International Fuel Prices

GIZ Energy Efficiency

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economy Cooperation and Development hosts the long-time effort "International Fuel Prices" with a database containing data on fuel prices, taxes, price policies, etc. of almost all countries in the world.

Policies for fuel pricing, fuel prices and taxes vary from country to country. However, generally spoken, fuel taxes are one of the most important options for financing the transport sector: 10 US cents per liter may yield the financial resources necessary to maintain the road system, an additional 3-5 US cents can be a financing option for urban transport.

Furthermore, fuel taxation is a practical option to shift the burden of indirect negative effects of transport (e.g. environmental pollution, noise, congestion costs, etc.) onto transport users.

The international fuel price database allows to compare global fuel prices and policies. By this means it can help developing and implementing rational energy pricing policies.

"International Fuel Prices" is a service of the sector project "Transport Policy Advisory Services", GIZ, commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
