Prices at the pump up substantially
Fuel sold at service stations off the Slovenian motorway network will come substantially pricier over the next two-week period with the price of regular petrol hitting a 7-month high and diesel not having been as expensive since late March.
The new regulated price of petrol, kicking in on 18 July and valid until 31 July, was set at €1.456 per litre, 1.2 cents more than over the past two weeks. The last time regular was this pricey was in the period between 22 November and 5 December last year, when it sold at €1,464 per litre.
Diesel is going up by 2.3 cents to €1.504 a litre, the level last seen between 14 and 27 March.
Heating oil is also being marked up, by 2.1 cents to €1.081 a litre, the Economy Ministry announced.
Regulated fuel prices apply only to petrol stations outside the motorway network. Along the motorway, retailers are free to set their prices.
The excise duty remains level at 43.025 cents per litre for regular and 45.513 cents for diesel.
If the prices were not regulated and if consumers were not exempt from paying environmental duties, the ministry estimates regular would come at €1.493 per litre and diesel at €1.555.
