The Credit Sesame 'Gas Spending Around the World' infographic was inspired by the upcoming Memorial Day holiday. The American event is commonly associated with an increase in driving, and while prices at the pumps may have gone down, they usually increase at this point in the year. Hikes in the cost of diesel is a hot topic in American culture, and this chart examines how the U.S. rates fare in comparison to the rest of the world.

The statistics laid out in this intricate display reveal that the U.S. does not pay the most for its fuel. Turkey actually maintains the highest gas price, charging $9.63/gallon in USD. At the same time, American citizens are actually investing the most as far as personal income goes on petrol. American consumption is also through the roof with 428.2 gallons consumed per person on an annual basis. The lowest figures are found just south of the U.S. border with Venezuela charging just $0.06 per gallon.
