IFA’s Inputs Project Team Chairman John Coughlan has reported increases in all fuel types surveyed in the most recent quarterly survey published by Association.  The results shows that the cost of agricultural diesel has risen by 4 percent to 63 cent per litre, with similar increases being recorded for car diesel, which now costs almost 117 cent per litre.

Connacht has shown the highest increase in fuel prices, with the cost of agricultural diesel rising by over 10 percent in Galway, Mayo and Roscommon.  This compares to a 2 percent increase being recorded in Leinster, 4 percent in Munster and 5 percent in Ulster.

John Coughlan said, “The disproportionate increase in fuel prices in western counties is unjustifiable. Many of the farm families in these areas have had to endure the worst impacted by the difficult weather conditions this year and are now faced with unexplainable increased fuel costs.”

IFA is encouraging all members to use the fuel price survey results to negotiate keener terms with fuel suppliers and to ensure that farm families are not being ripped off.
