Istanbul, Turkey

2 of 12

$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.
