Most gas stations are open from 7am to 8pm. Gas prices average US$4 per gallon.
There are no toll highways in Luxembourg.
Most city parking requires paying at a meter as parking is scarce in Luxembourg city. 'Blue zone' parking requires you to obtain a parking disc from an auto club, tourist office or police station. Display this disc on the dash.
