Fuel prices in France dip to lowest level in 2018

The Connexion, Dec 27

As 2018 draws to a close, there is some belated good news for beleaguered motorists - fuel prices are the lowest they have been since the start of the year.

Prices have dropped sharply - by as much as 15 cents a litre since the beginning of October - and now average €1.42 for petrol and €1.41 for diesel.

With January's planned tax increases cancelled amid the gilets jaunes protests, experts expect further price cuts in the weeks to come.
