Prague – Fuel prices at petrol stations in the Czech Republic have fallen again since last week, but this time at a slower pace. Natural 95 petrol reduced by 30 pennies to an average of 42.40 crowns per liter. Diesel sells for an average of 44.67 crowns per liter, a week ago it was 43 pennies more expensive. This is according to data from CCS, which monitors prices. Despite the cheaper, however, fuels are still significantly more expensive than a year ago. At that time, motorists paid 10.93 crowns less per liter of petrol, diesel was cheaper by 15.15 crowns.

Gasoline and diesel prices rose to record highs around March 10 as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, after which oil rose sharply and the koruna weakened against the dollar. A liter of Natural 95 cost on average up to more than 47 crowns, the average price of diesel exceeded 49.50 CZK / l. In the following period, prices mostly fell.

The cheapest fuels are now refueled by drivers in the South Bohemian Region, where a liter of petrol costs an average of CZK 41.65 and a liter of diesel costs CZK 43.90. On the contrary, the most expensive are gas stations in Prague. A liter of petrol costs them an average of CZK 43.12. Diesel is refueled in the capital for an average of CZK 45.39 / l.

Last week, in response to a sharp rise in fuel prices, the government approved a draft amendment to the law on a temporary reduction in excise duty on diesel and petrol by 1.5 crowns per liter. The measure should apply from the beginning of June to the end of September, the Ministry of Finance is considering introducing a reduction for diesel permanently. The legislative change has yet to be approved by Parliament. According to the Ministry of Finance, prices at gas stations could fall by as much as 1.8 crowns per liter. A tax of 12.84 crowns is now paid on a liter of petrol and 9.95 crowns for diesel.
