									              INTERNATIONAL GASOLINE RANKINGS – TOP 100 BENZENE

              Dec. 8, 2008 – The IFQC has ranked the top 100 countries based on benzene limits in gasoline.
              The following countries were ranked based on the order of the following criteria: maximum
              benzene limits in national standards, maximum benzene limits in local/regional standards (such
              as specifications for cities/states) and by year of implementation.

              Updates to these rankings will be conducted every six months. Members can refer to complete
              fuel specifications, including benzene limits by country, in the Fuel Specifications sections of
              individual country reports. For more information on the IFQC's services or to get in touch with an
              IFQC expert in your region, or to send any comments, questions or concerns regarding this
