According to the DGEG Online Fuel Prices Portal, last week petrol costs an average of 1.58 euros per litre, having started the year at 1.66 euros per litre.

Diesel was cheaper in January than it is now, although it also registered a drop in price in December. This fuel started the year costing 1.49 euros per litre and is currently priced at around 1.61 euros per litre.

These average prices mean that petrol is currently priced lower than diesel, something that happened several times during the year, going against the historical trend.
