The cost of Gasoline here in the Philippines is still very expensive! I saw a news report that the average cost for a gallon of gas in the USA is now down to $2.09 per gallon.

Let’s see what the equivalent cost is here in the Philippines.

Here are the formula’s we will use:

1 Gallon = 3.785 Liters
$1 = P49

So, one gallon of gasoline costs $2.09 in the United States.

Gas here in the Philippines is averaging P38 per liter.

So, gas in the Philippines costs $2.94 per gallon! Wow, it is way more expensive than in the USA. As a matter of fact, the price here is about 30% higher than customers pay in the United States.

Hi Peter – Wow, I am glad that I don't have to pay $6/gallon! Of course, in Europe (although I don't think Britain) everything is so socialized and such that the tax burden is very high. I would bet that probably 75% of the price of gas there is taxes that go to the government! European countries on the mainland of Europe are probably even higher than $6, I bet!

There is one solution – do like I did – pack up everything and head for the Philippines!

I was hoping the price of gasoline in the Philippines was cheaper than in the U.S.A. the funny thing is a Gallon of fuel in the United Kingdom is about $6 per gallon, wowowee how about that ? it costs me $85.00 to fill up my car, and I do that twice a week, sometimes on busier weeks, three times for the week, I guess coming to the Philippines will be cheaper for me, event at just under $3.00 per gallon, thats half of what I spend now, and in the U.S.A. at Christmas, because we are going to Las… Read more »

Hi Ken – Yeah, it doesn't surprise me about the prices in Alaska. It seems funny, since a lot of oil comes from there anyway, right?

Hi Nestor – I wonder how high gasoline will go in our lifetimes? I remember the days when gas was about 30 cents per gallon, and I'm only 45 years old! My only problem about using a bike here is that there are really no bike lanes, and the drivers are a little crazy! I'd probably get killed on the first day! 😉

Hi Bob,

In Chicago, the price of gasoline is now US$3.25/ L. Do you think it would be better to use a bike around Davao City?

Kind regards
Nestor

Hi Bob!
I live in the uk and visit Davao because my wife to be lives there, but in the uk where i live petrol has reached £5 per gallon almost, the greedy uk government loves to tax everything we have, so i would love the philipine and USA petrol prices to be the same in the uk!

Hi Jeffrey – Yeah, it seems that in Europe they really tax gasoline (or should I say petrol?) a lot! Even years ago, gas was already more expensive than it is in the US and the Philippines today. I feel for you!
