Slovakia ranks twelfth in EU petrol prices

Despite rising motor fuel prices in Europe, Slovakia maintained twelfth position in the ranking of petrol prices in the European Union (EU) last week. When comparing prices without tax, Slovakia had the cheapest petrol and diesel of the whole Visegrad Group and Austria.

The cheapest 95-octane petrol in the EU was traditionally available to customers in Estonia, where the price was Sk30.06 per liter. As of November 5 of this year, 95-octane petrol in Slovakia cost Sk38.16 per liter on average. On the other hand, 95-octane petrol was the most expensive in the Netherlands, where it cost Sk50.80 per liter. This information was published on www.natankuj.sk.

In the ranking of diesel prices, Slovakia moved up to nineteenth position from last week. As of November 5, the average at-the-pump price of diesel was Sk39.02 in Slovakia. SITA
