Greece

Price per gallon of gasoline: $8.62
Rank by most expensive gas: 6
Rank by pain at the pump: 21

The Greeks' middling pain at the pump score is worsened by the amount they consume. They spend more of their income on gasoline than any country in the ranking: 4.8 percent.

Wages in Greece declined this year amid the ongoing financial crisis, compounding the pain of rising gas prices. Since 2009, Greece has raised gasoline taxes to the third-highest in Europe.

The average Greek earns $58 a day. The share of a day's wages needed to buy a gallon of gas is 15 percent.
