Fuel prices to rise

in News · 12-10-2020 08:58:00 · 1 Comments

Fuel prices are set to rise this morning, with diesel going up by one cent a litre, while unleaded petrol is set to increase by 1.5 cents a litre

The average cost of unleaded stands at 1 euro and 44 cents, while diesel is sold at 1 euro and 25 cents.

Petrol in Portugal is currently the sixth most expensive in Europe, 11 cents a litre above the EU average and 22 cents costlier than in neighbouring Spain .


Yet another burden for many Portuguese who try to get by on a average minimum wage of €700 a month, with many earning far less. Life for many families is very tough indeed.
