    With average petrol prices touching historic highs, a plenty of Indians are worried over the cost of filling up.

    Experts say the price of petrol is skyrocketting because of the unrest in the Middle East and rising demand, especially from developing countries.

    Even though prices in India are high, they are still lower than most of the European countries, where high taxes and lack of subsidies mean going to a petrol station to fill up your car can really make a dent in your wallet.

    Around the world, petrol prices in countries such as Turkey, Eritrea and Norway are the highest, while in Saudi Arabia and Venezuela they are lowest.

    Let us have a look at what people are paying at petrol pumps around the world.

    Turkey: Rs 114.50 per litre
    Eritrea: Rs 114.03 per litre
    Norway: Rs. 110 per litre
    Greece: Rs 101.07 per litre
    Denmark: Rs 100 per litre
    Sweden: Rs 97.27 per litre
    The United Kingdom: Rs 97.15 per litre
    The Netherlands: Rs 95.25 per litre

    Qatar: Rs 10.46 per litre
    Kuwait: Rs 9.63 per litre
    Bahrain: Rs 9.51 per litre
    Turkmenistan: Rs 8.55 per litre
