couple of years ago.. now it costs almost 90€
Sheesh no wonder y’all bike everywhere
Thats pretty much the point.
That price comes from taxes
>As of 2015, petrol excise tax is EUR0.766 per litre
and there's 21% VAT on top of that.
Turns out one of the best ways to limit peoples driving is to make it cheaper to bike and use public transport.
I mean, yeah. When I lived in a large city I took a bus or walked everywhere. Then when I moved to a rural area I bought a car. My roommate hit a deer with my car last summer though and I moved into a city again(with a terribly Shitty, almost non existent public transport), so rather than buying another car I bought a bike.
I feel terribly unsafe on that bike currently because we don’t have bike lanes, not everywhere has sidewalks, and a lot of roads are not well lit. Things I never thought before I started riding my bike. I mean, I have a helmet, but back on Xmas eve of 2019 a friend was hit by a car doing everything right and wearing a helmet and still died, so that’s a bit terrifying.
I really wish the US would work on its lack of public transportation and safe commuting with bikes and on foot since the majority of the country does not have that and cars are getting more expensive to own.
In the US, you'd also have to make it *possible* to bike. A lot of places here are not reachable by bus, by train, by bike, or by vehicles with a max speed <40 mph. Not to mention very few roads here have bike lanes.
I could bike around my university campus. I don't think I could safely get more than half a mile outside of it by bike though.
Yeh the US is an infrastructure nightmare.
You've fucked up your planning to a point its going to take great effort to change things.
In the US there are many areas that you can't go anywhere with out a car
The overwhelming majority of the country is this way.
That's by design. We've designed our cities around cars so that oil companies and car manufacturers can make more money. The US could have the best public transit in the world, but we let the rich lobby against what would make people happier
And people still accelerate like crazy in their cars and consume more fuel than necessary.
yea gas prices here are absolutely fucking absurd
Same in Hong Kong damn
$7.68 a gallon for me in U.K., would cost me just shy of $100 to fill my tank.
I'd cry, it would be $187 to fill mine
When was the last time you drove 5 hours in the car? Like to go to a city to hangout? I have done multiple 3-5 hour one way trips in the us. When I lived in Kaiserslaughtern Germany, I met Germans who had never been to Paris (about 4.5 hour drive). But it’s parisss not Cleveland.
Personally? I drove 4 hrs one way to go see my parents 2 weeks ago, I do that fairly often
It is the reason why it is less a problem here in France. We dont use to drive 4 hours frequently. We prefer to take the train for these distancies and we use to buy smaller cars too..
I live in south Dakota....the nearest city major city is 50miles away to the east or 90miles to the west in wyoming
This! And it’s the last place on earth that will ever get a train.
I drive 2400 miles round trip every year to visit family. This year we also went to the smoky mountains and back which was around 1400 miles as a spur of the moment mini vacation.
It’s no big deal for Americans to drive 14-20k in a year
I live in Illinois and have relatives in Texas. 17 hour one way, 34 hour round trip. Brits have no concept of an actual long road trip haha
haha yeah I know in UK it's worse but I only average you know... 'EU countries :)
but I miss you
Miss you too :'(
I miss you too. So very, very much.
I'd cry, missing you so badly
UK is worse? I'm in the UK on holiday right now and love the prices here! I'm from the Netherlands and we pay about €2,02 at the cheapest and €2,27 at the most expensive for 1 liter! That is $2,26 and $2,54 & £1.70 and £1.90 per liter. In gallons it'd be $8,55 and $9,61 & £6.45 and £7,19.
The Netherlands is the most expensive in the world for Gas with the sole exception of Hong Kong
My friends tell me that you really don’t need a car if you live anywhere near a city.
Depends on the situation. I live fairly close to The Hague where I work. By car it's about 20-25 mins, public transport is about 1 hour. Only because parking in the city center is expensive do I take the bus.
Not really, anywhere outside of it and you want a car; public transport is severely lacking outside of the Randstad
Depends on where you live. In the Randstad you don't need one. For me taking the car to work is slower door to door than the train.
Yeah, but do you want to talk about free healthcare ?
Just to make sure, which gallon are you calculating in? Because UK gallons are significantly larger in volume than a US gallon.
25% bigger. 160 oz vs 128 oz.
How many US oz in a wizard of Oz
Why the fuck are the fucking gallons different askdnwldn
I assume its a similar reason to why an Imperial pint is 100ml larger than a US pint.
Your pints are fuckin tiny
Even mainland Europe has a bigger "Big beer" as they call it at 500ml
Yo we focus on large food portions.
A liter is a liter is a liter is a liter.... is $1.389 in Canada right now. That is 5.25 a US Gal.
