World Petrol Prices

World Petrol Prices

There are a number of Online resources quoting world petrol prices by country across a range of dates, mostly from before the ‘Arab Spring’ of 2011 which obviously caused large scale fluctuations in the petrol price in most countries. In order to get an approximate ranking for each country I therefore averaged the prices I was able to obtain. For some countries I used 5 different petrol prices, for others I was only able to locate one price. Therefore the table below should be used strictly for indicative purposes of where fuel is cheap and where its expensive. I’d be amazed if any of the prices are completely accurate at any point in time. What all the websites agreed on though was that Venezuela with its huge reserves of oil and massively subsidised fuel is the cheapest country to fill up in, and Eritrea, a country which imports all its petrol and has suffered from a lack of foreigh currency reserves, suffers the highest of world petrol prices.

In April 2012 the UK Based insurance company Stavely Head produced some interesting stats on world petrol prices. They can be found on the link below-

This website seems to keep its prices updated pretty constantly. Unfortunately it only covers Europe -

*In Jan 12 the Nigerian Goverment removed a fuel subsidy which effectively doubled the price of petrol to around $3.50 per gallon , $0.93 per litre. This resulted in violent demonstrations so it remains to be seen whether this price will remain.

    I’ve just returned from a 5000+km roadtrip through France and Spain and for the first time diesel (and petrol) is cheaper in France.
