Petrol prices in Slovakia will shrink by 30 hellers (€0.01) per litre as of August 26, while diesel price will not change, according to the Natankuj.sk website.

The website also told the SITA newswire that the average price of 95-octane natural petrol would drop below Sk40 (€1.328) per litre and should move above Sk39.80 (€1.321) per litre. The price of diesel will stay at approximately Sk43.25 (€1.436) per litre on average.

Barring any unpredictable events, and if crude oil prices remain below $115 per barrel, it is highly likely that motor fuel prices in Slovakia will decline again next week. This decrease should affect both petrol and diesel. Last time a litre of 95 octane petrol cost less than Sk40 (€1.328) per litre in the middle of May 2008. SITA
