Petrol and diesel prices will rise 40 hellers per litre as of June 17. This will push the average price of diesel past Sk44 per litre.

The average price of the best selling 95-octane petrol will be almost Sk41.30 per litre, the Natankuj.sk website informed the SITA newswire.

"The growth of fuel prices on the Rotterdam exchange, influenced by increase in crude oil prices is behind the announced price growth," the website states. If the price of crude oil does not stop growing, the average price of diesel might in the summer reach Sk45 per litre and the average price of 95-octane petrol might approach record levels from the summer of 2006, when 95-octane petrol was available at Sk42.60 per litre.

This is the eighth petrol price hike to be reported this year, while diesel price will swell for the ninth time. Compared with the beginning of the year, petrol price will go up about Sk2.50 per litre. Diesel is about Sk4.60 more expensive than on January 1, 2008. SITA
