Petrol prices across the UAE will fall in January – the second successive month motorists will pay less when filling up.

The fuel price committee confirmed that Super 98 would drop almost 4 per cent, while Special 95 will be down a little under 5 per cent.

The breakdown per litre is as follows:

Super 98: Dh2.65 – down from Dh2.77 in December

• Special 95: Dh2.53 – down from Dh2.66 in December

• Diesel: Dh2.56 – down from Dh2.77 in December

Petrol prices in the UAE were liberalised in August 2015 to allow them to move in line with the market.

They were frozen by the Fuel Price Committee in 2020 after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. They then started to adjust again in March 2021 to reflect the market movement.
