Over the weekend, gasoline will sell at the pump for a maximum of 25.69 lei (+0.08 leu) and diesel fuel for 25.94 lei (+0.16 leu).
The national energy regulator ANRE, which adjusts price maximums regularly, says that after two months of global prices going down, the trend appears to be reversing.
This week, fuel prices grew slightly, by 0.3% for COR-95 gasoline and 1.1% for standard diesel, after eight consecutive weeks of decline.
This week’s increase is due to rising Platts quotes on international markets, which is a key component of ANRE’s price cap calculation formula. Global prices are rising, among other factors, due to the unstable supply faced by oil refineries and a shortage of petroleum products on the main European markets, says ANRE.
