UAE announces petrol and diesel prices to fall in September

After six months of price increases, motorists will pay less for both petrol and diesel at the fuel pumps in September

Fuel prices in the UAE will drop in September, the UAE fuel price committee announced on Monday.

After six months of price rises, motorists will pay less for both petrol and diesel at the fuel pumps.

The new prices show a decline of between 1.17 per cent and 1.22 per cent for petrol and a 2.94 per cent for diesel.

The breakdown per litre is as follows:

Super 98: Dh2.55 – down from Dh2.58 in August

• Special 95: Dh2.44 – down from Dh2.47 in August

• Diesel: Dh2.38 – down from Dh2.45 in August

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

However, they were held by the Fuel Price Committee last year after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. They then started to adjust again in March.
