With the start of September at midnight Saturday evening, the government-regulated price of a liter of 95-octane is expected to rise to a range between 7.75 and 7.80 shekels for self service with 18 agorot more per liter for full service in most parts of the country. In Eilat, where there is no value-added tax, the ranges should be NIS 6.56-6.61 and 6.72-6.76.
The prices would be the highest for 2013. The rise is attributed to the civil war in Syria and a periodic rise in excise tax. The price will be finalized toward the end of the week.
