Oogle's Answers to Solving the World's problems with Technologies & Knowledge
From The Online Citizen
With the petrol prices constantly being a hot topic all over the world, Picodi Analysis Team decided to take a closer look and compare the average fuel prices in the first half of 2019 from over 100 countries, cross-referencing them with the latest average wages in respective countries.
The result is a petrol index which basically shows how many litres of petrol people in various countries can buy.
According to the index, Singapore ranked 6th among 17 researched APAC countries. With the average Singaporean wage, one can get 1,598 litres of petrol.
An average Singaporean places lower than an average Malaysian (5th place with 1,707 litres), but higher than an average Hongkonger (7th place with 983 litres) or Thai (11th place with 309 litres).
Besides that, the cheapest petrol can be found in Malaysia – an average Malaysian would only have to pay 49 cents (converted from ringgits) for one litre of petrol. In contrast, filling the tank is the most expensive in Hong Kong where the average price for one litre is S$2.15.
The best ratio of petrol price to the average salary in this region can be observed in Australia and Japan. The average wages there are enough to buy 3,783 and 2,006 litres of liquid gold respectively.
