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

Mexico* $ 2.46

China $ 2.27

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?
