"Norwegians are now paying more than NOK 13 a litre (nearly USD 11 a gallon) for gasoline in many markets, and that's likely to rise."
"Norway's gasoline prices became the highest in Europe this week, somewhat ironic since Norway is an oil-producing nation. But government policies have always aimed to discourage use of private cars in Norway by heavily taxing the cars themselves and the gasoline they need to operate."

$4.01 for the cheap stuff in Eastern NC. Although I just glanced at a station on my way home, and the station I looked at is usually several cents more than most. So it's probably something like $3.96 a gallon near my house. I don't look at gas prices unless I have to.

Wow... the last time I lived in NC, gas was still under a $1.

LOL Spiderdust. I wish it were under $1 a gallon here! We're moving to San Diego in 3 weeks and man, I don't even want to think about how much gas is going to cost out there!

$4.539 for 87 octane at what we call "ANSI Standard Arco," which typically has the lowest price. There's one other station that's occasionally a cent lower.

I saw a Chevron charging $4.699/$4.999/$5.099, which caught my eye because of the huge jump from the bottom grade to the mid-grade. They weren't in the middle of changing their prices, either.

The Arco up the street, which is more expensive than a lot of Arcos, is $4.569. There's a 76 station a couple doors up from them, which for months now has had their prices pegged at 2 cents higher than that Arco, and today we noticed they're now 3 cents higher. (The 76 station on the next boulevard over, so like 8 blocks away, is typically 15-20 cents a gallon higher, and their cross-the-street competition is even pricier.)
