Greece’s neighbors pay less for fuel. Specifically, in Albania it is sold at 1.33 euros on average, in Turkey it is 1.25 euros, in Cyprus 1.24 euros and in Bulgaria it is only 1.04 euros per liter.

The world average price of gasoline is 1.13 U.S. dollars per liter. As the website points out, the general trend is that gasoline is more expensive in richer countries where the price is also set on the basis of taxation.

The exception is the United States where gasoline is sold at 0.61 euros per liter.
