Maltese and Gozitan consumers continue to pay high prices for fuel in spite of the price of moil going down to its lowest levels in 11 years, the Nationalist Party said in a statement.

The price of diesel in Malta is the fourth highest in the EU while that of petrol is the ninth highest, shadow minister for energy Marthese Portelli said.

Twenty-four EU countries are benefiting from lower prices for diesel, with Austria and Luxembourg having the lowest prices at below €1 per litre, whereas in Malta petrol costs €1.22.

With regard to petrol, 19 countries enjoy lower prices, with Poland being the better off as a litre of petrol costs 97c, while the Maltese are paying €1.32.

The daylight robbery continues, the PN said, as the Maltese continue to pay for corruption.
