Petrol prices over the past six months
Petrol prices in the UAE
Prices were frozen by the Fuel Price Committee (FPC) due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. The controls were later removed in March 2021 to align with rising oil prices globally.
Moreover, petrol prices are also affected by an increase in crude oil prices across the world.
Crude oil prices rose since the beginning of 2022, which directly affected petrol prices, especially due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, as Russia is one of the world’s largest exporters of oil.
Set by UAE authorities, petrol prices in the nation follow the global price movement for oil.
