For the second month in a row, petrol prices in Qatar have come down by Dh5 a litre; while there will not be any change in the diesel price in October.

An announcement by the Ministry of Energy & Industry showed that the 91- Premium gasoline will cost QR1.25/litre (QR1.3 now) and Super QR1.35 (QR1.4) in October.

Diesel, however, will remain unchanged at QR1.4/litre in October.

Fuel prices in Qatar were allowed to fluctuate in response to changes in the global market from May 1.

Every month, a special committee comprising representatives from various government bodies, would review fuel prices (gasoline and diesel) and make recommendations on proposed prices for the local market accordingly.

The monthly revision in local fuel prices followed the governrment’s decision on fuel subsidy reforms in Qatar.
