Fuel Pricing Policies

Local Currency: AED
Exchange Rate: 3.67


Last Update:

Prices are set in discussions between the government and the state owned retail companies and are changed in an ad hoc manner. According to a state oil company official there are plans to eventually liberalise the market with an intermediate step where prices should be reviewed periodically every three month by a pricing committee. By the UAE government’s definition of subsidies, diesel is no longer subsidized.

The price for Diesel varies across regions (Abu Dhabi cheaper than in other emirates).