The correct question to ask is "Why are you still using Gallons instead of Liters? We had a standard for 50 years!"
fuel is around £1.45 ($1.94) a litre right now, 1 US gallon is about 3.79 litres. 1.94*3.79 = $7.35 per gallon here in the UK.
It’s also worth noting that, outside of major US cities, public transportation is not a viable option. For instance where I live there is very limited busing, you can’t get everywhere in town and good luck after 4 or 5 pm. A number of years ago I lived less than 10 miles from work but could not take public transport because the busses stopped running before my shift ended.
People in cities don't realize how much of a burden high gas prices are for people who live in even moderately rural areas. I live in a metro now but growing up I had to drive 30+ miles one way to get to basically anything (restaurants, shopping, work, etc). Couple that with many people in those rural areas needing to have pickup trucks for work that get 15-20 miles per gallon and if you don't see how this is much more difficult for some folks than others, you're either a complete idiot or you have some sort of axe to grind with... someone.
It’ll cost me 120 usd to fill the tank on the car that I want (dads 2007 Honda CRV) and 100 usd on the car that I have (2007 Honda Civic). I’m a full time student and not looking forward to the running costs on either of the cars lol
How often do you have to fill up? I'm not trying to be rude I'm curious, I know that typically the UK isn't as spread out as the US is. I have to drive half an hour to the grocery store, my commute to work is almost an hour, my girlfriend is an hour-2 hours a way depending on traffic, and college is 30 minutes from work or 45 from home, as some examples. I typically have to fill up at least twice a week.
And public transportation isn't viable, a bus from school to work takes three hours.
€2/ L (~$8.49 a gallon) here in the Netherlands. Absolute bullshit
Same-ish in norway
You've hit the 2€ bar? Holy fuck.
Yeah we hit it couple of weeks (or even months) ago, gas prices here are one of the highest in the world currently. Lucky me :/
2€ here too in Finland
Im curious, do you think it’s a monopoly by the gas companies or is the govt making it intentionally expensive so ppl switch to electric/public transit? Maybe both?
$83 to fill my tank at 21.9 gallons
Almost 22 gallons? That’s insane. My car has a 14 gallon tank
My truck has a 40 gallon tank. It cost me almost $190 to fill it last week
My friend has the Ford super duty truck with a 53 gallon tank, but he also lives in Alabama and pays $1.70 a gallon

Is your business with Isengard?
Doesn't make sense to me, but then again you are very small
Foda viu, esses gringos reclamando de barriga cheia.

Well yes, but it's not like the Brazilian Real is worth anything so... it's kinda the same

Pois é, mas a Petrobras lucra em real, paga os funcionários em real, então não faz sentido comparar. Essa lei de subir gasolina junto com o preço mundial que é torta. E ninguém fala da porra do etanol que sobe junto por alguma mágica sendo que não vai petróleo. Foi mal, to exaltado
Getúlio Vargas: Cria a petrobras para proteger o mercado nacional e garantir que o Brasil fique independente do mercado internacional do petróleo...
Petrobras em 2021:
Concordo demais com isso do Etanol. A gente produz aqui, não tem porquê estar tão alto. É totalmente cartelizado e ninguém parece estar falando sobre o assunto
Pois é, sem conspiração nem nada, mas o silêncio que fazem sobre o preço do etanol é muito estranho, parece até que alguém ganha com isso
Quanto está a gasolina ao litro aí no Brasil?
R$ 7,40 em Goiás
R$6.69 em Pernambuco
Caraiu, aqui na Inglaterra está a £1.50(cerca de R$11.20). Só que o ordenado mínimo é maior também (£8.91 ou R$66.51) por hora.
É tão caro quanto parece ou a renda aí é proporcionalmente maior?
Qtos litros tem um galão?
Edit: ah, eu vi que os EUA pagam $0,92 USD/litro e na Europa varia de 1,00€ a 2,00€ ($1.12 a $2.24 USD).
Na Inglaterra a média é £1,50/litro ($2 USD)
No Brasil a média nacional está por volta de R$6,34/litro, então daria $1.13 USD.
Mas como um alemão disse aqui, nosso salário mínimo (e médio) é muito menor que o deles.

We both have pathetic dictators that rule our countries.
Don't know about the math shit and other countries but
Indians are also crying in the corner
considering current highest prices in India to be Rs.110/L, ours also turns out to be about $5.5 per gallon. Sad
And India's average wage is about $10 a day.
And the roads are such that you could never extract good mpg from even the tiny cars that we drive .

Sucks for all of you, in venezuela it’s basically free
If there's any at all!
Yeah but you're Venezuelan
But you have to live in Venezuela?
