A notable exception is the US which is an economically advanced country but has low gas prices.
The most expensive country is Hong Kong with 2,77 per liter while the cheapest is Venezuela with 0,021 euros per liter.
Differences in prices between countries are due to various taxes and subsidies on gasoline.All countries have access to the same oil prices in international markets, but then decide to impose different taxes.
As a result, the retail price of gasoline is different.
