How Much Does Fuel Cost in Your County? Find out Here
IFA’s Inputs Project Team Chairman John Coughlan has reported a reduction in the price of all fuel types surveyed in the most recent quarterly survey. The results show that the average cost of agricultural diesel is now 62 cent per litre, with farmers paying 117 cent per litre for car diesel and 57 cent per litre for kerosene.
Connacht continues to be where farmers pay most for fuel, with Leitrim farmers paying almost 75 cent per litre for agricultural diesel and Mayo farmers paying up to 123 cent per litre for car diesel. This is 10 cent per litre more than farmers in midland and southern counties are being charged.
John Coughlan said, “This quarterly fuel price survey once again highlights the need for farmers to challenge fuel retailers when buying diesel and kerosene. The variation in fuel prices from county to county cannot be simply explained by transport costs.
“Every cost inside the farm gate must be challenged, including fuel bills” he added.
