“Orlen’s profit in the first quarter is a record 2.8 billion PLN. Did Daniil Obajtek thank the Polish drivers for their generosity?” A Civic Platform spokesperson wrote on Twitter, noting that such a huge profit is the effect of draining the pockets of drivers who have to pay higher and higher prices per liter of fuel.
In response, PKN Orlen’s press office cited graphs showing fuel prices in individual European countries. “Although current macroeconomic conditions apply to all countries, fuel prices in Poland (next to Hungary) are certainly the lowest in the entire European Union and are significantly lower than in countries of similar wealth. Sales at Polish stations account for only 10% of profits. Of the whole anxiety ”- notes Orlin.
