A pattern of automotive fuel consumption is changing in Ukraine. The share of diesel fuel, likewise in Europe, is growing, and that of petrol - reducing.

According to Olena Alekseeva, TNK-BP Commerce Vice President for Sales, Trading and Logistics, in the first half-year sales of diesel fuel in the country grew by 5.5%, while sales of petrol fell by 1.5%, UKRINFORM reports.

This information was confirmed by the press service of the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry. "The demand for diesel fuel in Ukraine is gradually increasing to pre-crisis levels after increased freight and growth of the fleet of diesel vehicles. The demand for petrol, by contrast, is reducing due to high prices and, consequently, the move of car owners to liquefied gas, whose consumption is growing every year".

The trend in the Ukrainian market follows the European one - EU sales of diesel fuel for six months grew by 4.5%, while sales of petrol declined by 1.3%, TNK-BP said. At the same time in the CIS sales of petrol rose by 4.3%, while sales of diesel fuel went down by 6.8%.

Meanwhile, car dealers report an increase in demand for cars with diesel engines.
