Fuel prices will drop about 7 cents a gallon starting Saturday at AAFES gas stations throughout Europe.

The largest drop in price will be for regular, unleaded fuel in Germany, which will drop 8.1 cents to $3.24 a gallon. Mid-grade and premium fuel in Germany are set to drop 7 cents each, to $3.35 a gallon and nearly $3.45 a gallon, respectively.

Diesel fuel will see a minimal drop of 7/10 of a cent, to about $2.96 a gallon, according to a news release issued by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service.

AAFES fuel prices are set using the U.S. Department of Energy’s stateside averages, plus the cost of dispensing fuel in Europe.

The average weekly cost of fuel tallied by the DOE and posted June 11 showed a decrease in the prices of unleaded grades of fuel and diesel.

The average stateside weekly prices were $3.076 for regular grade fuel, $3.185 for mid-grade, and $3.281 for premium, according to the DOE. Diesel sold for $2.792 a gallon.

The command changes its prices every Friday at midnight.

Mid-grade fuel in the Netherlands will drop 5.4 cents to nearly $3.37 cents a gallon, and premium will drop 5.7 cents to nearly $3.64.

Prices in the Netherlands were set at the “floor” selling prices. At floor prices, AAFES sells fuel at the cost it pays plus its distribution costs.
