With no change in the full-service surcharge, the total for full service will be NIS 7.61 ($7.89 a gallon). In Eilat, where there is no value-added tax, the self service price will drop 1.1 percent (seven agorot per liter) to 6.30 with the full-service surcharge remaining at 15 agorot per liter ($6.69 a gallon).
