The price for a litre of diesel continues to rise in Luxembourg: from Friday, it will increase again, by 4.8 cents.

From Friday, 8 October, a litre of diesel will cost 4.8 cents more, reaching €1.376, marking the sixth consecutive increase.

Over the course of only two months, the price of diesel has risen by 15.5 cents in Luxembourg. In mid-August, the price per litre was €1.221. On a 50-litre tank, this represents a difference of €7.75.

Since the beginning of the year, the increase in the price of diesel has been even greater: +32.9 cents, i.e. a difference of no less than €16.45 on a 50-litre tank.

Compared to the same period last year, the difference becomes even more pronounced. On 7 October 2020, it was €0.919/litre. For a 50-litre tank of petrol, motorists have lost €22.85 by continuing to refuel in the Grand Duchy.

By way of comparison, a litre of diesel is currently being sold at €1.448 in the area of Guénange, in the French Moselle region. This is only 7.2 cents more than in the Grand Duchy. A full tank of 50 litres therefore costs €72.40 in Guénange compared to €68.80 in Luxembourg, a difference of just €3.60.
