Fuel prices in Portugal are not expected to keep decreasing next week. The Brent index reached around 100 dollars per barrel last Thursday, the smallest value in two months.
However, the value increased this Monday to 106 dollars, meaning that next week, prices are not expected to decrease.
Fuel prices in Portugal are not back to what they were in late February, before the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The increase in fuel prices between February 23 and July 11 ranges between 11% to 16%. The smallest increase of 11% occurred in gasoline special 98, usually the most expensive fuel type. The largest increase of 16% occurred in diesel simple, still the cheapest fuel type.
