    In New Jersey (USA), it varies between $3.77 to a bit over $4.00 per gallon.
    If you look around and are willing to leave town, you may find it for a bit less...

    Sorry... to lazy to convert that into pounds per liter (litre).

    Your gallon is about 1/5 greater.

    Pints isn't going to work. Both systems define a pint as an eighth of a gallon.

    Actually, New Jersey usually has lower gasoline prices than other nearby States.

    While we don't have any oil wells, we have lots of refineries. Transportation costs are lower than most.

    Our State gasoline tax is lower than most other nearby states, and there is no municipal gas tax... New York City cab drivers routinely cross the Hudson River (into NJ) to refuel.

    UPDATE: Lowest price (locally) was $3.73 yesterday. I could do better by driving about 10 miles, but I'd probably use up the savings while making the trip..
