This Saturday fuels in Argentina rose again by around 5%, so today the liter of super naphtha around 30 pesos depending on the brand chosen ($ 1.15).

"Going for a ride" in the car these days, it becomes more and more an option to think "twice". And with the new increase of 5% in fuel, the liter of super naphtha around 30 pesos in the province of Misiones, depending on the brand chosen.
Although according to sources residing in other countries, consulted by this means, and according to the report published this week by the consultant World Petrol Costs, even with the increase Argentina has a better price compared to Brazil, Uruguay or Chile. And the price becomes even more accessible if compared to prices in Europe or the United States.
We must bear in mind that the price of fuels arises from different variables, influence the subsidies of the State, taxes, the price of a barrel of oil, if the country performs or imports oil and so on.
In our country, oil is paid in pesos, but it takes as a reference the exchange rate, which indicates that when there is a devaluation oil companies have to pay more pesos to buy oil. In naphtha, 80% is explained by the cost of crude oil that increased internationally due to the effects of US sanctions on Iran and because exporting countries have been applying a cut-off opinion for 17 months.
Prices in other countries
According to the consultancy World Petrol Costs, the average price of gasoline worldwide is 1.16 dollars per liter. There is a substantial difference in these prices between different countries. As a traditional rule, the richest countries have the highest prices, while the poorest countries and the countries that produce and export oil have significantly lower prices. One exception is the United States, an economically advanced country with low gas prices. The differences in prices between countries are due to different taxes and subsidies for gasoline. All countries have access to the same oil prices in international markets, but different taxes are imposed. As a result, fuel prices are different.

And Norway is the third most expensive country to buy fuel 2.05 dollars per liter, despite being one of the largest producers and exporters of oil in the world.
