Buying GasPrice Comparison Web Sites

There are number of web sites that compare the price of gasoline in France. Even the French government has gotten into the game. In January of 2007 it launched - Site du Ministère des Finances, prix des carburants, SP95, Gazole... - a site listing the prices of SP 95 (unleaded) and Gazole (diesel) at thousands of filling stations throughout France. This site states it is updated each time a participating filling station changes its prices. It is the responsibly of the filling station to commutate any changes.

There are other price comparison web sites. There is, which along with listing filling stations in cities and towns also lists filling stations on the Autoroute (toll roads).

One other site I looked at is - it has listings of over 13,000 filling stations including on the Autoroute.

All sites are free and in French. You do not need to register to compare prices. Remember that all prices are in euros and quantity is in liters.

Looking for the price of gas or diesel in a particular French department? Try the drop down menu below. Select a department and then click ‘Search.’ A new page will open and it will display a list of gas stations and their prices for the department you selected.
