Reasons for the difference in gasoline prices around the world
Producer/importer of oil. Oil producing countries Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Kuwait have the cheapest prices. The only exception is Norway – which despite being a major oil producer has one of the highest prices. By contrast, countries that import oil and gasoline have higher prices.
tax levels. The UK fuel surcharge is £0.5795 per liter. In addition, a value-added tax of 20% is charged. About 60% of the fuel price paid by UK motorists is tax. This is compared to China, which does not impose a fuel tax. Malaysia even has fuel subsidies.
wages and rent costs. The other important cost of petrol is gas station rent and workers’ wages. Wages and costs in Western Europe are higher than in the developing world – explaining part of the price difference.
