Gas prices to rise 5 cents
Prices for fuel sold by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service will go up by about 5 cents on average Saturday in Germany and the United Kingdom, and will rise about 13 cents in the Netherlands.
The increase drives all grades of AAFES fuel above $3 per gallon across Europe.
In Germany, the price of regular unleaded rises to $3.039 a gallon. Midgrade goes up 4.6 cents in both Germany and the U.K. to $3.15 and $3.088, respectively.
In the Netherlands, where prices are based on the local cost of purchasing and distributing fuel, midgrade gasoline rises 12.7 cents to $3.571 and premium rises 13.2 cents to $3.861. Diesel rises 12.8 cents to $3.639.
Diesel prices in Germany and the U.K. rise a more modest 6.3 cents per gallon to $3.324 and $3.262 respectively.
Including last Saturday’s markup, fuel prices in Germany and the U.K. will have gone up nearly 11 cents in two weeks. Fuel prices in the Netherlands have vaulted 20 cents on average in that time.
