Brief: AAFES gas prices to go up in Europe
European edition, Friday, September 7, 2007
The price of gas sold through the Army and Air Force Exchange Service will rise less than a nickel Saturday in Germany and the United Kingdom, but will jump more than a dime in the Netherlands.
In Germany, regular unleaded will increase 4.7 cents to $2.963 per gallon. Midgrade will go up 3.9 cents in both the U.K. and Germany, to $3.057 per gallon in Germany and $3.003 in the U.K. Premium prices in both will climb 3.4 cents a gallon to $3.164 in Germany and $3.107 in the U.K.
In the Netherlands, where AAFES fuel prices are based on what the exchange pays to purchase and distribute fuel, the price for a gallon of midgrade unleaded gas will jump 10.8 cents to $3.33 a gallon. Premium unleaded will go up 11.3 cents to $3.605 a gallon, and diesel will rise 6.1 cents to $3.199 a gallon.
The expiration date for AAFES’ “Series 8” fuel coupons, which can be used at AAFES and Esso gas stations, and at Aral stations on the autobahn, has been extended from Sept. 30 to Nov. 30, AAFES said Thursday. A new series of coupons will be available around the end of October, an AAFES news release said.
