Gasoline prices in the USA

Gasoline prices in the USA are significantly lower than in Europe.

To support my bold words, I present a personally taken photo of a US gas station.

I don’t know when you will read this text, so I’m writing, the photo was taken in August 2018.

Цены на бензин в США

To compare gas prices in the US and Europe, you need to do a little research. Introductory:

  • firstly, American «regular» corresponds to 92nd gasoline, and «plus or premium» — something between 95 and 98
  • secondly, gasoline in America is measured in gallons, 1 gallon is equal to 4.54609 liters
  • thirdly, the cross rate of the dollar to the euro in August 2018 was 1 euro to 1.10 dollar

For example, let’s calculate the price of premium gasoline, which is more often used. And so…

  • the photo shows that 1 gallon of plus=premium gasoline costs $3.23
  • if $3.23 is divided by 4.54609, the price of 1 liter of gasoline in the USA is $0.71
  • we convert $0.71 into euros at the cross rate, we get 0.64 euros per liter

Conclusion 1: the average price for gasoline 95-98 in the USA is 0.64 euros, with the average price for the same gasoline in European countries being 1.10 — 1.20 euros per liter.

Of course, these values ​​change «plus or minus», but not significantly, and the trend is clear… It’s hard to argue with the numbers…

Some useful information: you can keep track of gasoline prices around the world online. There are sites where information about fuel prices is posted online, for example,

Conclusion 2: traveling around America by car is certainly profitable, and even more profitable if your traveling party is more than two people. So feel free to rent a car in America and go!
