India has the highest petrol-price-to-income ratio in the world


Bloomberg has an interesting visualization of what oil costs in various countries, and India’s been among the top in terms of number of days wages it will take to buy a gallon of petrol.


Yes, diesel’s cheaper, and we’ve actually gone to LNG/LPG for vehicles; but those mechanisms need to get way more popular.
