You should phrase your question more concisely; what exactly is it you want to know?

At any rate, 3 months won't be nearly enough to see all of Europe, and to keep costs in hand it would be best not to cover more distance than is useful. If going cheap is your main concern, I'd drop southern and mediterranean Europe altogether, and head to eastern Europe and the Balkans instead. And obviously, none of us can tell you about next year's petrol prices.

Since you seem to be planning to go in winter, bear in mind that many campsites will be closed, while camping off the road will still be illegal. This means you will have to stay in hostels.

Hey there.
I have been planning a similar trip, and the first thing I did, was research the countries I wanted to go to. I went onto Google and typed in the different possible countries, and ruled out some of them simply because things are closed in the Winter.
I also purchased travel books which gives an in depth explanation of each country.

Once I chose the countries, I was able to create an itinerary that fits every thing!
