Petrol price continues to rise: 95 euros per liter goes to 2.31 euros

Gasoline prices continue to rise as a result of rising oil prices. The suggested retail price of a liter of petrol will increase by 4 euro cents on Friday. At the pump, a liter of Euro 95 costs 2.31 euros. According to Paul van Selms of consumer collective UnitedConsumers, this is the highest increase in one day.

This is the average of the suggested retail prices passed on to gas station owners by the five major oil companies, on the basis of which UnitedConsumers calculates a national average recommended retail price. The suggested retail price is usually only available at motorway service stations, elsewhere the price is 10 to 20 cents less.

Diesel and LPG prices are also rising. A liter of diesel costs more than 2 euros.

Last week, some drivers tried to anticipate further price increases. This sometimes resulted in long queues at gas stations:

Oil prices, already high on the world market due to the Russian war in Ukraine, rose sharply. Traders fear that the large supply of Russian oil to the market will be interrupted, leading to higher fuel prices.

The barrel price of Brent crude rose $20 to $112 in two weeks.
