Motor fuel prices continue to fall

The prices of diesel and petrol in Slovakia are set to fall again.

The prices of diesel and petrol in Slovakia are set to fall again.

The price of petrol should go down Sk0.50 (€0.0166) per litre and the diesel price by Sk0.40 (€0.0133) per litre. The Internet portal natankuj.sk reported that a drop in motor fuel prices on the Rotterdam exchange, largely flowing from a fall in crude oil prices, lies behind the drop.

The average price of 95-octane petrol should thus fall to just over Sk37.60 (€1.248) per litre and the average diesel price should go down to about Sk40.20 (€ 1.334) per litre. It will be the third drop in motor fuel prices in Slovakia within the last two weeks.

The falls should leave petrol prices at a level similar to that of May 2007; diesel will be at a price last seen in November 2007. SITA
