According to a report by Notícias ao Minuto fuel prices are expected to register mixed behaviour at the beginning of next week.

The price of diesel is expected to remain the same, while petrol is expected to rise by 1.5 cents per litre.

These predictions come at a time when simple diesel is costing €1,613/litre, while simple 95 gasoline is costing, on average, €1,731/litre, according to data from the Directorate-General for Energy and Geology (DGEG ).

These average daily prices, it should be noted, "are calculated based on the prices communicated by gas stations, weighted with the quantities sold in the last known period, incorporating discounts offered at gas stations such as fleet cards and others".
