Tour a city - Puzzle

 There is a one-way circular route from City A to City X. In between these 2 cities,
  there are a number of cities separated by any distance. Each city has a petrol pump
  and holds a different storage capacity. The total petrol available in all the cities
  put together is say 'Z' litres. The total distance between City A to City X will be
  'Z' kilo meters. Assume the bike has a mile-age of 1 litre per KM.
  Your goal is to around the circle, starting with no petrol. Find which city you will
  start first, to ensure you wont run out of petrol mid-way.
