The IFA has conducted a survey on the price of kerosene and green diesel in each county.
The average price quoted for a litre of kerosene was €0.44/ litre, while the average for green diesel was €0.51/ litre.
There were variations of over €0.10/ litre between the counties surveyed, according to the farm organisation.
Savings to be made
IFA farm business chair, Rose Mary McDonagh, said: “Although fuel prices will differ day-to-day, there are still savings to be made from shopping around.”
The findings show that on 1,000 litres of green diesel, the saving could be as high as €180.
McDonagh highlighted that some suppliers indicated that purchases in larger volumes tend to work out cheaper, particularly if paying on the day.
