During a period from 2000 till 2010-2011 the naphtha-based aviation fuel was sold in the European Fuel Exchanges at the prices consistently exceeding the prices for the kerosene-based aviation fuel: averagely, the difference in products cost achieved 250%. On the basis of this tendency having been kept for a long period of time the aviation fuels market experts and analysts predicted further growth of naphtha-based aviation fuel price up to 270-280% of kero price.

But for the last decade significant changes occurred in these petroleum products cost ratio. In the Baltic States and Poland new different grade naphtha-based aviation fuel manufacturing factories were opened, and due to new manufacturers appearance in the European market the naphtha-based aviation fuel prices began to decrease. By early 2019 they practically got equal but in November this year the naphtha-based aviation fuel was quoted significantly cheaper than the kerosene-based aviation fuel in Exchanges. Thus, for example, based on the latest trading data of the Northwest European Fuel Exchange it is known that the cost of the kerosene-based aviation fuel made about 620 US dollars/ton and the cost of the naphtha-based aviation fuel made 603 US dollars/ton.
