    We have a worldwide group here. How much are you paying for gas?

    $2.99 for the cheapest here but we have the highest gas tax in the nation.

    We work in litres here, and 1 US gallon = 3.785 litres. My car runs on diesel, which is around £0.98 a litre, and £1 = $1.79, so...

    3.785 x 0.98 x 1.79 = $6.64 per US gallon

    Petrol is a bit cheaper -

    3.785 x 0.96 x 1.79 = $6.50 per US gallon

    $108.5 per liter...I think that's about $4.10 per US Gallon.

    The worst part is that they get a good portion of the Oil & Gas out of the ground...right here in Alberta.

    you can select your state/city and find the cheapest/most expensive gas in town...

    as if saving $0.02/gallon is going to make you drive all the way across town...

    $2.99 is the average near home but reached $3.06 a few miles away.
