    The wholesale price is within a couple cents of the US price. The difference is due to the exchange rate used and the fact that the tax per gallon or litre usually far exceeds the price of the fuel.

    When I was in the Netherlands to pick up my pup last month, I paid $1.49 Euro's per liter. At $1.45 Euro's per US $, that makes for a cool $8.06 per gallon...... And they still drive like there's no tomorrow..... FWIW, Dutch.

    Last December it was over $5 U.S. per gallon when we were in Germany & Austria. I assume it's higher now. Part of that disparity can be attributed to the exchange rate of the $ vs the Euro, but the Europeans pay way more than we do. Phil E

    Many of these countrys have a lot of tax added to the gas. And dont pay any other taxes. Kind of like a value added tax from what ive been told. Am I right?

    Grunt,

    They all have a form of income tax PLUS a value added tax (VAT) on everything they buy. As bad as it seems we are blessed with less tax than most foreign countries!

    God Bless America!

    Merry Christmas

    Earl, just gave me a trip down memory lane. I do remember the Imperial gallon. I worked pumping gas in High School, and remember the Canadian tourists telling me about their gallon as it compared to ours at the time. Thing is, I can't remember if it was larger or smaller. I think it was smaller, can someone tell me the old size of the Imperial gallon. Thank You for your help. Break-em all. Jeff

    The Imperial gallon is larger than the US gallon. Used to know exactly how much, but now CRS.
