Prices of diesel fuel in the Netherlands 2000-2018

Average prices of diesel fuel in the Netherlands from 2000 to 2018 (in euros)

by Ian Tiseo, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Prices of diesel fuel in the Netherlands 2000-2018 Despite fluctuating, the price of diesel fuel per liter in the Netherlands has seen an overall increase since the year 2000. In that year, the average price amounted to 85 euro cents per liter. By 2018 this had increased to 1.3 euros. In comparison, the price per liter of unleaded 95 octane fuel was 1.7 euros in the same year.

The average price for a liter of diesel before taxation in the Netherlands was 0.47 GBP per liter in 2018. More than half of the total price was from taxes at 0.63 GBP. This was one of the highest taxations on the fuel in the European Union, with only eight other countries paying more.

Diesel sales fall

  The number of newly registered passenger diesel cars has seen a significant decline since 2015. In that year there were approximately 130 thousand registered in the Netherlands, but the following year this fell to just 72,356. In 2017 the number fell further and amounted to 72,267, signaling a shift away from this type of vehicle. By 2020, diesel cars predating 2005 will be banned from entering the A10 ring road area around the Dutch capital in a bid to curb air pollution, with a complete diesel ban scheduled for 2030.
