£1.35 per litre in the UK where I live. That's about $2.50 per litre or $9.50 per US gallon.

Cigarettes are around $9.50 a pack of 20.

Most stations in my city are at $4.999/gallon. Saw one sign where regular was $5.099 and premium was $6.599, and if the price ever comes back down it will be stuck there for months.
Saw an old sign from the 1970's where the 3 grades of gas were 10 cents apart at $0.799, $0.899, and $0.999. I guess we could expect that only a dollar apart at $7.999, $8.999, and $9.999 soon enough. Lately it's been 10 cents to 40 cents apart between the grades. I haven't seen this kind of gas inflation since the 1973 oil embargo.

I'd get the middle one with the middle suspension, or get the 4th scooter that needs a license and has a padded seat and bigger battery. But I've got no place to store or recharge them like a handy garage. They're 70 pounds or more so I can't carry them up & down stairs. If the battery is gonna die out in 10 miles, what's the point anyway? I had a gas mini-bike at one time that would go 25 mph, but they weren't street legal.

About $7.00 to $7.60 (SE Qld, Australia)

Note 1: According to the news, it will possibly go to ~$8.30+ soon.
Note 2: The above amounts are in AUD, and is a rough conversion from litres to US gallons (so ~AUD/gallon)

I am suggested to use premium 92 OCT, so I pay more. I justify it by saying I could be waiting at the covid-infested bus stop in 110 degrees. No Thanx. Just imagine doing $250 worth of grocery shopping using the bus.

I am paying over $5/gallon for premium.

The media and everyone else always quotes per gallon costs for "regular gasoline." But over than fueling lawn mowers and other single cylinder equipment, does anyone use 'regular' gasoline in their car anyomore?

I think SUV's and bigger vehicles use premium without ethanol, but I have no first hand knowledge.
I started getting gas at BJ's and my car started stalling out at red lights, so I went back to my usual gas station and the stalling stopped. Cheaper gas, off the rails performance.

The choice of "Premium" in Australia is 95- or 98-octane, and I always try to get the 98. So, ~7.60 AUD/gallon, atm (a figure mentioned in my previous post).
