Gas Atlas: Travel Tax or Subsidy Max?

gas_price_atlas_630.jpg We have to thank Wired for this graphic Atlas of Gas Prices around the world. Hmmm. Any wonder Americans are still driving gas-guzzlers? Gas prices in China are close to American prices, which doesn't seem to pose a problem for the drivers of 11.5 million cars in spite of income disparities. Sitting on a puddle of oil seems to keep prices low--look at the mid-east or Venezuela-- which makes Norway's commitment to taxing gas consumers into efficiency seem especially admirable. And thanks to jrochelle, who put the prices in the Wired report into a table of gas prices if that is more your thing.
