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
