The trend is also repeated at private label petrol stations – which normally operate alongside hypermarkets – with “a sharp increase of 0.0214 euros per liter of diesel, while 95 petrol will register the same trend, too up sharply, by 0.0192 euros,” another source said.

The upward trend beats a record four consecutive weeks of decline, according to official data from the DGEG (General Directorate for Energy and Geology). It should be recalled that diesel last week held at a higher value than that of petrol 95 (€1,737/l against 1,688).
