Diesel up, unleaded falls

The price of diesel is set to rise by 1.5 cents a litre this morning, making it the biggest increase in more than six months.

This latest increase is due to increased global oil prices, but does not take into account the negative effects the attacks on a Saudi oil facility are expected to have in the coming weeks. The latest increase is however lessened by the euro strengthening against the dollar.

Unleaded petrol is however expected to drop slightly.
