Diesel price increase by 50 hellers, petrol by 30 hellers per litre

The price of diesel will rise by 50 hellers per litre by April 29, while petrol prices will rise 30 hellers per litre, the Natankuj.sk website reported on April 28.

The price of diesel will rise by 50 hellers per litre by April 29, while petrol prices will rise 30 hellers per litre, the Natankuj.sk website reported on April 28.

Globally, "the reason is record-high crude oil prices .... but not just this," the website writes. "In spite of an approaching end of the heating season (in the United States) demand for diesel doesn't drop and the nearing holiday season increases demand for petrol."

Due to the seasonal patterns, Natankuj.sk predicts that the pressure on diesel will disappear by the end of May, and that it could even mean a price drop.

"However, petrol prices will increase at least until autumn," it writes. TASR
