Fuel prices in Europe: the cost of petrol and diesel in Europe. All petrol and
diesel prices in Euros at July 18th 2014.
the last couple of months petrol and diesel prices have generally seen a slow
rise across most of Europe. But overall the respective positions of the
countries has not changed much.
Norway still has the most expensive petrol and diesel in Europe, with Italy
not far behind. Sadly the UK has the third most expensive diesel and the fourth
most expensive petrol. So unless you're heading to Scandinavia (or the
Netherlands for petrol) you'll do better to wait until you get to Europe before
But make sure you've got enough in the tank
before leaving the UK to find a cheap station (supermarkets
are best), as prices vary hugely. Our chart shows prices that are not hard
to find, although in early June we were able to find diesel in some French
supermarkets at 1.27 euros, a saving of 38 cents compared to the UK. Fill up
with 50 litres and you've saved 19 euros!
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

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.
