Petrol Prices: Australia v The World


In 2013 Petrol prices in Australia are still the 4th cheapest, when compared against the major countries of the world, and have been in this position consistently since at least 2004.

This is mainly due to the low taxes imposed on petrol in Australia, as the base petrol price appears to be very similar for most of the countries listed.

The red section is the Tax Component, and the Blue section the base fuel cost

Current figures show this graph of prices, based in A$ against the other countries, for the first quarter of 2013.
