Today, the Drudge Report is linking to a story from California that reports a gas station in Gorda is charging $5.40 for a gallon of full-service gasoline.
Most of you have heard about the weak dollar and the global rise in fuel prices. Perhaps you are interested to know the result of that combination and how the prices in Israel compare to where you buy gasoline or diesel. The regulated price for diesel in Israel is $9.74 per gallon. If you shop around you can find it discounted down to $7.54.
The regulated price for self-serve unleaded is $6.95 per gallon, which can be found discounted down to $6.79.
I'm experienced enough to say, "I remember when,...diesel could be purchased in Israel for less than $2.00 per gallon." I'm afraid those days are long gone, never to be seen again.
