fuel prices ?

Is anybody aware of a current and regular updated site which can display comparison fuel prices between countries?

I know it is easy enough to find this info for Europe or US but what about the other countries of the world?

In particular I need to know diesel price in Columbia (South America).

Currently in Panama but shipping my truck into Columbia next week and as I can hold 170 litres of fuel it is significant to know the best country to fill up in?

any ideas ?

Phil.

I do not know of any sites, but with regard to Colombian fuel prices, here on the Caribe coast at least, they are as follows;

ACPM (apparently a form of inferior diesel) - COP 6380 ($3.30)

Extra - COP 8890 ($4.60)

Corriente - COP 8030 ($4.15)

A litre of oil is about the same price as a gallon of corriente.

As one gets closer to the Venezuelan border, the fuel gets cheaper, and usually, better.

Not a full list, and it doesn't include Columbia, but this is the most comprehensive list I have found in one place, and is updated weekly.

I've been using wikipedia:
Gasoline and diesel usage and pricing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Most of the numbers have been updated in the last 6 months or so.
