Fuel Prices Around the World?

My local BP service station is selling at AU$1.09 for a litre of diesel.
Thats about 46pence per litre.
Out of that amount the government take 38 cents in duty and then
another 10% of the selling price in GST, 10.9cents.
Transport costs I'd guess at about 2.5 cents per litre if they can
take a full load of diesel - about 55,000 litres.

So about 50cents for the oil company which considering the
investment most of them have in refining and drilling does nt
seem overly high, certainly their return on investments in terms
of share dividends is not over the top.

The prices have increased from about 85cents six weeks ago.

It would be interesting to see margins on other services - phones,
McDonalds, etc. anyone know?

This is how the UK costs break down for petrol. It compares it to some
other countries too (but not aus)

Here in Greece prices are as follows:

Unleaded petrol 95 octane 1.112 Euros per lt.
Unleaded petrol 100 octane 1.18 Euros per lt.
Diesel 0.998 Euros per lt.
Heating Diesel 0.60 - 0.65 (still to be be announced, this is what is
expected) Euros per lt.

Take care
Pantelis

Re: Fuel Prices Around the World?

In South Africa petrol & diesel cost around .69 to .75 Euro a litre.
Cheaper in Botswana and Swaziland, who buy from us as they have no
refineries, etc..... go figure.

Here in the UK it is your house, your wife, your firstborn and your
right arm - per litre.

Diesel is more expensive than unleaded in the UK by 3 to 5p/l. I'm
sure it used to be 3 to 5p/l cheaper.

"announced" that indicates that the price is fixed for the season? In
the UK the price varies rapidly and greatly influenced by the price of
crude and demand.

However I sincerly hope that the UK price is not at that price level
of approx 42p/l.
