Gas Prices in Hong Kong

While there are few gas stations to be found throughout Hong Kong, the prices are quite reasonable by US standards. I found this station while wandering by myself in the middle of the night down a secluded street near the US consulate (Kennedy Road I believe). With the HK$ exchanged at a pegged rate of approximately US$7.75, the cost of regular unleaded is a bit less than $2 and premium is slightly over $2. This at least partially explains the city's very reasonable taxi fares.
