This increase is explained by the fact that Portugal is “heavily dependent on foreign markets to guarantee the supply of cereals needed for domestic consumption”, which currently “represent only 3.5% of national agricultural production, mainly corn (56%), wheat ( 19%). %) and rice (16 percent).”

“And if in the early 1990s self-sufficiency in grain was about 50%, now the value does not exceed 19.4%, which is one of the lowest rates in the world and forces the country to import about 80% of grain. , notes DECO.

The organization explains that “the Russian invasion of Ukraine, where most of the grains consumed in the European Union come from, and Portugal has thus put even more pressure on the sector, which has been struggling for months with the effects of a pandemic and drought with a strong impact on production and stockpiling.

“Limiting the supply of raw materials and increasing the cost of production, namely the energy needed for agri-food production, can thus be reflected in higher prices in international markets and, consequently, in prices at the consumer,” he emphasizes.

In addition, he points out that “a consistent increase in consumer prices, namely for such products as fuel and food, contributes to an increase in the rate of inflation.”

Do you have a diesel car and need to fill up?  wait for monday

From this Monday, fuel prices will fall again, but this time only in the price of diesel fuel: in the main national oil companies, “the evolution of quotations in euros indicates a drop in prices to 2 cents per liter of diesel fuel, while 95th gasoline will maintain the registered price,” an industry source told Multinews.

The trend is also being replicated at private brand gas stations, which usually operate near hypermarkets, with “a sharp drop of 0.0187 euros per liter for diesel, while gasoline 95 will register the same trend, albeit slightly, 0.0025 euros – another source said.

So after all, filling a tank with 60 liters of diesel fuel costs 1.2 euros cheaper. In the petrol version, there is no change in the travel time to the service station.

According to official figures from the DGEG (Directorate General of Energy and Geology), both diesel and petrol 95 have been declining for four consecutive weeks. Recall that last week diesel fuel kept a higher price than gasoline 95 (1727 euros/l against 1695 euros), and this week this difference will disappear.

Also, according to DGEG data, the average price of regular diesel this Thursday was 1.752 euros per liter, while the average price of regular gasoline 95 was 1.693 euros per liter, indicating a downward trend. Average prices are based on data provided by over 2,400 stations across the country and include discounted prices.

This fuel price update takes into account the cost of a barrel of Brent oil on international markets. A barrel of oil has been trading at a low level for several weeks now. After peaking in the early days of the war in Ukraine, when oil hit $140 a barrel, fuel prices soared to record highs, the price of this “black gold” is now lower.
