Where can I find reusable data about the current price of a litre of gasoline (not diesel) in various areas of the world?

Average price, or at least a reasonable approximation, for instance observed prices at a particular gasoline stand.

Must be CC-BY-SA or more permissive.

Try looking at Numbeo. It is a crowd source project on user contributed real-time data. The cost-of-living section has data on gasoline prices.

Wikipedia has the information for all countries:

There is also http://www.globalpetrolprices.com/gasoline_prices/ but it has a much more restrictive BY-NC-ND license.


The World Bank provides data, but it is aggregated on the yearly level. Their source is German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ).

Pump price for gasoline (US$ per liter)

Fuel prices refer to the pump prices of the most widely sold grade of gasoline. Prices have been converted from the local currency to U.S. dollars.

There is a download button for XML, CSV, or Excel.
