Gas prices around the world


Gasoline prices in the United States, which have recently hit record highs, are actually much lower than in many countries, BUT much higher than many others.

Many European nations tax gasoline heavily, with taxes making up as much as 75 percent of the cost of a gallon of gasoline.

In a few Latin America and Middle-East nations, such as Venezuela and Saudi Arabia, oil is produced by a government-owned company and local gasoline prices are kept low as a benefit to the nation's citizens, he said. All prices updated April, 2011.
