Fuel prices going up

FUEL prices are set to rise again, as Slovnaft of Bratislava, the country's largest refinery, announced its second price increase in as many weeks. The price increase - Sk0.1 per litre for regular fuel and Sk0.3 per litre for Super Plus 98 - followed last week's increases of Sk0.4-Sk0.7 per litre. Slovnaft spokesman Ľubomír Žitnan attributed the price rise to moderately higher prices of Brent crude oil combined with a weaker Slovak crown against the US dollar.
