Most local (physical) stores are cheaper than Steam. Even Impulse (Stardock's digital platform) has some few games at cheaper prices than Steam (as they still charge in dollars), like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (19.99€ against 19.99$)

For example, Assasin's Creed, a couple of days ago was on sale on Steam (50% off):
In US: 9.99$
In Europe: 14.99€ = 20$

Other games have a conversion rate 1$ = 1€ (where the true is 1.3$ = 1€)
