AMSTERDAM — Dutch market leader Shell reduced the recommended prices for petrol and diesel on Tuesday.
The price of a litre of Euro unleaded dropped by 3 cents to 1.459 euro cents and a litre of Super dropped by the same amount to 1.513.
Shell was more sparing in its price reduction for diesel — cutting 0.4 of a cent. A litre of diesel now costs 1.095.
Oil companies base their pump prices on the international markets. In the last week, fuel prices in the Netherlands have been moving back from the absolute records caused by Hurricane Katrina.
The hurricane severely damaged oil refineries and oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, driving up prices internationally.
