Fuel prices may rise or stagnate in the near future
The forint strengthened to 349/USD this week, up 3 percent from 359 forints at the beginning of the week, napi.hu reports. The exchange rate has now corrected somewhat, to stand at 356 forints at the weekend. Overall, this represents a 1 percent strengthening in one week.
The Brent exchange rate was less favourable for fuel users: the price of Brent oil has risen by 4 percent per barrel in a week, to 86 dollars. This makes it more likely that fuel prices will rise in the coming week. Although the steadily strengthening forint means that stagnation is also possible.
