As of July 1, the prices of petrol at Slovak filling stations will increase by 30 hellers per litre, the Natankuj.sk website reported on June 30. Meanwhile, the price of diesel should go up by 50 hellers per litre.

Tomáš Novotný, the website’s analyst, says that if the price of crude oil continues to go up at the same rate as it has of late, another price hike can be expected this summer.

"However, the instability of the development of crude oil and fuel prices on global markets makes it difficult to predict the specifics. The only thing we know for sure is that as of July 1, the prices of LPG will gradually decrease because the consumption tax on LPG is decreased to zero as of July 1, meaning that LPG could be cheaper by as much as Sk5 (€0.16) per litre."
