Gas prices will go up more than 12 cents a gallon at Army and Air Force Exchange Service gas stations across Europe on Saturday as U.S. prices continue the climb that started more than a month ago.

The price for a gallon of regular gas has risen 34 cents on average across the U.S. since Jan. 29. Prices at AAFES stations have mirrored that increase to the penny.

Beginning Saturday, regular gas will go up 12.2 cents a gallon, midgrade will rise 12.1 cents and premium will climb 12.8 cents. Diesel will go up 7.5 cents.

These increases are based on data from the U.S. Department of Energy, according to AAFES.

In Germany, a gallon of regular unleaded gas will sell for a shade more than $2.67. Super unleaded in the Netherlands will cost $3.04 a gallon, while the same grade in the United Kingdom will go for a little more than $2.72 a gallon. Regular gasoline is not available in either locale.

According to an AAFES press release, prices for all grades of fuel, including diesel, were set at the “floor” selling price in the Netherlands, as were the prices for premium gas in the Azores. At “floor” prices, AAFES sells fuel at the cost it pays plus its distribution costs.
