The reduction of motor fuel prices in Slovakia will continue this week. Petrol prices are to fall by approximately 30 hellers (€0.01) per liter and diesel prices by 90 hellers (€0.0299) per litre.

According to Natankuj.sk, quoted by the SITA newswire, the average price of 95-octane petrol will drop below Sk30 (€0.9958) per litre for the first time since July 2003. Its value will oscillate above the level of Sk29.80 (€0.9892) per litre. The average price of diesel will be just above the level of Sk34 (€1.129) per litre.

The website further annouced that petrol stations should change the price of motor fuels on December 16, while reduction by the aforementioned amounts should be completed by the end of the week.

The development of motor fuel prices on world markets over the past few days and weeks is behind the fall in local prices. Motor fuel prices in Slovakia have been dropping constantly since October. Since mid-July motor fuel prices in Slovakia have not increased. Inclusive of the current price fall, petrol prices have gone down Sk11.80 (€0.3917) per liter and diesel prices by Sk10.80 (€0.3585) per litre since then. SITA
