Dubai: The price of diesel in Dubai has gone up by 50 fils, or 3.26 per cent, per gallon as fuel retailers in the emirate continue their policy of adjusting prices upward to match rising international crude prices.
The price hikes by Enoc and Emarat in the last few months have made diesel more than 80 per cent costlier in Dubai than at Adnoc-operated filling stations in Abu Dhabi. Diesel is being sold at Dh15.80 per gallon in Dubai compared with Dh8.60 in Abu Dhabi.
As a result, queues at Adnoc outlets are getting longer. Khalid Hadi, Enoc Group’s brand and marketing manager, told Gulf News recently that the company’s pricing policy “reflects international prices.”
