When I came here to live in April 2008 the price of petrol at the pumps was about 86 cents a litre. The only factor that had a direct influence on the price was the interfering EU, which as usual, wanted to make things more expensive for the consumer and instructed the government to add extra tax to the price.
Earlier this year, during February, due to the fall in crude, prices petrol fell to €1.11 per litre. Today crude prices remain at the same level as February. However now the petrol is approximately €1.24 per litre. Prices should come down.
