Diesel prices drop, unleaded costs stay the same at bases in Italy
The price of diesel fuel coupons in Italy will be dipping for April, while prices for unleaded gasoline will remain the same as the March price, a Navy official said.
The coupon booklet price for 100 liters of diesel decreases from $91 to $86, said Bart Di Muccio, administrator of the Tax-Free Office in Naples, which runs the gas coupon program in Italy.
Unleaded coupon prices stay at $76 for 100 liters.
The prices translate to $3.25 a gallon for diesel and $2.87 for unleaded. The price change for diesel takes effect Wednesday.
Coupon prices in Italy are set once a month by the Tax-Free Office and determined by the barrel cost of fuel, the dollar-to-euro exchange rate, and any financial gains or losses from the previous month. Coupons are sold at Italy-based Navy Exchange and Army and Air Force Exchange Service outlets. Americans and NATO personnel don’t have access to on-base stations, and redeem the coupons for fuel at participating Esso or Agip stations.
