If you think $4 per gallon is high

Try $64 per gallon (at today's exchange rate).

Petrol station charges €9.99 a litre for gas

Police were called after a petrol station near Stuttgart began charging €9.99 per litre ($40 per gallon) of super gasoline amid dwindling supplies on Easter Monday.

In the town of Filderstadt, south of the Baden-Württemberg capital, the Esso petrol station apparently raised the price to a prohibitive level in a deliberate attempt to dissuade motorists from buying it, police reported. The station was running low on the fuel amid a nationwide shortage. [...]

Customer Yunus G. told daily Bild he put 21 litres in his BMW and was asked to pay €209.98.
