Gas prices

Going thru receipts from a recent trip to Costa Rica and came across one from our one purchase of gasoline. We had a rental car briefly (a somewhat rattley but overall decent Daihatsu Terios) and the full tank, combined with Costa Rica's smallness, kept us from having to buy much gas. I was surprised to find that the 4 Liters (almost one gallon) cost us $4.77 (2600 colones), not that much more than what we're paying in the High Desert as $4.39 is the cheapest around us.

Why is that surprising? Gasoline is a pretty global commodity. And Costa Rica's government's price meddling (e.g gas taxes, relevant subsidies) are roughly equivalent to the U.S.'s.

when we visited Europe, gas was considerably more than in the US. I guess CR is closer to Venezuela....
