Slovakia now lower on EU petrol price chart

Slovakia has dropped one place in the ranking of the most affordable petrol prices in the EU to 11th place, as of July 23.

The drop was not caused by a change of petrol prices in Slovakia, but a considerable reduction of petrol prices in Luxembourg, where prices went down approximately Sk0.90 per litre.

As of July 23, 95-octane petrol in Slovakia cost Sk38.59 per litre. The cheapest 95-octane petrol in the EU was again available in Estonia, and the second-cheapest in Lithuania.

As of July 31, the price of petrol in Slovakia was set to fall by Sk0.30 per litre, while diesel prices will remain unchanged at around Sk37.20 (€1.10) per litre, the tankovanie.sk web site reported on July 30. This means that the average price of 95-octane petrol should go down to Sk38.40 per litre, which is Sk4 per litre lower than a year ago.
