Angola is one of Africa's largest oil producers and has significant oil reserves. Therefore, gasoline prices in Angola tend to be relatively low compared to many other countries. The average price is 300 AOA (USD 0,51) per liter. Moreover, gas stations in some rural areas, particularly in the southern part, experience a fuel shortage, resulting in long queues. Therefore, consider having reserve fuel when exploring remote areas.
