Default Gas prices around the world

Gas prices around the world
Think you pay a lot for gas? Perhaps you'd prefer to live in Venezuela.

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) Gasoline prices in the United States, which have recently hit record highs, are actually much lower than in many countries. Drivers in some European cities, like Amsterdam and Oslo, are paying nearly 3 times more than those in the U.S.

The main factor in price disparities between countries is government policy, according to AirInc, a company that tracks the cost of living in various places around the world. Many European nations tax gasoline heavily, with taxes making up as much as 75 percent of the cost of a gallon of gasoline, said a spokesperson for AirInc.

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 March, 2005.

Not sure how accurate those prices are. My buddy in London just told me its 5.00 British pounds per gal. At about 2 bucks per pound thats nearly double whats quoted above.

Then again they use a real gal versus our smaller gal in the states.

If you notice it says "All prices, updated March 2005" so yeah, they aren't up to date. But it still gives an accurate comparison. I bet that double space in the $2 range between Panama and Russia was supposed to be US.
