What is your current local gas prices?

Post by Calavera » Mon Mar 23, 2020 6:58 pm

Gas prices have recently went down immensely in the past couple of weeks. I don't know if this is just a US thing or if it is happening worldwide but I'd be interested to know what everyone's local gas prices are. I got gas today for $1.69 (roughly 0.45 per liter) The state average is $1.83 per gallon down from $2.39 just a month ago. It is wild how fast the prices have dropped. Just a month or so ago I thought $2.49 was an ok price! Will gas go below $1 per gallon? Amazingly it already has! There is a station in London Kentucky that actually has gas for 99 cents per gallon. The last time gas was that price anywhere in the US must have been almost 20 years ago. I'm guessing around 2001 or 2002. When I first got my license gas was considered really high at $1.74 per gallon. Now 16 years later it is even cheaper! Who would have thought this would ever happen.

But enough of my stories, what are your local prices? Have they dropped dramatically for any of you as well?

About AU$1.14 for a litre. Not that cheap but it has been up to $1.69 in recent months.

Well PETROL prices have been low down here... So it may not be worldwide, but in Aus at least, our PETROL prices have mainly plummeted.

I am surprised you have done a gallon to litre conversion, but not called it petrol, like it actually is, Cal. :olol:
petroleum-derived flammable liquid AKA petrol (I have no idea why it's ever been called gasoline, care to fill me in?) has been cheap here lately.
before the world shat itself, in my area, regular, normal 91 RON PETROL (which is the standard for cars here) was usually around $1.35-$1.55AUD/l

a few weeks ago it dropped to $1.17AUD/litre. and stayed there... Then overnight in my area it went back to $1.59/l for no fucking reason.
THAT'S RIGHT.. it went up >40 cents a litre overnight for absolutely no fucking reason... Then 4 days later dropped again.

Last time it was $1.17 per litre around here was about 2007-2008.(normal price, not including crazy run out or closing down sales)

For the record, the first time I ever LEGALLY filled up a car was on my 16th Birthday in 2003 (we can get out learners permit at 16 and need a supervising driver, and solo drive at 18 on a probationary license) and normal RON 91 petrol cost 79.8 cents/litre.

I haven't ever payed attention to Gas prices (Liquefied petroleum gas) because an LPG car is more fucking effort than it's worth for the savings, but I guess about 93 cents/l?

Gas (LPG) cars used to make sense, becuase petrol was $1.17 and gas (LPG) was 38 cents... but now it's so close and by the time you factor in the conversion costs, and running costs, and getting the LPG tank checked and certified every 30 fucking seconds. It just doesn't make sense.

Diesel also used to be cheaper than petrol (which made sense, if you look into it and know the refining process) but now it's more expensive because all trade vehicles use it.. so CA-CHING$$$$$$

I've not owned a car in more than a year now, but now with people needing expendable people, and cars/petrol basically being given away, I might be making a move and getting a car again.

99c per litre so about $3.74 per gallon? That would be considered pretty expensive here in the Midwest but on the west coast that is around what it currently is. California average is $3.15 but has many stations over $4. So depending on where you are in the US gas can be anywhere from $0.99 to $4.99!

Whoops! I forgot to convert the currency from AUD to USD! So it ends up being around $2.18 per gallon USD not $3.74. So not too far off what it is around here.

Damnit, I was just in London, but I filled up in Corbin thinking it would be cheapest.

There's also an annual ~$100 AU membership cost, too. But I took out their free credit card and get that back in rewards points.

That's true, I think Costco is cheaper by a fair bit here too. The membership for us is about $60AU per year. Me and my gf have one, I just don't know how much it costs. :olol:
