The maximum prices for heating oil will once again increase from tomorrow (Friday), the Federal Public Economy Service announced on its website on Thursday morning.

From tomorrow, the maximum price of diesel fuel (heating application) will reach €1.3208/litre (+ €0.0282) for fewer than 2000 litres and €1.2889/litre (+ €0.0281) for 2000 litres and over.

The maximum prices for 50S heating diesel are also going up again, to €1.3058/litre (+ €0.0256) for fewer than 2000 litres and to €1.2739/litre (+ €0.0255) for 2000 litres and over.

The prices for fuel oil (€2.1360/litre) and diesel (€2.0170/litre) remain unchanged for the time being.

In France, the price of fuel oil will fall to €1.50/litre from 1 September, as the French Government is further reducing its excise duties on fuel while TotalEnergies is granting a reduction to its service stations.

In Belgium, however, it seems unlikely that a similar price drop will happen, according to Olivier Neirynck, the technical director of BRAFCO, the Belgian Federation of Fuel Traders. "This can be done very quickly, within 24 hours, by a ministerial decree. It is a question of political will."
