The price of gas sold by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service will go down almost 3 cents Saturday in Germany and the United Kingdom, but will increase in the Netherlands, according to an AAFES news release.
It will be the fifth straight weekly decline for gas prices in Germany and the U.K., where mid- grade gas prices will have dropped nearly 22 cents a gallon since the end of May.
However, it will be the second week in a row prices increase in the Netherlands.
In Germany, regular and mid- grade gas prices will dip 2.7 cents per gallon, while the price of premium will drop 2.6 cents. Price drops in the U.K., where regular gas isn’t available, will mirror Germany’s cuts for mid grade and premium.
In the Netherlands, where all prices were set at cost, midgrade gas will go up 3.7 cents per gallon, and premium up 3.8 cents.
U.S. gasoline prices have dipped below $3 per gallon for the first time since the beginning of May, according to U.S. Department of Energy data. The average stateside price for a gallon of regular gas sits at a fraction more than $2.98, according to the latest DOE figures.
Average diesel prices, however, have increased 3 cents in the U.S. As a result, AAFES’ diesel prices will increase across Europe first thing Saturday. In Germany and the U.K., diesel will go up 3 cents a gallon, while it will rise 1.1 cents in the Netherlands.
