Gasoline prices, Octane-95, 09-May-2022 : The average price of gasoline around the world is 1.35 U.S. Dollar per litre. However, there is substantial difference in these prices among countries.
As a general rule, richer countries have higher prices while poorer countries and the countries that produce and export oil have significantly lower prices. One notable exception is the U.S. which is an economically advanced country but has low gas prices. The differences in prices across countries are due to the various taxes and subsidies for gasoline.
All countries have access to the same petroleum prices of international markets but then decide to impose different taxes.
As a result, the retail price of gasoline is different. Above are the top 5 highest and lowest gas prices per country, with the US thrown in as a benchmark.

Each year, research group Kantar BrandZ ranks companies based on their “brand value,” which is measured by:
- A brand’s total financial value, which is the financial contribution that brand brings to its parent company ($ value).
- Multiplied by its proportional value, measured by the brands proportional impact on its parent company’s sales (% value).
The financial results are then combined with quantitative survey data, sourced from over 170,000 global consumers. The end result is a holistic look at a company’s brand equity, reputation, and ability to generate value.
The Top 10 comprise two from Consumer Goods & Retail (Amazon, Alibaba), one from Technology (Apple), three from Media & Entertainment (Google, Tencent, Facebook), one from Business Solutions & Tech (Microsoft), two from Financial Services (Visa, Mastercard), and one from Food & Beverage (McDonald's).

Mammal species are mammals excluding whales and porpoises. Threatened species are the number of species classified by the IUCN as endangered, vulnerable, rare, indeterminate, out of danger, or insufficiently known.
As threats to biodiversity mount, the international community is increasingly focusing on conserving diversity. The number of threatened species is an important measure of the immediate need for conservation in an area. Global analyses of the status of threatened species have been carried out for few groups of organisms. Only for mammals, birds, and amphibians has the status of virtually all known species been assessed.
