At $10 a Gallon, Norway’s Motorists Feel the Fuel Pinch

Gasoline prices in oil-rich Norway hit $10 a gallon, making it Europe’s most expensive place to fill up.

While US drivers despair over gasoline topping $5 a gallon, spare a thought for motorists in oil-rich Norway, where prices sit at $10.

Gas stations in Oslo were selling the unleaded fuel for about 27 kroner a liter, or about $10.30 a gallon, on Friday. That makes it the most expensive European country to fill up and second only to Hong Kong globally. Almost half of the pump cost in the Nordic nation is made up of road, carbon and sales taxes, according to the Norwegian Automobile Federation.
