Diesel prices to increase by 30 hellers per litre as of May 6

As of May 6, the price of diesel at Slovak petrol stations will increase by 30 hellers per litre, while the price of petrol won’t change, the TASR newswire wrote.

As of May 6, the price of diesel at Slovak petrol stations will increase by 30 hellers per litre, while the price of petrol won’t change, the TASR newswire wrote.

This will push the average price of diesel above Sk42.10 per litre (€1.27/litre).

"The reason for the change of prices is the fact that last week the price of diesel didn't increase as much as it could have given price developments on the Rotterdam stock exchange,” the newswire wrote, citing the Natankuj.sk website.
“This has been reflected, for instance, in the fact that diesel, without tax, in Slovakia is the second lowest in the EU."

The website also observed that the price increase is due to the high price of crude oil.

"In any case we expect that by the end of this month, when the end of the heating season begins to be reflected on the market, the price of diesel will slightly decrease," the website stated. TASR
