As you can likely see, European countries pay much more for gasoline than anyone else in the world, with prices in the Netherlands approaching $8/gal! Fortunately for the countries where gasoline prices are highest, they have excellent public transportation- trains, busses, subways, etc. How do you feel about prices in the U.S. and Canada after seeing this?
