UAE cuts its gasoline and diesel prices for next month
The United Arab Emirates will lower domestic prices for gasoline and diesel in January
The United Arab Emirates will lower domestic prices for gasoline and diesel in January, the ministry of energy said on Monday.
The price of a liter of octane 95 gasoline will drop 6 percent to 1.58 dirham ($0.4302) at the start of January from 1.68 dirhams in December, the ministry said on its Twitter account.
The domestic diesel price will fall to 1.61 dirhams in January from 1.83 dirhams in December, the ministry said.
In July, the UAE said it was shifting from a system of fixed, subsidized fuel prices to adjusting prices monthly in response to global trends.
It did not reveal details of its new formula nor say whether subsidies would be removed entirely, but announced that fuel prices would be “based on the average global prices with the addition of operating costs”.
