Prices for Gasoline, Diesel, Kerosene and Cooking Gas
Updated: 1 April 2013.
Fuel prices in Jordan are set by the goverment and reviewed on a monthly basis to reflect international gas prices on the local prices. In November 2012 the Cabinet made the decision to remove subsidy on oil derivatives which resulted in a price hike of several fuel products. However, thanks to the latest update, the new year is bringing a bit cheaper fuel for Jordanians.
Gasoline or petrol is called benzeene, and Super is called khas.
|Unleaded 90 octane||0.80 JD / liter|
|Unleaded 95 octane||0.970 JD / liter|
|Diesel, Kerosene||0.665 JD / liter|
|Cooking Gas||10 JD / cylinder|
There are numerous petrol stations in major cities, but think and fill up ahead if you are driving to southern Jordan, as they are more sparsely spaced there.
The newest gasoline stations may accept credit cards but the older ones definitely not so always keep cash with you if you plan to buy fuel on your way.
Update, 1 April 2013: Authorities in both Jordan and Saudi Arabia have imposed resrictions on the "private import" of gasoline so nowdays there are not as many ad hoc filling stations are seen on the streets as before.
And this is how Jordanians tackle the fuel price hike: private "gas stations" selling privately imported cheap Saudi petrol are mushrooming these days on the streets of Aqaba.
The universal price at these benzeene huts seems to be 14 JD/gallon (20 liters) at the time of writing.
