The average monthly price of fuel for operations in Afghanistan is:

Aviation f uel per litre (£) Vehicle f uel per litre (£)
April 2009 - end January 2010 1.325 1.25
May 2008 - March 2009 1.46 1.38

We purchase fuel in litres and keep records only on this basis. The costs per litre prior to May 2008 are not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
