Took a Trip to the Village: Gas Prices in Russia… (06/02/2011)

We took a pleasant journey this weekend to our village home. Thought you might be interested in what we pay for gasoline and propane here in Russia…

Filled up the tank with petrol (gasoline) this week – 21 rubles a liter…
Filled up the LPG (propane) tank this week – 14 rubles a liter…

3.78541178 liters = 1 gallon…

79.5 rubles per gallon for petrol (gasoline) = $2.84 an American gallon for gasoline
53 rubles per gallon for LPG (propane) = $1.89 per American gallon for propane

Our trip we just took was just a few km short of a 1000km and we drove all but about 10km on propane. No issues on getting fuel at any time and no waiting lines for fuel anywhere…

Gotta love that LPG…

PS: I keep seeing the medias in the West proclaim that Russia is collapsing from Fuel shortage.  I have yet to see a gasoline issue in Russia. Lines at the Moscow stations are normal for the 5 years that I have lived here. Propane is not an issue. Moscow is the only place that seems to have high prices but that is easy to get around, just look at the prices before you buy. There can be as much as 5 or 6 rubles difference in price per liter and the stations are right next to each other… 🙂
