I was back to France for the last few days of 2010 and the 1st week of 2011. The petrol prices were outrageous (1.52 EUR/l) for the E98 and 1.48EUR/l for the E95-10. Since I did not want to take any chances with the E95-10, I had to use E98... Fortunately I only had to pay 30 Euros as I only did about 200 km this trip
Last summer, I paid 1.34 EUR/l in France and was considering it expensive.
In Egypt, we pay about 2 Egyptian Pounds per litre of 92 Octanes, which is about 0.30 Euros. Here, it's considered very expensive for the locals. No 98 Oct. available here and the 95 Oct, is very rare also. Most of the people use the 89 Octanes Petrol for the Korean and Chinese cars. The Government still maintains a subvention on the 89 OCt. Pertrol (for the masses) and LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas)
(for the taxis) but removed it on other fuels. Diesel is only for trucks and buses including small busses (7 seaters). No subs but no taxes either.
(Note: don't think it's a driving heaven here due to fuel prices. Cars above 1600cc engines are taxed 2 or 3 times their price for customs. As an example, a Jaguar XF V8 is around 150,000.00 Euros here while it's around 65,000 Euros average in France...). The roads are full of potholes and traffic jams are phenomenal). No sense of driving ethics also and dings and dents are a car's daily... Glad my car is still in France waiting for me
