The UAE announced on Thursday a rise in all fuel prices for the month of April following an increase at the start of this month.

Super 98 petrol will cost AED2.23 per litre from April 1, up from AED2.04 a litre in March, while Special 95 will cost AED2.11 a litre, up from AED1.92 a litre.

The price of diesel has also been revised upwards to AED2.49 a litre from AED2.41 a litre in March.

Fuel prices in the UAE were liberalised in August 2015, so they now move with the market.

Prices in the UAE peaked during the summer as Brent oil spiked at $86 a barrel in October - the highest level since November 2014.
