Fuel retailers Neste and Statoil on Thursday made reductions to the prices of motor fuel for the second time this week, cutting 1.5 cents off the price of a liter of gasoline and two cents off the price of a liter of diesel.

Indrek Sass, product manager at Statoil Fuel & Retail Eesti AS, said the reduction was the result of a continued decline in the purchase price, which starting from last week was supported by an improvement of the exchange rate of the euro against the dollar.

After the price reduction a liter of 95 octane gasoline costs 1.254 euros at Neste and Statoil stations, a liter of 98 octane gasoline 1.294 euros and a liter of diesel 1.219 euros.

At filling stations where motor fuel cost less before the price change, prices remained the same.
