According to www.globalpetrolprices.com, the average price of gasoline i.e. petrol across the world is US $ 1.36 per liter. However, there is substantial variation in these prices between countries. Prices are higher in rich countries, while prices are much lower in poorer countries and countries that produce and export oil. An exception is the US which is an economically advanced country, but prices are low. The difference in prices in different countries is due to different taxes and subsidies for gasoline. All countries have access to the same petroleum prices in international markets, but then decide to tax differently. As a result, the retail price varies.
