Reflex Brokerage House has reported that fuel prices at stations will drop further in the coming days, but that we will not return to the levels they were before the Russian invasion of Ukraine. E-Petrol analysts also expect further cuts.

Urszula Cieślak of BM Reflex noted in a comment on Friday that the price of Pb95 gasoline has fallen this week by an average of 39 cents a liter, Pb 98 by 50 cents, and diesel by 51 cents. “One of the fuels that also became more expensive this week is motor fuel. Its price is 0.15 PLN higher than last week” – noted Cieślak.
“As a result of the drop in wholesale prices, fuel prices at stations will fall even more in the coming days, but we will not return to the price levels before the invasion of Ukraine,” the analyst considers.
The electronic gasoline industry portal drew attention to the recent statements of the president of PKN Orlen, Daniel Obajtek. In recent days, the head of the Pock concern announced fuel price cuts on Twitter twice. The last entry on this issue appeared on Wednesday.
According to analysts, “such a move would likely involve similar changes in competition.” “The space for such changes arose as a result of significant reductions in the wholesale market and it appears that – unless there is a clear jump in the international market – the direction of changes for gasoline may remain in a downward trend” – forecast e-gasoline.
Differences in petrol stations
According to Urszula Cieślak, the difference in individual fuel prices should decrease depending on the operator.
An analyst at BM Reflex noted that recently there have been many questions about why prices at some stations remain well above the national average. “One of the reasons for this situation is the lower station sales of fuel compared to sales in the first days after the invasion of Ukraine. At that time, the increased demand for fuel affected the speed of circulation of fuel in the station’s tanks, and each subsequent supply of fuel was much more expensive, which drove prices to Record levels “The situation has changed today,” I explained.
“Fuel prices are starting to fall, but many users and end users have full tanks,” Chilac noted. “From here today, even though prices are more favorable than on March 10th, station owners are often unable to sell a particular fuel delivery in a day or two. Today, it takes longer to sell the same amount of fuel, and this causes fuel prices to rise in the The station does not match the wholesale discounts ”- referenced by analyst BM Reflex.

The fall in prices on oil exchanges was also boosted by reports of progress in negotiations between Ukraine and Russia, which appeared on Wednesday, “e-Petrol analysts explain.
