Low diesel 5 cents and 8 cents gasoline

According to the calculations of the newspaper Negócios, the price of simple diesel should fall by around 5 cents per liter, to 1.47 euros per liter. With regard to 95 simple gasoline, it should register a greater drop, of around 8 cents per liter, to 1,636 euros per liter.

The new prices for gasoline and diesel are based on the price announced by the General Directorate of Energy and Geology (DGEG).

It should be noted that this Friday, the barrel of Brent had the sharpest fall in recent times and, since that time, it has continued to fall, dragging the price of a barrel to close to 70 dollars. On October 26, the price was above $86 a barrel.

Compared to the beginning of this year, the Portuguese now pay 30 more per cent for each liter of diesel or gasoline.

It should be recalled that in October, the Government approved a discount of 10 cents per liter on fuel, a maximum of 50 liters, in other words, five euros in a month. The AUTOvoucher program works similarly to IVAucher, the amount being transferred directly to the taxpayer's account, which will have to be paid by bank card.

Taxpayers must adhere to the system, similar to IVAucher, and those who have already joined will not have to sign up again, and will receive the discount two working days after purchasing the fuel.