They have the oil, now they just need a population with cars.
For my fellow EU members:
3,5 for gas means 3,5 for a gallon that means 3,5 for 3,79 LITERS!!
So 3,5 are 0,92 CENT PER LITER
here in NL its over 2 EUR.. sometimes even 2,5EUR
Stop coming to belguim youre rising our prices >:(
stop shilling us your gas lol
Come to Lux!
In Ukraine it's 10€ per L
edit: I'm stupid, it's 1€
I shouldn't be allowed to work at exchange office
In Canada it’s 1.45$ per litre (Canadian dollars)
I dunno but with avg. salary of ~400€ these prices are terryfing. People here ride to EU just to buy gas for cheaper
Edit: I'm stupid. It's 1€
Respect for your correction
Na at least in Germany you pay per liter and it's about 1,60-70€ about 1,90$.
Yes I averaged the EU liter to around 1,3 EUR
Multiple that with 3,79 for a galleon and you land at 5,8 USD per gallon
here it's like €2 per liter at the moment :(
You also from the netherlands?
Belgium, may be slightly less than 2 or not, my condolences to you for having to pay for fuel right now. I heard how high it is in Netherlands.
Huh, and here in Switzerland we complain about 1.85 swiss francs (~1.75 €)
In the U.K. the average petrol price is roughly £1.50 a litre which is roughly $2 US so we pay roughly 7.6 USD a gallon. As someone who is 2 weeks away from taking a driving test in car that’s a mid range insurance group it’s pretty damn scary
1,70€ per liter (\*﹏\*;) what's wrong with you Germany in Bulgaria we have it for 0,90-1,00€
1,85 in Finland
I've seen 2,10 along highways here in the Netherlands :|
VAT plus three environmental taxes.
1.47 per litre in Canada and I'm not even in the highest part
So Canada can join the meme 😅👋👋
It's 1,60€ In France for 1L wtf
Pfff noobs, I make free gas inside my body everyday.....
That's super cheap! Here where I live in Canada it's 1.58 per liter and that's actually pretty reasonable right now. In the summer it got up to like 1.75 a liter. I would kill to pay under $1.
In my country its 0.5$ lol. But you 10mbps internet is considered insane speed so you get some you lose some
To be fair a large amount of the US would kill for 10mb/s.
Well judging from how so many people are scared of 5g, maybe it’d be more accurate to say that they’d kill to keep it away.
Meanwhile Chad Iran: 0.058 euro
Im confused do you live in Chad or Iran
He's a Chad living in Iran
No, he lives in Chad who runs.
I ran from a Chad just yesterday
He's an Iran living in Chad. No wait.
*laughs in Putin*
$2.10p/l for premium in Australia atm.
Highest it's been I believe but not %100.
You put the "$" before the dollar amount but the "%" before the percentage amount.
What the hell is going on?!
So around 2.10 x 3.79 = 7.95 per gallon in comparison to the 3.5 in the US
You see, the main difference is that in Europe, often public transportation is a valid option. In the US, you basically can't get anywhere without a car, except maybe in large cities. It's a huge country and everything is really spread out.
For example, my commute to work has me driving about 45 miles each way, so I can easily drive 500 miles in a week. I usually have to fill up about 3 times per week. If I had to pay $100 every time I filled my tank, I probably couldn't afford it.
To put things in perspective in germany 68% use the car for their daily commute. The rest is using either public transport (~15%) or cycles/walks (~17%). The average annual distance traveled by car for europe is far less than in the us, but europe is also not one big urban area. We have also rural areas, where public transport is basically useless for commuting.
Three refills for 500 miles also seems like a lot. I could go 600 with one filling (when autobahn doesn't tempt me to floor it lol).
Yeah, that seemed fishy to me too. I drive a 1.6 TDI Passat, and a full tank can get me almost 1000 km, probably less if I'm driving in urban environments. They might drive a car that has a relatively small tank (mine is about 65L), but even that seems a stretch.
Agreed. I also did some quick searching. Allegedly, the EU population density is 3.5 times higher than the US. So that in combination with car and oil lobbyists, you have less connected public transport and farther to travel where you need to go.
I feel like trains could heavily benefit you here but it seems like the train system in the us is heavily underdeveloped.
I (from germany) also have to travel long ways for work and university, about 30km (idk how many miles). But the german train system feels more than developed enough that i am able to get everywhere without owning a car.
Pffff noobs, $ 2 a litre in Uruguay....
Americans drive a lot more
I drive over 3,000 miles per month for work. About 150 miles per day.
What in the fuck, that's like going from northen edge of my country to southern edge for work, and after work you do the trip again. Jesus fuckin Christ, how can survive losing so much time for commute?
