These forecasts come at a time when simple diesel is costing, on average, €1,629/litre, while simple 95 petrol is costing €1,810/litre.

This, according to the average prices published by the Directorate-General for Energy and Geology (DGEG), which "are determined based on the prices communicated by gas stations, weighted with the quantities sold in the last known period, incorporating the discounts offered in filling stations such as fleet cards and others".

At the beginning of this week, simple diesel became 1.6 cents cheaper, while the price of simple 95 petrol remained practically unchanged.
