Talk about pain at the pump—filling your gas tank in these countries can top $150.

Istanbul, Turkey

1 of 11

$9.63 a gallon
$154.08 for a 16-gallon tank

Turkish taxi drivers in this fabled city that straddles the Bosporus pay a whopping $9.63 a gallon, largely because the country imports 87 percent of its gasoline. No wonder they’re sometimes accused of ripping off passengers. Luckily, Istanbul has an extensive, if jam-packed, network of trams, subways, and ferries, and even dolmuş service—a group taxi van that covers a set route.
