Can anyone tell me if the gasoline in Belize is sold in US gallons or Imperial gallons. Everytime we're there, I try to compare prices with what we pay in Canada which is obviously in Canadian dollars and liters. It can make your head spin and I always get stuck on the size of gallons in Belize. Everyone local I've asked previously wasn't aware that US and Imperial gallons were different sizes.

Wow! I assumed that since Belize used to be British, and is still a member of the Commonwealth, that gas would be in imperial gallons.

1 US gal equal 3.79 liters

Our cost of regular gas today is 99.9 cents Canadian per liter therefore $3.79 Canadian per US gallon. Since the Canadian dollar is slightly higher than the US dollar today, our equivilent cost is about $3.82 US per US gallon. That is a lot cheaper than the cost in Belize. Almost 25%. Of course thats in Alberta. Gas prices vary thoughout the country and are usually more expensive out east or on the west coast.

Pardon me for thinking out loud.

Thanks Lan.

In Britain the average price is double Alberta's, going on the above, at US$7.70 per US gallon.
