In the case of road diesel, this difference will be of less than 11 percent regarding the prices in force in the national market.

The maximum sales price per litre for road and fishing diesel will be 22 percent lower than the price stipulated in Mainland Portugal.

With regard to gas for domestic consumption, the difference between the maximum prices per kilo in the Azores and the prices in force in Mainland Portugal will be less than 31 percent.

In the case of fuel oil, the price difference between the Azores and Mainland Portugal will be less than 22 percent.

The maximum sales prices stipulated in the Azores are 3 percent lower for 95 octane petrol and 8 percent lower percent for 98 octane petrol than the maximum prices stipulated in the Autonomous Region of Madeira.
