Just have a look here for some comparisons.
Australia: Duty on regular diesel is about 40 cents a litre, and at $2.50AU to the pound, that's about 16p. On top of that, Queensland even has a subsidy on most road fuels.
US: Varies by state, but averaging 22 cents per US gallon. That's about 5.8 cents per litre (remember US gallons are smaller.) or about 3p in our money.
UK: 53.27p per litre for regular diesel. That's over three times what the Aussies are paying, and nearly 10 times the duty as in the USA.
