Filling up your car at the petrol pumps in August will cost slightly more than it did in July.

Enoc today released the fuel prices, inclusive of VAT, for next month.

The price of Super 98 and Special 95 is up by a fil per litre, while the price of diesel will decreases by 3 fils.

Here's the breakdown:

Super 98: Dh2.57 a litre (up from Dh2.56 in July)

Special 95: Dh2.46 (up from Dh2.45)

Diesel: Dh2.63 (down from Dh2.66)

Since the start of the year, the price at the petrol pumps has been steadily increasing, despite a blip in July.

Fuel prices were liberalised about two years ago, so they now move with the market.
