Fuel prices in Europe: the cost of petrol and diesel in Europe. All petrol and
diesel prices in Euros at September 19th 2013.
This time it is the Danes we must feel sorry for. Their petrol has gone up by
9% and their diesel by a whopping 18%. Some of this is caused by the weakening of
the Danish Kroner versus the euro, but still, there must be some belt tightening
in Denmark. As ever Norway is top of the table for price, with Italy not far behind.
Unfortunately the UK comes 3rd for diesel and joint 4th for petrol, but still way
behind Norway and Italy.
Prices in France have fallen, so it makes sense to wait until you are across
the Channel to fill up, especially for diesel on which you will save about 33 cents
- 29 pence - a litre compared to the UK. That's a saving of over £14 for 50 litres.
But make sure you've got enough in the tank to find a cheap station (supermarkets
are best), as prices vary hugely.
If you are planning to visit Luxembourg then you will find some of the
lowest fuel prices in Europe. Switzerland, Poland and Austria are also worth filling
up in, as is the Netherlands for diesel but not for petrol.

chart is updated about once every couple of months. This update

government websites, some from fuel companies' sites, and some from price comparison
sites in the respective countries.
The prices for petrol and diesel relate to the average. In many countries there
are large variations in price, so when you first arrive in a country drive for a
while before you fill up, so you can get an idea of the prices on offer. This is
particularly true in France.
Remember that fuel is usually dearest on motorways and cheapest in supermarkets.
Supermarket petrol stations are often closed on Sundays, bank holidays and during
the late evening and night. Although they often have automatic pumps they rarely
work with UK credit cards, although most accept bank notes. Make sure you keep your
tank topped up outside working hours unless on motorways, where fuel is always available.
