I've heard talk of hydrogen, ethanol and bio-diesel but our leaders are
mostly silent about conservation.  The less gas I burn, the less gas costs.
It's the law.

Depends on where you live.

http://www.gaspricewatch.com/new/default.asp  for U.S. prices.

California seems to be the highest (stateside) in the U.S. due to the heavy
regulations.  The higher prices then spread from the regulations adopted
from that state into others (in time).  Diesel is frowned upon (emissions)
and is often more than lowest-priced petrol grade.

Of course, you need to factor in what those in the U.S. pay separately from
other countries in the form of insurance for social services that is
included in their country's gax tax to make the comparison fair.  If you
were to remove private insurance and place all taxes into gas as other
countries do, then U.S. gas would be around $0 per gallon.

Otherwise, Venezuela has nice prices of around $ 0.12 per gallon.
