Good news! For the first time in many months all prices are either down or
show little movement. The biggest price fall has been in Norway, where diesel is
down from around €1.80 per litre to €1.60. This has the effect of making Italy
the most expensive place to buy diesel, with the UK now in second most expensive
place. Luxembourg, Hungary and Latvia are the cheapest countries for diesel.
Petrol prices have beeen relatively stable, showing a slight downward trend in
most countries except Hungary where they have fallen by over 12%. Italy and
Norway top the table for petrol prices, with Hungary the place to go for the
cheapest petrol. The UK is somewhere in the middle of the table for petrol.
If France is your destination then buy your petrol before you leave the UK, but if your car is
fuelled by diesel then you will save around 26 cents (about 22 pence) a litre if
you fuel up in France.

Euros. But payment must be made in local currency for countries not using Euros.
U.K. prices are also in Euros to help you compare.

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.
