Ministry of Energy increases prices of all grades of petrol and diesel

Fuel prices in the UAE are set to increase in June this year following a decision taken by the fuel price committee constituted by the Ministry of Energy to hike prices of all grades of petrol and diesel.

The per litre price of Super 98 will increase from AED 1.78 in May to AED 1.86 in June. Similarly, the price per litre of Special 95 has been raised from AED 1.67 to AED 1.75, whereas E Plus will witness an increase of AED 0.08 per litre in June as compared to the price in May.

Meanwhile, the hike in the fuel prices have been attributed to the increase in demand coupled with irregular supplies from Nigeria.
