What are you paying for fuel?

Well, fuel went up again yesterday, no surprise.
Filled up the GS with premium fuel at the pumps.
$1.53 Canadian a litre. Ouch!
So, that's about $6.88 an Imperial gallon or $6.12 a US gallon.

What's everyone else paying in the world?

Btw, I live where the price of fuel is cheapest in Canada.

I stopped at the wrong station in Florida where credit was more than cash and paid over $3.00 per gallon, but I showed them, I only put in two gallons. Normally around $2.69 for regular. With the two gallon fillups, I don't pay a lot of attention, but with the big tank on the truck the price of Diesel does get noted.
Tickster, my first time into Canada, I saw the price for forty something cents and thought gas was cheap. I then found out it was liters. I told myself if gas ever gets to $1.00 a gallon in the states, I will have to stop riding. Needless to say this was a couple of years ago.

Fuel price.

In the UK it's gone up a penny or two in the last week or so, I'm paying about 1.23/litre or 5.59 for an imperial gallon.
I've given up worrying about it, there's nothing I can do about the cost, just use it carefully, hence most of my mileage is done on an economical motorcycle?

$2.69 in Florida?? In Los Angeles it's close to $4 (maybe $3.80) a gallon. So around EUR 0,90 per liter.

Yikes, that's about $2.13 CDN a litre.
Fuel companies have us over a barrel, what are we to do, not buy it?
Hence the single cylinder G310, great fuel economy.

So roughly $1.90 for a quarter gallon, that's steep
