I would say all over North Africa and the Middle East. There's also unrest and protests in places like Bahrain, Oman, and Iraq among other countries that are major oil producers. Libya is in far more chaos than the other counties, but I wouldn't be surprised if the prices are being affected in part because of what's taking place in the other countries as well.

Only up to $3.599, but it is shades of '05 in that it is going up daily. If this were to ever spread to Saudi Arabia, we're screwed.

So even if nothing happens on the 11th, we've got 4 days of rampant speculation to drive up the prices...hurray...

If my quick math is correct, it's about $5.92 a gallon at the station around the corner from my apartment here in Copenhagen.

I'm glad I don't drive a car, here or in the States. (Ask me again when I wait 45 minutes for a bus in Tampa, though.)

Here in beautiful Sydney gas (rather, "petrol") has hit the $1.50 per liter mark and with the AUD being at parity with the USD, that's about $6/gallon in the States.

Roughly £1.34 a litre. Which may be about $8.24/gallon if i've just converted that right.

I saw regular for $4.51 at an (unsurprisingly empty) independent station in Burbank this morning.

$3.89 in Cambridge, MA.

I love these high gas prices. Three separate carpools have formed at work in the past couple of months.

$3.99 for reg at the "Driver" gas station - the one that raises prices first and the others follow.

Oh, I'm sure it's not collusion.

Just in time for Easter.

Variously across the Valley I've seen $3.63 to $3.96 for regular. Lesson: Use up as much gas as possible driving around looking for gas.

It will be by summer vacation time. If it'll make you feel better, just pretend that it already is $5, but you're just finding the rockin' spring sale deals!

Pricing in the run up to Easter. We've got a 5 day weekend coming up because Easter coincides with ANZAC day this year.

I was lucky enough to catch a servo on Tuesday that was selling at $1.36AUD/L Before I got to them I passed a couple that were selling for $1.52 and there were reports of some servos selling for $1.60

The prices watchdog said they checked it out and it wasn't price gouging before the holidays, but rather just part of the normal weekly discount cycle.

I'm sure that the price watch group is on the ball and not a toothless tiger that is a complete waste of taxpayer's money, but I don't remember seeing these prices occur on previous weeks :p
