    What's the price of gasoline around your neck of the woods?

    Here in Seoul, north of the Han river, for the regular stuff, it's about 1850 KRW/Liter, which translates to 1.80 USD/Liter or $6.85/US Gallon.

    My car requires premium, which is about 2350 KRW/L so it works out to about $2.30/L or $8.74/Gallon. That's right, $2/gallon difference between premium and regular!

    It's 10-50 cents/gallon in the cheaper parts of Seoul and once you get south of the city.

    On post (US military bases), it's closer to US prices at about $3.50/Gallon for regular.

    Edit: Added the question.

    I think it's around $1.50 a litre, but I don't don't buy gas very often so rarely look at prices.

    Average price for 95 octane here in Norway last year was 14,70 NOK, meaning it's 2.47 USD per liter or 9.35 USD per gallon.

    This.

    I was shocked at how cheap fuel is in the US compared to here. It's no wonder people over there drive monster trucks as their daily driver.

    Though I live near the Belgium border where if I cross it, I can buy it a bit cheaper.
