Even when gas prices in the US were hitting record highs, they were much lower than elsewhere. The prices in cities, such as Amsterdam and Oslo, were about three times greater.

According to AirInc, a company that tracks the cost of living in various places, it depends on government policy. As much as 75 percent of the cost are taxes in many European nations.

However, in a few nations, such as Venezuela and Saudi, the government provides oil for low prices as a benefit to the nation's citizens.

Although I can't speak for Finland, I think there's press for ecomodding everywhere all the time
