UAE fuel prices lowered for January 2023

The UAE fuel price committee has announced petrol and diesel prices for the month of January 2023. Starting January 1, Super 98 petrol will cost Dh2.78 a litre, compared to Dh3.30 in December. Special 95 petrol will cost Dh2.67 per litre, compared to Dh3.18 in December. E-Plus 91 petrol will cost Dh2.59 a litre, compared to Dh3.11 a litre last month. Diesel will be charged at Dh3.29 a litre compared to Dh3.74 in December. These prices include a value-added tax of 5 per cent.

The UAE increased retail fuel prices for the month of November but reduced slightly for the last month of the year. After peaking in July when retail fuel prices reached an all-time high in the UAE, the rates were reduced in August, September and October. On Friday, global oil prices were up in the afternoon. WTI crude was trading at $78.64 per barrel, up 0.31 per cent, while Brent was up by 0.35 per cent at $83.75 a barrel. Fuel prices in the country were liberalised in 2015, with local rates being aligned with global oil prices. The government hopes the measure will encourage more residents to use public transport while also incentivising the use of alternative fuels.
