Diesel is expected to drop by around 1.5 cents per litre on Monday and petrol should be around 1 cent per litre cheaper according to a report by CNN Portugal.

These are the estimates at the end of this week, according to market sources and according to the evolution of international prices for oil products.

Although the drops are small, they add to the strong drop in diesel last Monday. Petrol, on the other hand, has seen prices remain stable since September 5.

This week, a litre of simple diesel was sold on average in mainland Portugal for 1,752 euros, so next week it should drop to around 1,737 euros. At the beginning of this month of September, the price was at 1,887 euros per litre.

Petrol was priced at 1.693 euros per litre at the end of this week, so it should fall to a value of around 1.6 euros next week, when at the beginning of September it was 1.78 euros per litre.
