UAE fuel prices fall for fourth consecutive month

UAE drivers will get a holiday boost when filling their tanks as prices at the pump have dropped for the fourth consecutive month.

Petrol prices continue to fall for the month of December after the Federal Government in August changed the way it set prices for fuel.

Super will cost Dh1.78 a litre compared with Dh1.81 in November, Special Dh1.68 from Dh1.70 and diesel Dh1.83 from Dh1.87 with E Plus making its way to subsidised costs at Dh1.61 from Dh1.63.

The liberalisation of the pricing of fuel led to a reduction in fuel subsidies. Petrol prices began to fall in September as the price of oil remains weak at about US$50 a barrel.​
