Who has the most expensive petrol in the world?

Okay, so we all moan about the fuel prices in the UK but did you know we are actually quite low on the top ten countries price per litre for unleaded….

Petrol prices in Turkey are a good 20 pence more per litre than in the UK and not only do they have a huge price to pay for their fuel, the average level of disposable income is at the other end of the scale at just £572 per month! Thats alot of disposable income being zapped by fuel if you use your car alot.
