"The price of fuel on the international market are a reaction to the price of crude oil dropping. It was only a matter of time before the Slovak market joined in," Novotny said.

The average price of 95-octane petrol is to drop from Sk41 (€1.36) per litre to Sk41.41 (€1.37), while the average price of diesel is expected to stay below the threshold of Sk44.50 (€1.48) per litre. Fuel prices last changed in Slovakia four weeks ago. Since February 1, petrol prices have increased eight times, and diesel prices nine times. From the beginning of 2008, petrol prices have gone up by approximately Sk2.70 (€0.09) per litre and diesel rose by approximately Sk4 (€0.13) per litre. TASR
