OIL BE DAMNED.

THE price of fuel in this country sucks.

Diesel and petrol costs here are some of the highest in the world.

In fact we lie a miserable third in the ranking for most expensive fuel costs with an average price of 135p per litre.

Norway's capital, Oslo, tops the list with the cost around 164p per litre.

But which countries have the lowest prices? Here, in reverse order, are the top ten cheapest places to buy petrol.

CHEAPEST PETROL IN THE WORLD 10. Algeria: Algiers - 20p per litre 9. Oman: Muscat - 20p per litre 8. Egypt: Cairo - 19p per litre 7. Qatar: Doha - 15p per litre 6. Kuwait: Kuwait City - 14p per litre 5. Bahrain: Manama - 13p per litre 4. Turkmenistan: Ashgabat - 12p per litre 3. Libya: Tripoli - 9p per litre 2. Saudi Arabia: Riyadh - 8p per litre 1. Venezuela: Caracas - 2/3p per litre Yes, to get hold of the cheapest petrol in the world you'll have to travel all the way to the South American country of Venezuela. Petrol is just 2-3p per litre in the socialist republic - that's around 54 times cheaper than prices here. So if you have a 70-litre fuel tank in your car you could fill it up in Venezuela for around pounds 1.50. While here it would cost you a wallet-bursting pounds 95.
