In Chicago I pay around a $1.39/Gal up to a $1.50/Gal for premium, I have paid, as much as $2.40/Gal last summer when prices were very high. And I have also traveled to many Europe and Middle East countries where in the US we should definitely consider our selves lucky for what we pay for gas even at $2.40/Gal. I have a friend overseas who got the same car as mine. A 93 W140 it cost him around $150 dollar each fill-up.

But most cars there are smaller and a lot of cars are diesel, which makes things a bit better. And the travel distances and road congestion and traffic we deal with here are almost a rare occurrence. My friend only works 1.3 miles away from home.
