   World oil prices continue to fall, and the price of gasoline too, but gasoline prices are differs across countries by a huge amounts. Some countries subsidize gasoline, others, on opposite, have significant tax burden. Most expensive gasoline (in nominal USD terms) is in the Italy, Netherlands, Norway and Hong Kong - about 1.86 USD per liter as of 12 Jan 2015. And the cheapest one is in the Venezuela, whose citizens drive their cars almost for free (only 2 cents per liter). But what is "expensive" and "cheap"? Incomes of people by country differs too. And if to bring gasoline prices to a common denominator taking income levels into account, the picture changes. Thus, in United States monthly GDP per capita equals about 7120 liters of gasoline and in Iran, for example, where nominal USD price is "cheap" (0.26$/l.) for 1 monthly GDP per capita you could buy 4.4 times less gasoline - only 1621 liter. Europe citizens, on average, can buy about 2-3 times less gasoline for their incomes than residents of US. And the poorest (in terms of gasoline purchasing power) - some African countries (their citizens gasoline purchasing power more than 300 times less than US, as shown on the map and ranking gadget).

Cost of producing a barrel of crude oil by country

Slump of oil prices does not slow oil production immediately as it does with investment according to historical evidence. On the contrary, it affects future production through decreased investment in exploration and development of new fields. However, in the current conditions when oil price hovered above break-even price (price at which it becomes worthwhile to extract) for several years the response of production to price decrease may come more quickly. Especially, it concerns countries which experience high operating costs of oil production, namely United Kingdom, Brazil, Canada, Australia. In these countries oil price slump will affect...
