Kerosene Prices

Wed Oct 04, 2000 4:16 am

Hi,
today somebody asked me what's the price of the Kerosene in Belgium.
So I found some website but the prices were not really updated..
So I'm asking here if anybody can tell me what's the price or where can I find it on the internet.

Thanks by advance!
Julien from Brussels.

There are 5 fuel dealers in Brussels, you may want to look at one of their web sites.
They are
Abelag Aviation
Belgian Airfuels SVC
Belgium Fuelling SVC
ESSO Fuels
Shell Fuels




Hope this helps

A rule of thumb I use that seems to work pretty well is to find out what they charge for diesel fuel a the local gas pump and then divide that by 2/3's.

That seems to give a pretty good idea of what jet is running for from an wholesaler.

I don't know how that would work out of the U.S. with the different tax laws. Actually I am not sure how that would work in a different city even. But it seems to hold true here in Anchorage.

Remember though those are posted prices - contract prices are very much cheaper (BRU is US$0.95, for example). Suggest you get a UVAir or Air Routing card.
