It’s no secret that lots of goodies in Denmark are more expensive than elsewhere, petrol included. According to research done by Bloomberg news bureau, Denmark is the fourth-most expensive nation in the world to pump petrol at 13.3 kroner per litre.

But if you compare the cost of petrol to the average income in Denmark, the prices suddenly look more reasonable and the Danes rank 48th out of 61 nations in the world.

“Still, filling up is relatively cheap for Danes. The average daily income is 937 kroner and it takes just 5.4 percent of those day’s wages to buy a gallon [3.8 litres] of gas.”

The most expensive country for petrol/average income is Pakistan, where citizens have to pay almost 115 percent of their daily income for a gallon of petrol.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the cheapest nation is Venezuela, where a gallon costs just 0.13 percent of the average citizen’s income.

In Scandinavia, however, both Norway and Sweden have cheaper petrol per average income, while it’s dearer in Finland. Great Britain, Spain, Germany are also more expensive than Denmark, while it’s cheaper in the US, Canada and Australia.
