Bulgaria with Europe's Highest Pain-at-the-Pump Score

The average Bulgarian resident can buy just 213 liters of fuel with a monthly salary, reported Prime-Tass, citing ranking compiled by experts from the "RIA Rating".
The citizens of Luxemburg fork out the smallest share of a monthly wage to buy a liter of gas, the ranking pointed out.
The average monthly income of a citizen of Luxemburg is enough to buy 2300 liters of fuel.
Bulgaria ranks second by the rise in fuel prices in the first quarter of the year, preceded only by Cyprus, where the hike hit 5.2%.
In Bulgaria the average retail prices increased by 4.4% and France - by 4.1%,
