1.1 Consumer price update

The consumer price update does not reflect the average prices of the whole country but changes in consumer prices. Please see the explanatory notes of compiling this statistics after the table. The statistics will be updated approximately 4 working days after the 15th of each month.

Consumer prices since year 2000

Column A: the consumer price comprising all taxes and other fees included in the final price of the product, i.e. fuel tax, security of supply charge and VAT
Column B: the amount of the charges mentioned above
Column C: the calculatory price without taxes calculated from the consumer price on that line

The tax on gasoline is for the reformulated grade and the tax on diesel fuel for the sulphur-free grade.                        

Consumer prices vary in line with competitive situation at local markets and service stations. The prices of gasoline, diesel fuel and heating oil have been calculated according to consumer prices at six localities (Helsinki, Mikkeli, Oulu, Rovaniemi, Seinäjoki, Turku) on 15th of each month. The calculation of the ethanol automotive fuel price covers those localities of the above mentioned listing where the product is available. Prices have been weighted by the annual sales of the localities and the market shares of oil product sales.

The consumer price of gasoline and diesel fuel reflects the pump price at service stations. The price does not include customer specific reductions. The price of diesel fuel consists of prices of grades being each time for sale.

The price of heating oil is the price of summer grade delivered to a customer's tank.
