The price of oil has been plummeting over the last year, but prices at the pump jumped 40 percent in Saudi Arabia this week.
The leading oil producer isn't the only country with citizens that have seen their gasoline prices rise as oil prices fall. Several others also have cut subsidies as falling oil revenues strained their finances in recent years.
Some — like several Caribbean countries — have been hit indirectly as generous programs from neighboring oil producers have found their way to the cutting block.
World Bank data from 2012 and 2014 compared with gasoline prices gathered by GlobalPetrolPrices.com in 2015 shows the countries that have seen their retail gasoline prices rise as the price of Brent crude fell 64 percent.
