Comparison of Petrol Prices in the World
Have you ever wondered which parts of the world have the cheapest and the most expensive fuel prices? Somewhere in the world, people are buying petrol for the price of mineral water, and somewhere else, people have to cut their needs to afford fuel for their rides.
As of May 30, 2022, here are the top five countries with the cheapest and the top five countries with the most expensive petrol.
Countries with Cheapest Petrol
You may not even know the country with the lowest petrol prices on the planet. It’s Venezuela, where people pay just $0.022 for a litre of petrol. That’s 4.5 Pakistani rupees, people; let that sink in.
The country with the second-lowest petrol price is Libya, where one litre of petrol costs $0.032. That equals 6.45 Pakistani rupees.
Iran comes third on the list of countries with the cheapest fuel. One litre of petrol costs $0.052, i.e., Rs. 7.10 in Iran.
One good thing Syrians have is affordable fuel. One litre of petrol costs $0.286, i.e., Rs. 58 in Syria. That’s a big jump from Rs. 7 per litre of petrol in Iran, but still affordable compared to other parts of the world.
The fifth lowest petrol price in the world right now is $0.316 (equals Rs. 63.73) in Algeria.
Moving on, we have the top five countries with the highest fuel taxes.
