Egypt raises petrol prices, keeps diesel unchanged

1 Min Read

Egypt raised domestic petrol prices on Friday while keeping the diesel price unchanged, according to the country’s Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources.

   Prices of 80-octane, 92-octane, and 95-octane petrol per liter were raised from 8.75 Egyptian pounds (28 U.S. cents), 10.25 pounds, and 11.5 pounds to 10 pounds, 11.5 pounds, and 12.5 pounds, respectively.

   The diesel price remained unchanged at 8.25 pounds per liter.

   “Stabilizing the diesel price is important to preserving public interest because of its impact on transport costs and commodity prices,” the ministry said.

   This is Egypt’s second time of fuel price adjustment this year. Early in May, the country raised its diesel price by one pound to 8.25 pounds per liter while keeping gasoline prices unchanged.
