The selling price of gasoline products of all three types has been adjusted as of nine in the morning. Gasoline prices have been increased as follows: EGP 7.50 for gasoline 80, EGP 8.75 for 92 gasoline and 9.75 pounds for 95 gasoline, and the price of diesel was fixed at EGP 6.75 per liter.

The price of a ton of diesel fuel supplied to the rest of the industries was also increased by EGP 400, bringing the price of a ton of diesel to EGP 4,600, and the price of diesel supplied to the food and electricity industries remained stable.

The increase came in the committee’s meeting held after the end of last March, recommending amending the current prices prevailing in the local market for the April/June 2022 quarter.

Global oil prices rose during the last period, and the price of Brent crude futures, the standard for June delivery, rose by 6.2%, or $6.16, to settle at $104.64 a barrel.
