After four weeks of decline, fuel prices will rise again from this Monday: in the main national oil companies, “the evolution of quotations in euros points to an increase in prices of up to 2.5 cents per liter in diesel , while gasoline 95 will rise by 1.5 cents”, a source from the sector told Multinews.
The trend is also replicated at private-brand service stations – which normally work next to hypermarkets – with “a sharp rise of 0.0214 euros per liter in diesel, while gasoline 95 will register the same trend, also sharply, of 0. 0192 euros,” another source said.
So, after all, filling up a tank with 60 liters of diesel costs another 1.5 euros. In the gasoline version, it will suffer an increase of 1.2 euros.
The upward trend breaks a record of four consecutive weeks of decline, according to official data from the DGEG (Directorate-General for Energy and Geology). It is recalled that diesel last week maintained a higher value than that of gasoline 95 (€1,737/l vs. 1,688).
Also according to DGEG data, it appears that the average price of simple diesel this Thursday stood at 1.735 euros per liter and the average price of simple gasoline 95 was 1.683 euros per liter. Average prices refer to data provided by more than 2,400 stations nationwide and include discounted prices.
This update to fuel prices takes into account the value of a barrel of Brent in international markets. For several weeks, the barrel of oil has been trading at a low level. After the peak reached in the initial moments of the war in Ukraine, when oil reached a value of 140 dollars per barrel, which made fuel prices soar to record levels, the price of this “black gold” is currently lower. .
