Nothing is undervalued or completely subsidized in the world now days. Human consume commodities and pay the price. Out of these commodities the fuel/oil is the one of much use all over the world and particularly in the developed world. The vehicles, bikes, buses, trains, ships, planes, jets, factories, industries, manufacturing units etc. use and absorb the utility up. It fuels the economies and development of nations. The petroleum is purchased yearly around the globe by the countries with no or insufficient resources. There are countries having the oceans like wells having gigantic gasoline reserves.

The regional and global conflicts of interest, especially the consistent confrontations and insurgency in the Middle East and Africa have a great influence on the hiking of the oil pricing.

On the flipside there are the countries with the most expensive and literally overpriced fuel. The oil prices are sky rocketing in Norway, Turkey, Netherlands and UK than anywhere else. Norway is topping the high-priced lists with the average petrol expenditure (monthly) of £ 198.06. Likewise, Italy, Denmark and Greece too have the high-priced gasoline; a great hitch for the motorists, preparing them to choose hitchhike. Despite having the public backlash and protests over pretty uneconomical and propelling petrol values; the governments are unable and unwilling to control and lower the pricing.
The average international market rate of oil/gasoline is 1.3 USD but due to the several cuts and adds, taxes, and subsidization the oil prices are form cheapest to the expensive most in around the different parts of globe. Generally the gulf nations are dominating the lists because of the largest productions and never ending oil reserves. We will find you help the countries with cheapest black gold.
