Ten cheapest places to buy fuel in the world

WE might often gripe at how expensive petrol is around here, but what does the picture look like on the global scale?

GlobalPetrolPrices.com releases a regular report of local petrol prices in countries around the world.

While all countries have access to similar petrol prices on the world market, different local laws, subsidies and taxes make for very different prices at the pump.

Australia's current reported average petrol price is $1.12 per litre.

Every day for the next three weeks you could win one of over 1500 prizes including $1000 fuel and grocery vouchers.
