Fuel prices starting to drop
Rising interest rates and increasing oil supplies are pushing fuel prices down, says Effo CEO
Janus Thomsen, CEO of oil company Effo, expects that Faroese consumers will likely soon be enjoying lower fuel prices
 

Crude oil prices have returned to pre-war levels, but consumers in the Faroes still pay about DKK 2 more per litre than before the war.

One reason for this is that prices changes in crude oil and in refined oil are not always directly correlated, explains Janus Thomsen, CEO of oil company Effo.

“Oil prices have been declining over the past month. It is possible that the price will go up again, but if this declining price trend continues, we will soon be seeing lower prices at the pumps.”

The decreasing crude oil prices are primarily a result of rising interest rates and increasing oil supplies, he adds.
