    Basically, it's harder to get gas into Israel than it is most other nations. A lot of oil-rich nations absolutely oppose selling their resource to Israel, making it difficult for Israel to purchase gas from a lot of suppliers. Egypt is close by and does sell to them, but the Egyptians don't like the Israelis all too much so they aren't inclined to give them a discount. Other than them, if Israel wants oil they have to import from far-off nations like Norway or even the United States, and that costs more money to transport.

    Why is gas more expensive there when Israel is surrounded by countries that have oil. It should be cheaper.

    Saudi Arabia has Oil.

    Isn't Saudi Arabia friends with Israel?

    Just saying.

      Saudi Arabia and Israel are thought to have a mutual understanding when it comes to Iran, and cooperate on defensive measures against that common enemy. Those, if existent, are kept on the down-low. Otherwise they have 0 diplomatic or economic ties with each other so no, they're not "friends".

    I do believe it is because of the 3rd world status of this otherwise wonderful Palestinian land my dear friend.

    Sounds like these lovely but simple-minded Jewish people desperately need our care and guidance, otherwise their future will not look very bright, I am afraid.

    Cars and all vehicles use gas, but these splendid people do keep many religious superstitions locked inside their closets, like certain days of the week, the "spirits" do not let them flip electrical switches or even open or close their window shutters or doors.

    So actually, gas prices does not play a huge part in their lives. After all most of them walk to wherever they want to go to, which is a healthy thing to do nowadays plus, it saves them seven dollars on their daily transportation expenses and that's smart!

    Thank you for sharing

    Greetings

    As an aside, Israel is neither in the top 10 or bottom 10 for affordability of gas.

    Ask Israel's enemies why they charge twice what they charge other countries.
