Fuel Prices/you`re going to love this.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia $0.91
Kuwait, $0.78
Caracas, Venezuela Are you ready? You sure? OK Here it is. $0.12
I know Venezuela owns Citco here in the USA. They must be laughing their A** off.

The U.S. is the only country that is on the gallons system. Everyone else measures in Litres. And that is an accurate chart for fuel prices in other countries. They are also third world countries you would never in a million years want to live in or want your family to live in. There is more to it that what you are implying in your post. Be glad you live in America and can have a vehicle.

that is true exit wound, they might be third world countrys but there needs to be some sort of universal fuel price because reguardless of what anyone says price gouging in this country is crap and needs to be stopped, and no you couldnt pay me enough to live there but the fuel prices are nice

Well unfortunently for us we are not oil executives. The oil companies (Shell,BP,Exxon) do not set oil or fuel prices. They just reap the benefits of our undying need for the product they offer. The Fed is the one that set the price for oil by the barrel. Right now we are in a maxi recession and the U.S. Dollar is really not worth that much. That and the rising demand (and supply barely able to keep up) is why diesel is so expensive right now. There is nothing we can do about it right now as individuals but hopefully one day our economy picks up a bit and our dollar grows in value and the price of fuel will level off or hopefully drop.

When you put it in perspective of all of the countries to live in that are good safe countries, the U.S. still has the cheapest price for fuel. So in a way we are lucky.

exactly if you figure in the standard of living they might only make $20-$50 a week. It's the same in Mexico everything is cheaper there but your wages reflect that at the end of the day your still struggling.
