Gas/benzin/petrol Prices in Your Area

Taxes are probably a lot lower in Luxembourg. In Germany, you pay a fixed tax of 65.5 cents per litre and another 19% VAT for petrol/benzin (so 60-70% taxes). [for Diesel it's 47 cents per litre + 19%]
Last week I tanked in the evening ca. 20:00 in Koeln (Huerth to be exact) . 1,174 Euro Diesel / l (not too bad - better than in Belgium - Antwerp 1,43 /l ).
I asked the clerk about price diversity - he confirmd, apparently it is not the best option to tank on Shell in germany in the evening ( Nachmittag Tarif); he said best option is to tank 7:00-11:00.

From my experience - in germany it is best to tank away from Autobahn, best on Autohof or city next to Autobahn Ausfahrt.

Well, unless you're in a real hurry (or have someone else pay for your petrol), you are definitely better off away from the Autobahn. An Autohof will probably still charge you more than a regular station.

I'm not sure about the difference between Germany and Belgium.

As far as Germany is concerned, you actually get the best prices (on average) in the evening.

I assume you are talking about municipal Aral Tankstellen (I did hear they have reasonable prices compared to Total or Shell )

Now I know why people in Kuwait buy sport cars, Jeeps, Land Rovers and american heavy cruisers - 0,35 cent /l - thats less than european average on CNG...

No autobahns to avoid up here. I'd say the average for diesel is 1.34, but I go to a place where I get it for 1.289.

My colleague works in transportation company - employes can tank on company tank station (they import diesel from Lithuania) - Damn, he pays 0,91 Euro / litre (cheaper than in Luxembourg).
Also there are industrial tankstations (one needs to have IDS, UTA, AS24 card) - the prices are lower than on regular tankstations.
When I briefly lived and worked in Denmark - my boss gave me his UNO-X / Truck XY card - in a country where everything was expensive, the price of 1 l diesel on such stations was relatively low (lower than in germany)

1.66 € for 1l Super95 at the Autobahn ... can't wait for the carbon tax to kick in!

We're up a couple of cents because of the carbon tax. Best deal for diesel I can get is €1.31.9.

Does anyone know why the abbreviation for the Polish złoty* is PLN? Specifically the N part, obviously.

PLN follows ISO currency codes USD, GBP, CHF
PLN = Poland, Nowy Złoty
N = Nowy (New) - there was a monetary reform in Poland in 1995 - old Złoty was replaced by new Złoty
