$8.50 a gallon
$136 for a 16-gallon tank

Add monumental gas prices to Greece’s lengthy list of money woes. The country received a $146 billion bailout from the European Union in 2010, and continues to struggle with fiscal issues and striking workers. Its ancient ruins, beaches, and family-run tavernas still entice travelers, but you’re better off hopping ferries to Mykonos and Santorini than exploring the mainland by pricey rental car.
