Although gas prices are slow (and a little) declining, drivers in the US are still shocked by sticker prices at the pump, with this morning’s national average at $4.68 per gallon, per gallon. AAA† The West Coast has seen particularly high prices, with California and Oregon reaching $6.09 and $5.40 per gallon, respectively.

But how do fuel prices in other countries compare?

If you think US prices are high, The Washington Post‘s foreign correspondents are about to really shock you. In addition, they provide a picture of what some governments are doing to intervene.

France and Berlin have some of the highest prices per gallon in the sample, at $8.11 and $7.46 per gallon, respectively. In France, drivers are eligible for a discount of less than 10% of the total cost; in Germany, the government has lowered fuel taxes and increased funding for public transport.

Gas prices in South Korea are close to those in France and Germany, at $6.33 per gallon. Despite the government’s cut in fuel taxes, prices continue to rise.

In the United Arab Emirates and South Africa, where there has been no government intervention amid rising fuel prices, gas is $4.15 and $5.61 per gallon, respectively. In the United Arab Emirates, citizens who can afford it are increasingly turning to electric cars and rentals.

In Bogotá, Colombia, gas currently costs just $2.17 a gallon and is subsidized by the government. But that fund is now short of about $3 billion, and the government has said it will have to raise gas prices a few cents a month.

The US federal gas tax is set at 18.4 cents per gallon since 1993† Last month, President Biden called on Congress to suspend the federal gas tax for three months (through September) and urged states to provide immediate relief as well.
