Total sales of gasoline and diesel fell by 21 percent in April. This contributed to a corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions from road traffic.
In total, 482 million liters of petroleum products were sold in April this year, according to preliminary figures from Statistics Norway.
Sales of automotive gasoline fell by 26 percent, while sales of auto diesel decreased by 18 per cent.
The average price of petrol was NOK 13.69, which is the lowest April price since 2016. The diesel price of NOK 13.65 was the lowest in April since 2017.
The decline in gasoline and diesel sales also contributed to a 20 percent reduction in CO2 emissions from road traffic. So far this year, road traffic has accounted for 2.4 million tonnes of CO2 emissions, which is 11 percent less than in the same period last year.
