    That's expensive relative to Canadian prices (Aruba florin converted is about $1.50 CDN/Liter). Average price in Toronto is about $1.03 CDN/liter.

    That's about $1.15 per liter or over $4.00 per gallon. Thank goodness the island is small and the rental cars get good mileage! (shouldn't this be in "Getting Around"?)

    $4 does not seem that bad to be honest. I remember years ago paying more than double that.

    Here is a nice chart which compares gasoline prices worldwide.
    Venezuela being the cheapest (almost nothing!!!), Hong Kong being the most expensive.

    Gasoline prices, 10-August-2015
    (Liter, US Dollar):


    For instance:

    Venezuela 0.02
    USA 0.75
    Canada 0.98
    Aruba 1.13
    Germany 1.59
    UK 1.79
    Netherlands 1.87
    Hong Kong 1.93

    I just paid $2.11 per gallon of regular gas near my home in Princeton, NJ. That is equivalent to .52 per liter.
