A combo of the highest-ever tab for a barrel of sweet light crude and the plummeting króna has led to a stupendous hike in gas prices here in the last week or so. Just recently, a liter of gas fetched just over 100 krónur. Today it cost me 122.6 krónur for a liter of the sweet-smelling spirits, or $6.05 for a gallon. A fill-up can easily top $70 at that rate. And I've become European enough in my gas-buying thinking by this point that my Boston commuting buddy complaining about a $35 tank seems completely unbelievable.
