The price of fuel is breaking new records


For the third week in a row, the price of petrol in Spain has reached the highest level ever and the price of diesel has now also broken records. 

The new average price of standard petrol this week has reached 1,575 euros per liter. This corresponds to an increase since the turn of the year of 6.5 per cent and as much as 25.9 per cent in one year. At present, it costs 17.8 euros more to fill a 55-liter petrol tank, compared to a year ago. The diesel price has risen even more, by 8.5 percent since the turn of the year and 29 percent on an annual basis. It is now an average of 1.49 euros.
