European Fuel Prices, July 2008

This month’s map from GfK GeoMarketing depicts petrol and diesel prices (national averages) across Europe (Illustration: GfK GeoMarketing; data source: AvD, ADAC).

Current fuel prices vary significantly across Europe. The average price for normal petrol in western European countries ranges from €1.20 in Switzerland to €1.68 in the Netherlands. At €1.55 per liter*, the price of petrol in Germany lies toward the high end of the scale. In Turkey, fuel is more expensive than anywhere else in Europe, with normal petrol costing on average €1.82 per liter. Norway has the second most expensive petrol at €1.61 per liter.

The United Kingdom is one of the few countries in which diesel costs significantly more than normal petrol – around €0.17 more per liter. Diesel is also more expensive than normal petrol in Ireland, Spain, Switzerland and the Baltic states.

Fuel is cheapest in Russia, where a liter of normal petrol runs around €0.68 and diesel costs €0.68 per liter. Even so, Russians are now paying eight cents more per liter petrol than in April 2007 – an increase of 13 percent. 

* (One liter is approximately 0.26 gallons in the US.)
