UAE Fuel Prices For November 2019 Reduced Slightly
The fuel prices have been declining from the last two months.
The Ministry of Energy and Industry has reduced UAE fuel prices for November 2019 by three to four fils (1.2% to 1.7%)
Here is a list of prices for November 2019 compared to October 2019:

As stated earlier, “The fuel prices were deregulated in August 2015. Talking about the rates in 2019, they were dropped at the start of this year and then steadily increased until July, when we saw a 10% drop. In August this year, prices were enhanced by 3% and then dipped by 4% in September.” If we compare the price of Special 95 with the August 2015 price, we find it lower than that.
While we see a cut in UAE fuel prices for November 2019, motorists have to take the burden of a new toll tax in Abu Dhabi. For the time being, the authorities are lenient on it.
Talking about the reasons behind this fall of prices in the international market, recently, we saw an increase in U.S. crude inventories. Brent went down by 54 cents and 45 cents in the last two days while the West Texas Intermediate crude saw a decline of 42 cents.
December will decide the faith of further price reduction or rise in it, as Opec members meet in Vienna.
