Slovak filling stations are expecting a record drop in the prices of fuels as of December 9, the Tankovanie.sk website announced on December 8.

The price of 95-octane petrol should fall by as much as Sk1.5 per litre to average Sk30.10 (€1.0), while diesel should be marked down by Sk1 to Sk34.90 (€1.16).

"It's a reaction to the global economic recession that is pushing the prices of oil and oil products to lower and lower levels," the website reports, adding that petrol has fallen in price by Sk11.50 (€0.38) per litre, while diesel is down Sk10 (€0.33) since the summer. TASR
