Thailand

Price per gallon of gasoline: $4.42
Rank by most expensive gas: 47
Rank by pain at the pump: 10

Thailand has cheap gas relative to most nations ranked here, but it's a steep price for many Thais. The average daily income is $17. The share of a day's wages needed to buy a gallon of gas is 25 percent.
