For the second straight week, AAFES gas prices will hit a record high as stateside gas prices continue their own climb to a new, nominal record.

The price of regular gas sold at Army and Air Force Exchange Service pumps in Germany will increase by 4.9 cents per gallon first thing Saturday, bringing the price to almost $3.27 per gallon.

In Germany and the United Kingdom, midgrade and premium fuels will go up 4.2 cents and 3.7 cents, respectively.

Diesel fuel prices will go down 1.9 cents per gallon at all AAFES gas stations in Europe, with the exception of the Netherlands, where diesel will remain unchanged.

Prices for gasoline in the Netherlands will go up just 0.8 cents per gallon for mid-grade and 0.6 cents for premium.

According to an AAFES news release, prices for all grades of fuel, including diesel, were set at the “floor” selling price in the Netherlands. At floor prices, AAFES sells fuel at the cost it pays plus its distribution costs. [See complete list of gas prices on Page 19.]

Elsewhere, AAFES’ gas prices were set using the weekly average from the Department of Energy, plus the costs associated with providing motor fuel overseas.
