oil wellsWhile gasoline prices continue to inch upward, the U.S. still enjoys some of the cheapest fuel in the world. FastCompany.com put together a list of world gas prices that could make you feel better about $3 per gallon gas.

Country and Price per US gallon:

Norway $ 8.67

Netherlands $ 8.52

Belgium $ 8.36

Germany $ 8.06

United Kingdom $ 7.91

Italy $ 7.68

France $ 7.46





Spain $ 7.34

Poland $ 6.55

Japan $ 5.19

Brazil** $ 4.14

United States $ 3.10

Russia $ 3.03

Kazakhstan $ 2.73

Mexico* $ 2.46

China $ 2.27

Nigeria $ 2.23

Saudi Arabia $ 0.45

Iran $ 0.42

Venezuela* $ 0.11

* All prices from November 2007, except Mexico and Venezuela in August 2007

** Brazil is 25% ethanol, so price adjusted downward to be comparable

What I would like to see next is a comparison of public transportation, renewable energy policy, and vehicle efficiency pasted alongside this chart. Think there would be any obvious correlations?

    For all you folks who think drilling more off the coast of the US to get around our peak limit now is a bad idea… look at the price that Iran and the Saudis pay per gallon you KNUCKLE HEADS!!!! Duh! Do you think it has anything to do with less EPA restrictions and the fact that it isn’t coming from half way around the world to get to the pumps? Stupid democrats!
