Fuel prices at Slovak petrol stations continue to fall, with petrol expected to fall by 80 hellers per litre and diesel by 40 hellers/l on November 20, Tankovanie.sk announced on November 19. Thus petrol prices should approach Sk33/l (€1.10) and diesel prices should fall to Sk37.45/l (€1.24).
"This development on the international markets has been caused mainly by the reduced consumption due to the global recession, which has at the same time affected the three most developed regions in the world - the United States, the European Union and Japan, and it's gathering momentum," the website explains, warning that the current development in fuel prices could reverse itself quite rapidly.
