Petrol price now at 2.10 euros! 10 cents up in a month

The prices of petrol, diesel and LPG have been rising steadily since the spring. This is partly due to the rapid recovery of the global economy after last year’s corona dip and high oil prices. A barrel of oil now costs about 80 euros. Strangely enough, that price was even higher between 2011 and 2014, at 100 euros, but the price of petrol then remained at a maximum of 1.87 euros, the old record from 2012.

‘Petrol price of 3 euros is not inconceivable’

Not only petrol is now shockingly expensive, diesel too. At the beginning of October, a liter still cost 1.69 euros, now that has risen to 1.76 euros. The recommended retail price for LPG is currently 1.13 euros. Of course there are plenty of gas stations in the Netherlands where the prices for petrol, diesel and LPG are below the recommended retail prices, so shopping pays off. Paul van Selms, director of UnitedConsumers, does not rule out a further increase. A price of 3 euros per liter is no longer inconceivable, he says.
