Gasoline Prices, Cheap as Ever

I can't bear to hear people make statements that are demonstrably false.

"Gas prices are so high!"

No, they're low compared to the rest of the world and adjusted for inflation they're about the same as they've ever been in this country, so stop saying it. You're lying.

Average is EUR 1.39 per liter.

1.39 x $1.30 (conversion to USD) x 3.78 (liters in a gallon) = $6.83 / gallon (premium grade)

The current average in the US is $3.85 / gallon of premium, so about half of what Germany pays ($7.76).
