Fuel prices see slight fluctuation in May

May 21, 2024

New figures from AA Ireland show a a slight fluctuation in petrol and diesel prices over the last few weeks after a sharp increase in April.

The AA Ireland’s latest monthly Fuel Price Survey shows that average petrol prices rose by two cent per litre to €1.83, while diesel dropped two cent a litre to €1.76.

Electric Vehicle fuelling costs remained the same this month, meaning EV owners can expect to pay about €925 a year to cover the national average of 17,000km per year.

Jennifer Kilduff, Head of Marketing & PR for AA Ireland, said that despite the steep increases seen over the past few months the average cost of fuel in May has not changed too much.

“If motorists can afford the time to shop around to get the best fuel prices, they should. Saving even a few cents on topping up your tank can help,” she said.

“We would also urge drivers to continue to educate themselves on how to drive smarter and more efficiently, there are significant savings to be made when a vehicle is properly maintained,” she added.
