   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).

US: The World's Newest Major Exporter of Crude Oil

This year the U.S. has averaged more than 900,000 barrels per day (BPD) of crude oil exports while continuing to import an average of 8.1 million BPD. From 1975 until late 2015, a crude oil export ban restricted crude oil exports from the U.S. to all countries besides Canada. In the years leading up to the U.S. shale oil boom, the U.S. was exporting less than 30,000 BPD to Canada. Canada remains the predominant destination for U.S. crude oil exports, but because of the repeal of the crude oil export ban, the U.S. exported crude oil to nearly 30 countries last year. By 2016, the total had grown to 591,000 BPD of U.S. crude oil exports.
