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.
