Gas prices at the pump are going up at midnight tonight. Premium fuel will go up by 25 cents, regular by 18 cents, diesel by 14 cents and kerosene by 16 cents. It's the second increase in three weeks and it will take the price of a gallon of premium fuel to $10.71, regular to $10.60, and diesel to $7.64 in the city. As we understand it, government is continuing its practice of simply passing on the increases in acquisition prices which continue to go up because of the high price per barrel of oil.

Add on more to the price by the time it gets out to the island.

OMG... guess we have no right to complain in the states. It's only $2.89 for regular unleaded in Houston. I don't get why it's so much higher there.

Nope, I'm on gas, electric wouldn't keep up with the miles I put on.

It's higher here due to the fact that we don't have the buying power that larger countries do. Not sure of how our tax structure comes into play compared to other countries.

In Canada the price of gas in Ontario is around $1CDN (.90US) per litre ($3.40US per gallon). In England gas recently hit $7US per gallon.

Holland is the most expensive in Europe which is close to $8 a gallon so all you Americans be grateful your price is still very very low compared to the rest of the world.

To fill up a compact car in Holland is more than $75 U.S I have filled up a smilar car in the U.S for $22.00

I remember that from my last visit, even filling a motorcycle was breaking the bank.
