Fuel Price Analysis

The global average jet fuel price last week rose by 1.2% compared to the week before to $116.01bbl.


Market Highlights of the Week


Oil Market

  • Oil prices continued to rise, fueled by the increasing threat of a wider regional war in the Middle East following Israeli strikes in Southern Lebanon. The impact of longer voyages for tankers avoiding the Red Sea and of drone attacks on Russian refineries was also reflected in higher oil prices.

Jet Fuel Market

  • Despite lower imports and falling stocks in Europe, prices were relatively unchanged, which was helped by weak off-season airline demand.
  • Jet fuel prices in the USA rose further, supported by heavy local refinery maintenance and restructuring of Phillips 66's Rodeo facility as a pure renewable diesel plant.
  • The Asian market continued to be propped up by demand from the USA, Europe, and Latin America.

Methodology for Platts Jet Fuel Price Index

Platts Jet Fuel Price Index is published by S&P Global Platts, reflecting its daily assessments of jet fuel spot prices in the physical spot market of relevant regional centers. When a market is not assessed on a particular day, for instance because of a market holiday, the previous working day's spot market price assessment is used. 

Each of the individual Platts' assessments is given a weighting by Platts in the regional baskets, based primarily on demand for jet fuel in the region; in a similar way, each of the regional indices is given a weighting in the Global Composite Index .

These values are compared with the average spot prices in 2000, similarly weighted by demand during that period, to generate a percentage figure reflecting the overall rise in markets compared to the base period. As an example, an index value of 200 reflects a doubling of price since the year 2000.

The full detail of the methodology can be found on the S&P Global Platts website.
