What about fuel?


Hey


Summer is comming so maybe some of will spend their holidays in Dubai. Don't hesitate to rent a car there. While browsing internet as usually I came across receipt containing gasoline price from gas station in there:




As you can see 27l (like 7,3 gallons) of gasoline costed 50AED which is around 13,5USD. From what I did read it happens that it still isn't cheapest gasoline price in the neibourhood as Dubai doesn't have its own oil reserves. To give you wieder point of view the same amount of gasoline in the states would cost you around 26,3USD.


When looking at prices like these I regret living in middle Europe where for 27l of fuel I would have to pay equivalent of 55USD; in my country where currencys purchase power is way lower.

  2. Hehe, yeah, people in states are lucky bastards compared to us in Europe. But you two I belive have Euro as currency, so you are not that much screwed if I count it right.

    For example in mine country 1l of gasoline cost 1/200 of minimal wage.

  3. Belgium is pretty fucking expensive indeed. Yesterday that guy from Total said that 'he wouldn't be surprised if the fuel prizes would become as high as €2/litre in the next few months. I raged hard.

  11. Fuel costs are definitely going to be a little volatile this year due to the crisis in Libya. Hopefully things will get better over time!

    Great post by the way, keep 'em coming :)

  12. Damnit, I had just gotten in to the mindset to ignore things oil-related and NOW LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE GONE AND POSTED.

  13. Is it because even though they have oil wells there, they don't have refineries?

  14. Well, gas is high in Belgium because they don't want people driving cars. They'd rather that they bike and use public transport and not have to deal with gas at all. In any case, $1.80 per gallon of gas isn't bad. Last time I saw prices like that in the states were in SC around 2008

  17. Skeng's making light of it! We've been told £1.50 a LITRE (roughly $8 a gallon) will be a good deal in a few months. Damn country.
