Pakistan

Price per gallon of gasoline: $3.98
Rank by most expensive gas: 48
Rank by pain at the pump: 1

Pakistanis feel the most pain at the pump in the 60-country Bloomberg ranking. The average daily income, $3.55, is the lowest. Pakistanis must work 1.1 days to afford a gallon of gas.

Many Pakistanis opt for cheaper and cleaner compressed natural gas (CNG). Pakistan had 2.85 million CNG vehicles on the road in 2011, the second-highest number in the world after Iran, according to NGV Global, a trade group for natural gas vehicle companies.

Pakistanis use just 0.01 gallon of gas each day, on average.
