Gas prices will again dive substantially this weekend at Army and Air Force Exchange Service stations in Germany, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

Thanks to a continued slump in prices at stateside pumps, prices in Germany and the U.K. will drop Saturday anywhere from 7.1 cents per gallon for midgrade unleaded gas to 5.1 cents per gallon for diesel.

Regular unleaded gas, sold only in Germany, will plunge another 6.7 cents a gallon at the stroke of midnight on Friday to dip below the $3 mark for the first time since mid-April. Premium will decline 6.7 cents a gallon in to level out at $3.16 in Germany and $3.10 in the U.K.

Also in the U.K., midgrade gas will drop below the $3 milestone — about $2.98 a gallon — for the first time since early April.

In the Netherlands, where the cost of fuel is based on what AAFES pays to purchase and distribute fuel, midgrade gas will go down 7.8 cents, premium will drop 8.1 cents, diesel will plummet 12.4 cents.

Regular unleaded decreased an average of 27.8 cents per gallon in the U.S. in the last four weeks, and now rests around $2.77. That slide has been matched at pumps in Germany and the U.K.

AAFES fuel prices in the Netherlands increased last week, but still, the price of midgrade gas — the lowest grade sold there — has dropped 28.1 cents overall in the past four weeks.
