Driving a car is often the most convenient way to go where you need to go, whether you’re in Bondi, Bamako, or Bangkok. So, while a select few countries monopolize the fuel extraction industry, the price of gasoline and diesel varies from country to country, depending on affordability, availability, and local taxes.

And these fuel prices have yo-yo’d dramatically since the pandemic hit, as Budget Direct reported in our guide to fuel prices all around Australia.

Now we’ve taken the study global. The cost of gas and diesel worldwide has been indexed for an up-to-date picture of prices and affordability in every country where data is available.

Here, we’ll focus on the price of fuel across the United States. The prices note the cost to fill a 23-gallon tank.

Methodology & Sources

Here's where American's pay the most for gasoline

Neomam Studios, on behalf of Budget Direct collected this data about gasoline and diesel prices in February 2021.

Then the affordability of gasoline and diesel was calculated as a percentage of the costs of 80L of fuel to the average monthly salary. Income per capita data was taken from the World Bank.

The cost to fill one of the most popular cars in every region (Ford F-150 for the United States; Ford Fiesta for the United Kingdom and Volkswagen Golf for Europe) was also calculated for your interest.
