Diesel in Belgium Jul 26, 2004

Diesel in Belgium is about half price of what it is over here in England. My husband is a lorry driver, and each weekend most of the drivers go over to Belgium (as France is more expensive than Belgium) to fill up all the lorries for the week. It is very interesting for his boss.
Spain, I haven't been in years, but I know 3 years ago, it was much cheaper than the UK as well!
Have fun on your trip.

Hi Moya,
I should have mentioned that I live in Portugal and a *real price* like diesel costs 90 cents in Belgium or something would help

Diesel Prices in Belgium Jul 26, 2004

Hi Natália,

The price of diesel in Belgium is about EUR 0,80/l. You'll find gas stations where you pay EUR 0,78 and others where you pay up to EUR 0,85.

I hope you will spend a marvellous holiday in Germany!

Kind regards,

Gert

Are we talking about money?

Anyway, anyone knows of a good bridge to get to Europe from here?

of course I can only compare with France, but the reason is
simple: in France 80% of "prix à la pompe" i.e. what you pay
at the pumps, is taxes. In the US, 1/3. For that reason, a
rise in the price per barrel will be felt in the US, not in
France.
