Evolution of gas prices in Prague
Although Prague and the Czech Republic, in general, have historically enjoyed a lower-than-average gas price, in recent history the pandemic has affected the market and prices have seemingly been rising around the globe, including those found in Prague.
Gas stations in the Czech Republic are currently raising fuel prices faster as a means to recover from the pandemic crisis, helped by growing inflation and the demand of drivers that are willing to pay higher margins at gas stations.
Fortunately for those with diesel vehicles, prices are not rising as much. Since there is a special diesel tax price reduction that was approved last year.
The average price of gasoline exceeds 34 kronor per liter for the first time since December 2014. While for diesel it sits around more than 31 kronor, equaling the price in January last year.
On a year-on-year basis, gasoline and diesel prices have risen by 30 and 28 cents, respectively. Prices differ slightly from region to region, with the most expensive prices unfortunately being in Prague, where gasoline costs almost 37.60 crowns and diesel 32.79 crowns per liter. The cheapest areas pay almost one crown less.
Gasoline prices in the Czech Republic are expected to be around 1.57 USD/Liter by the end of this quarter, according to analysts’ expectations. Over time, gasoline prices are projected to be 1.28 USD/Liter throughout 2022 and 1.21 USD/Liter next year, according to most economical models.
