Decreased sales and higher prices on petroleum products

In the first three months of 2011, the total sales of petroleum products ended at 2.3 billion litres. This equals a 3.2 per cent decrease compared to the first quarter of 2010.

Prices for heating oils, gasoline and diesel,  March 2009 - March 2011 in NOK per litres

Sales of light heating oils had a 22 per cent decrease compared to the same period last year. Total sales ended at 174 million litres in the first quarter of 2011.

Sales of auto diesel ended at 837 million litres in the first three months of 2011, which is a 5 per cent increase compared to the first quarter of 2010. For the same period, sales of motor gasoline ended at 344 million litres; a 9 per cent decrease. The total sales of auto diesel and motor gasoline made up only a 0.5 increase from the first quarter in 2010 to the first quarter in 2011.

Unrest in oil producing countries in North Africa and the Middle East may be a contributing factor to the increased monthly price change on engine fuel and heating oils from February to March 2011.
