The rise in diesel prices continues with a devilish rise. In fact, its cost is already more expensive than gasoline in 13 of the 28 countries of the European Union, according to data published by the European Commission itself in its oil bulletin. These data confirm the change in trend that the price of fuels is experiencing.
By countries, Belgium highlights as the country with a more expensive gasoline compared to gasoline, since the difference reaches 14.7 cents. The second is Hungary, where the extra cost of diesel is 13.3 cents. Then followed by Sweden, with a difference of 11.9 cents, the United Kingdom (9.3 cents), Romania (9.2 cents) and Cyprus (8.1 cents).
In addition, this fuel is also more expensive in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Poland and Slovenia, while in Estonia it costs the same as gasoline.
However, in the average of EU countries gasoline is still more expensive than diesel, specifically 4.5 cents, a difference that in the case of the euro zone increases to 9.2 cents.
The countries where petrol is more expensive in relation to diesel are Holland, with a difference of 20.7 cents; Greece, of 15.1 cents; Malta, of 13 cents; Portugal, of 12.8 cents; Denmark, of 11.9 cents; Germany, 11.1 cents, and Ireland, 10 cents.
In the case of Spain, gasoline is still more expensive than diesel with an additional cost of 5.3 cents, about 50% lower than that produced in August, at which time a continuous trend of reduction in the cost difference of both fuels began.
