This is according to data from CCS, which tracks prices. According to analysts, the discounting will continue in the coming days.

According to Purple Trading analyst Petr Lajsko, the main reason for the continued drop in prices is the further cheapening of oil, which was not stopped even by the meeting of the OPEC cartel, which extended the current production limits. According to him, the re-introduced export of gasoline from Russia is reflected in the faster drop in gasoline prices. “As the winter hardens, the use of diesel for heating purposes also increases,” said Lajsek.

According to analysts, the price of fuel should also decrease in the following days. “In the short term, it is expected that fuel price fluctuations will continue to be minimal, with a possible price change of 20 to 40 pennies,” said the head of 4Trans, Jaroslav Ton. He reminded that the drop in prices is favorable for the financial planning of logistics companies, especially in the period before the holidays, which is traditionally one of the busiest. According to Lajsko, the favorable development of prices for motorists should continue until the end of the year.

XTB analyst Jiří Tyleček also expects continued price reductions. However, he drew attention to the end of the exemption for the import of Russian oil products from Slovak Slovnaft, which also affects the Czech Republic. “It has not yet been extended, so traders have to import fuel from other countries. Although this is a significant intervention in the fuel market, thanks to the favorable situation on the global market, there should not be significant price fluctuations or fuel shortages on the Czech market,” Tyleček added.

The cheapest gasoline is filled by drivers in the South Bohemian Region, where a liter costs 36.21 CZK on average. Diesel is the cheapest in the Hradec Králové region, a liter is sold there for an average of CZK 36.59. Conversely, the most expensive fuels are offered by pumps in Prague, where a liter of gasoline costs an average of CZK 38.92. Diesel is refueled there for 38.96 CZK per liter.
