42 Philippine pesos per liter. Guessing from your post that you think you are in the center of the universe that is equivalent to US$ 3.88 per gallon.

Unlike in the US that includes delivery directly to the boat at anchor by smiling happy boatmen.

Yep, it must be you.
Sarcasm? More clarification as America is not the only place in the world and there are probably millions of islands and only a small % of them are in or near America.

Re: Fuel Cost...Islands

Been to a few islands recently and the fuel priced varied quite a bit.
Sorry I can't tell you how much more than the US 'cause I have no idea which US you are referring to....

Hilarious, if intended as more sarcasm. Sad if not.

Re: Fuel Cost...Islands

True, we do need to know which islands.. 2-3 us dollars per liter is the upper limit, globally, speaking.
