    Default World fuel prices

    New Zealand
    Price per gallon of gasoline: $6.73US
    Rank by most expensive gas: 30
    Rank by pain at the pump: 45

    The average daily income is $106. The share of a day's wages needed to buy a gallon of gas is 6.4 percent.

    Kiwis use 0.5 gallon of gas each day, on average, which is twice the ranking average. About 3.2 percent of the average income goes to fueling up, the sixth-highest out of 60 countries.

    Australia

    Price per gallon of gasoline: $6.31US
    Rank by most expensive gas: 36
    Rank by pain at the pump: 54

    Relying on fossil fuels for electricity is getting more expensive in Australia after the government's tax on carbon dioxide emissions was imposed last year. Wind energy is now cheaper than coal or natural gas for producing electricity, according to a report this month by Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

    The carbon tax doesn't apply to driving, which means the nation can continue to enjoy its relatively harmless pain-at-the-pump ranking. Australia is the sixth-biggest consumer of gasoline. With an average daily income of $191, the share of a day's wages needed to buy a gallon of gas is 3.3 percent.

    Not surprised about Norway, but surprised about Turkey though. I would never think that gas is so expensive there. I have been in Turkey twice, but never paid attention to gas prices. And, surely, gas is expensive in Norway, but their salaries are high there as well.

    Turkey is paying the price for years of tax avoidance - so govt get it through direct tax instead (fuel, goods, services, alcohol)
    If you run a legitimate business here (as we do) you can't believe the government fee's - our accounting bill runs to $700 p/month, 60% of which is official fees rather than going to the accountant. Stifling

    Weaker dollar a wowser at the bowser

    Date July 24, 2013
    John Collett: What's going on at the bowser?

    Petrol prices are at an almost five year high, jumping 15c per litre in recent months. But what is the reason for this, and what can we do to ensure we're not paying more than we need to?


    It's not just online shopping and overseas holidays that get more expensive when the dollar drops. For many households, a more immediate effect is felt at the petrol bowser.
    And with some experts predicting the dollar has even further to fall, it may be hard to avoid paying more for petrol over the next few months.
    Since hitting US$1.05 in April, the Aussie dollar had plummeted to about US0.92 when Money went to press. As a result, the Aussie-dollar price of fuel in Singapore - which sets retail prices - recently spiked to a five-year high. This is because fuel is traded in US dollars and these have recently become a whole lot more expensive for Australians to buy.
    Wholesale prices

    It normally takes about 10 days for these increases to be passed on to customers, so experts believe national bowser prices could soon also rise to five-year highs above $1.50 a litre. If the economists who are predicting further falls in the dollar are right, the increase could be even greater.

    To illustrate just how much difference the dollar is making, analysts at CommSec said the pump price would have actually fallen slightly in recent months if the currency had remained at its April level of US$1.03.
    ''So what?'' you might ask if petrol isn't a big expense for you. But as well as being an annoyance for drivers, higher oil prices can have a significant impact on the economy's overall health.
    After servicing a mortgage, filling up the car is one of the biggest regular expenses for many households. Economists have estimated average use of 35 litres a week, or about $53.
