Fuel prices fall in most EU states, Slovakia's at slightly slower rate

Slovakia dropped to 16th position on the list of end prices of petrol (with the cheapest countries at the top) in the EU, and second-to-last for diesel, Natankuj.sk analyst Tomáš Novotný told the TASR newswire on August 7.

Slovakia dropped to 16th position on the list of end prices of petrol (with the cheapest countries at the top) in the EU, and second-to-last for diesel, Natankuj.sk analyst Tomáš Novotný told the TASR newswire on August 7.

A drop in motor-fuel prices has continued in almost all EU countries over the past week, with Slovakia slipping by one place on both lists due to a slower rate of fall. According to Novotný, Slovakia should improve its position in the near future.

"We have information that fuel prices will fall in Slovakia next week, but we don't have any exact data yet," he said.
The average price of 95-octane petrol in Slovakia stood at Sk41.52 (€1.38) per litre on August 4, while the average price of diesel reached Sk44.48 (€1.48) per litre. The cheapest petrol in the EU is on sale in Bulgaria, while the most expensive is found in the Netherlands - Sk48.89 (€1.62) per litre. The cheapest diesel is sold in Bulgaria, while motorists pay the most for diesel in Great Britain.

In terms of state profit from the sale of 95-octane petrol, Slovakia is ranked 16th (on a list ranging from lowest to highest) at Sk22.08 (€0.73) per litre, and 25th for diesel at Sk21.60 (€0.72). Cyprus earns the least for both petrol and diesel. TASR