Fuck that, man. I won't commute longer than 20 minutes.
Was waiting for someone to mention this. It's not like we're walking or biking 20 miles to work each day and it's not like there's a train or bus to get us there.
My work is 10 miles from my house, I suppose you could ride a bike back and forth but I'm not riding a bicycle on the shoulder of the highway or the dark country back roads at 5am to get there
Ya, this is one of the really sad bits of this. Our infrastructure is incredibly car focused. I'm about 12 miles from my office and would love to bike in. However, if I tried to bike on the one road which would get me there, I'm reasonably certain that I'd trigger the suicide clause in my life insurance. It's a two lane road (one each way) with culverts on either side, a 50mph speed limit (so cars are doing about 60) and the direction means the sun is in your eyes for the commute. Just no fucking way I'm biking that.
That’s the main issue I guess; there’s no good alternative for cars in the US. I’m from the Netherlands - where bicycling is very common - and I used to ride my bicycle to school when I was a kid (20km a day). There are bikelanes everywhere and we even have “bicycle highways”, which are basically bikelanes that have right of way on everyone.
Let alone showing up to work sweaty and worn out depending on temperature, how in shape you are, how many hills there are etc. Or soaked because of rain or snow.
I know some people *do* bike or walk long distances to work but it’s just not tenable for a lot of people.
I rather bike but nothing is done for it to be safe. Too bad the infrastructure bill passed does nothing for alternative forms of travel and I’ll be real neither parties would look into it
Yeah, if you dont have a vehicle to drive here it’s almost impossible to travel
I live in Houston. My job is 20 miles away. Takes me almost an hour one way with traffic. If I biked or walked it would take hours upon hours. It’s almost impossible to live here without a vehicle
Our gov also subsidize our prices at the pump and we do not adjust the gas tax to keep up with inflation. Our gas is artificially cheap
US is just confused at the comma
And the "$" being after the number.
It's a pet peeve of mine but a lot of people in the US do it too. I've even seen it written like that on a "help wanted" ad on the back of a semi.
Yep way too many commas flying around in this thread wtf is going on
The comma is disgusting sorry
At the same time, our country fundamentally requires us to drive much more, on average, than Europeans. More Americans, on average, own cars and actively drive compared to Europeans. Our average commute is longer and the average distance to amenities, the store, and other businesses is longer. Also, our economy currently sucks ass rn so increasing gas by even a little bit is still too much for most people to handle without having to make some serious sacrifices in their budget. Also, a large part of that price is taxes for other government programs, which the US doesn't have.
We don't even have sidewalks outside of our neighborhood. There's either walking through a fenced off field or in the road to get to the gas station or food just two blocks away. This is IN the city...
Roughly $0.75 per litre in Greenland. $2.79 per gallon :)
That’s because of high taxes, NOT because of fuel costs.
Yea this is true in finland the cost of E95 is 71% TAX.
And it is 1.90€ / L or (8.09$ / GALLON)
It's both. Depending on where you are, most of the money might be taxes, but the increasing prices within the last 10 months are mostly coming from oil&gas prices shooting up globally.
But dont forget the US Gov, PAYS Fuel companys to keep their prices low so if the US would only collect taxes instead of paying them to the companys the prices would be very siminular
I mean, it makes sense. The US economy is very much dependent on the ability for its citizens to commute
gas in brazil is arround R$7/L
1.48 Euro per liter in Croatia
Over 8$ per gallon (19,5 sek / liter) for me in Sweden...
Yeah but the whole thing hinges on that word *normal*. Sure, that seems like a lot to me but it doesn't seem particularly large to someone in the EU. Gas reaching $3.50 here in the U.S. is absolutely a big deal, because of how people manage their expenses, and what they've grown accustomed to spending on a tank of gas, regardless of how it compares to gas prices elsewhere.
And lack of public transportation, vast areas of land to cover
Also, we drive more than Europeans since most towns and cities are specifically built for cars and not anything else. So, the average cost of gas, say, over a month is realistically going to be a lot closer. Also, they have tons of taxes on their gas prices.
Meanwhile us Indians with Rs. 100 per litre:
It costs me just shy of €100 to fill up my car. I drive a small Alfa Romeo btw not a Hummer
Do keep in mind in the US it’s a pain in the ass to get anywhere if you can’t drive public transportation is horrible unless your in a big city and everything is too far away to walk.
Nobody I meet understands that gasoline in the US is subsidized by the government.
That's right, every time you gas up in the US, it is **socialism**!
You think that's expensive? In Germany in 1943, a chamber full of gas cost 10 people their lives!
