Does North America pay more for energy than any other country?

    There is more than one country in North America, but if you mean the United States, it is challenging to give a single cost for ‘energy’. Electricity, gasoline, home heating oil and more are all part of “energy” and all have rather different costs in different places. Electricity is very cheap in Iceland because they have abundant cheap local hydropower sources and geothermal supplies, but gasoline there is very expensive.

    There’s the further question of total cost vs. per capita – if you mean the total expenditure, then the USA almost certainly spends the most because we consume the most of almost everything. But per capita (per person), it could easily be some other nation, say one in Europe, that spends a lot on imported natural gas from Russia for home heating, as well as imported oil for car fuel.
