    Czech TV on fuel prices in Poland

    It is not only Germans who come to Poland to refuel cheaper. Czechs are also doing this. One station in Chałupki (Opolskie Voivodeship) ran out of fuel on Thursday (Feb 3). – Since the fuel tax reduction, mainly Czechs are heading to the station. They wait several dozen minutes for gasoline for 28 CZK per litre, Czech media report.

    Border towns in the Opolskie Voivodeship have long been visited by Czech citizens. Our southern neighbours willingly buy in our stores mainly food. For some time now, they visit petrol stations regularly. 

     

    The Czech media monitors the situation at the petrol station in Chalupki.

     

    “Czech invasion on Polish petrol stations. A gas station in Chałupki ran out of gasoline on Thursday evening. Since the fuel tax reduction, mainly Czechs are heading to the station. They wait several dozen minutes for gasoline for 28 CZK per litre,” reports Události Ostrava.

     

    The situation is similar at the border with Germany. One man from Thuringia in central Germany was stopped by police as he was returning from Poland, where he had bought 1,600 litres of diesel fuel.

     

    Fuel is now more expensive than ever in Germany, at least in absolute terms. On Tuesday, premium E10 gasoline cost an average of €1.712 per litre nationwide, according to the automobile club ADAC. The price thus broke the previous record of €1.709 per litre set on September 13, 2012.
