Prices and taxes

The IEA Energy prices data service contains annual end-use energy prices for selected products and sectors for over one hundred countries in the world; and data on prices and taxes updated on a quarterly basis for OECD countries.

The IEA’s World Energy Prices database provides users with high-quality annual data on end-use prices for most countries in the world, based on official sources and calculated using transparent and documented methodologies. The database includes annual energy prices data for more than 100 countries, for gasoline, diesel, electricity and other products.

The Energy Prices and Taxes quarterly data service contains a major international compilation of energy prices for OECD countries. The database includes annual and quarterly end user industry and consumer prices as well as annual, quarterly and monthly crude oil spot prices, oil product spot prices and import costs by crude stream. The end user prices cover the main oil products, gas, coal and electricity. Also included are full notes on sources and methods and a description of price mechanisms in each country. Time series availability varies with each data series - excel files show end user price data availability by country and by product. 

Data are updated early in the months of January, April, July and October with data up to quarter-1 or month-2.
