  • According to the report, Nigeria has the lowest petrol price in West Africa.

A new report by Zutobi, an international driver's education company, has shown the countries with the cheapest and most expensive gas prices globally.

The report, which examines gas prices in over 150 countries and territories, used the best-selling car across the world - the Toyota Corolla - as the car to calculate how far you can travel on $50 worth of fuel in each country.

According to data from the report, the countries with the cheapest petrol include mostly oil-rich countries, with the South American country, Venezuela, topping the chart. The country has the largest known reserves of crude oil in the world. It sells petrol at $0.03 per litre ($0.11 per gallon).

Conversely, Hong Kong has the highest price of petrol anywhere globally. The report said that the price of a gallon is $13.10 - double the global average and $1.15 more than the second most expensive place.
