After several weeks of climbing fuel prices, agricultural diesel prices have finally eased somewhat over the past eight to 10 days.

Fuel prices began to dip two weekends ago and into last week, but rose again a little by the end of the week. As we went to press this week, prices of 1.42c/l to 1.50c/l (VAT inclusive) were being quoted for Marked Gas Oil (MGO), more commonly known as green diesel.
