CAIRO – 1 March 2023: Fuel prices in Egypt witnessed on Wednesday an increase ranging from 75 piasters to LE 1 per liter in the local markets, as per a decision issued by the Fuel Automatic Pricing Committee, the Ministry of Petroleum said in a statement.

The decision will come into force starting Thursday at 2 am at petrol stations nationwide.

The Fuel Automatic Pricing Committee is formed from representatives of the finance and petroleum ministries and is assigned with reviewing gasoline prices in Egypt every three months.

The committee assesses the cost of transportation of fuel, the prices of the Brent crude, as well as the exchange rate of the US dollar against the Egyptian pound to issue its decision to raise or decrease gasoline prices.

Globally, crude oil prices skyrocketed due to the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian crisis. As a result, the prices of fuel and petroleum products have been affected in all countries of the world.
