The UAE will announce its retail fuel prices for the month of August on Sunday as part of its policy announced in 2015 to deregulate prices to bring them in line with global rates.
The UAE’s oil price committee usually announces prices in the last week of every month. But during the last two months, the prices were revised upward on the last day of each month.
Fuel prices in the country have been raised for the last two consecutive months due to a surge in global oil prices. Since January 2022, the prices have risen by over 74 per cent since January 2022, mainly due to Russia-Ukraine military crisis.
Prices in the UAE crossed Dh4 per litre for the first time in the country in June 2022. In July, retail fuel prices reached an all-time in the UAE when Super 98 was priced at Dh4.63 per litre.
Globally, oil prices have been mostly staying above $100 per barrel this year, especially after the Russia-Ukraine war in February.
