    Something that would be interesting to see is which one of these countries have government regulated petrol prices. I'm sure those figures will be greatly influenced by such practices?

    It would interesting to see the list valued in burger money so we could determine the real effects on the pockets around the world. Purchasing Power Parity. Check it out here

    For example the uk mac rate is (I think) round about a 6,5:1 ratio which would be in the region of R7.70 a litre, say 3/4 of our rate. So it is relatively cheaper over on that side - far different and more beneficial than the R18.02/lt comparison per the exchange rate list.

    Quite right, fuel in Saudi Arabia might look to us as being at 94c/lt but when it is compared to the average per-capita income it's only about the equivalent of 24c/lt. Venuzuela might look good at 29c but is probably closer to R23.92. These figures are really just an educated thumb-suck, perhaps someone can give us the actual average per-capita income and how much of this is disposed on transport costs?
