Starting Saturday, prices for fuel sold through AAFES in Europe will go up about 5 cents a gallon, an increase that reflects pump prices in the United States.

The lone exception is the Netherlands, where prices will decrease slightly, according to a news release from the Army and Air Force Exchange Service.

AAFES uses a different pricing method in the Netherlands — as well as the Azores — based on something called “floor” prices. At floor prices, AAFES sells fuel at the cost it pays plus its distribution costs.

In the Azores, the price of super unleaded will go up about 5 cents, while in Turkey the cost of diesel fuel is scheduled to increase by more than 16 cents a gallon.

In Germany and the United Kingdom, pump prices will rise by 5 to 6 cents a gallon for all grades. In Germany, for example, the price of regular unleaded fuel will increase from $2.67 to $2.72, while in the U.K. a gallon of diesel will cost $2.80, an increase of 6 cents.

AAFES’ gas prices are based on the most recent weekly average from the U.S. Department of Energy, plus the costs associated with providing motor fuel overseas.
