We already know what the response will be from our European SimHQ members.

It is not much more than what it was before the pandemic. Everything goes up in price every year.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

We'll likely see another dollar hike by the end of the year. Things are about to get really interesting.

They usually go up by Memorial day and in some places the "summer blend" makes them go up too. I am surprised the news media hasn't tried to pass this off as the reason we are seeing price spikes now. Of course, they are going with the old chestnut "it's the Russians" again. With the COVID restrictions lightening up more and more people will be returning to their long commutes back and forth to work too. No more working from home.

Yeah, they go up every summer. The freeze down south in Feb, along with the pipeline shut down and the hurricanes last summer/early fall didn't help any stock piles or readiness either.

No, we don't. It's currently ~ $1.70ish per litre for unleaded here in Glasgow. For our US friends that's ~$6.45-50 for an US gallon.

Actually, since I passed my driving license, I've never payed less than 1€ per liter for unleaded 95 octane.

In most European countries more than HALF of the retail price you pay for gasoline consists of taxes. That is insane in my book.

Seeing as how national governments are so dependent on gasoline to generate tax revenue, things will be quite interesting once all vehicles go electric. It won't happen any time soon but it WILL happen just like physical currency going away and being replaced 100% by digital currency.

We just compensate.
Remember most of our cars burn a third less here.

It's currently about 62% here. But that tax funds communal things incl. roads as well as being a nudge to keep use down. Similar with taxes on alcohol & tobacco.
& we generally have better public transport systems overall (albeit Covid knocked use right back).
