Fuel prices, like energy prices, are a key component in determining the prices of almost all goods and services

At the beginning of February 2022, fuel prices fell by 0.50-60 PLN per liter, which is the effect of the anti-inflationary shield 2.0. However, experts expected the drop in fuel prices to be only for a few days, and this was also the case. Prices started rising in the last week of February. The outbreak of war in Ukraine brought further increases. We saw a sudden jump in oil prices, which significantly weakened the zloty against the dollar. Refueling costs have increased by up to 1.54 PLN per liter. On March 14th, we notice a drop in oil prices. There is a possibility that fuel prices at gas stations will begin to fall. Check current fuel prices.

Gasoline and diesel fuel were to be reduced to PLN 5 per liter

I remember that January 11 The government announced Anti-inflation shield 2.0which supposes, inter alia, Reducing the value-added tax rate on fuel from 23% to 8%. It was supposed to cause that Reducing the price of a liter of gasoline and diesel by 0.60-70 PLN. LPG is about 0.40 PLN per liter.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine on Thursday morning (February 24), we have been observing an increase in fuel prices. The higher cost of crude oil and lower operator margins increased the cost of refueling from gasoline and Pb95 diesel fuel. Currently, their average prices are accordingly 6.70 and 7.20 zlotys / liter. per liter liquefied petroleum gas you pay PLN 3.41.00.

The size of the increase in crude oil prices did not give rise to optimism. On March 7, the price exceeded $130 per barrel. This translated into gasoline prices, for which we paid more than 7 PLN. Some financial institutions (such as JP Morgan Chase) have estimated that the price of crude oil in 2022 could reach $180-200 per barrel. So far, this is not happening and the oil is decreasing. For several days now, oil prices have fallen on world markets and the Polish zloty has risen. On March 14, the price of crude oil returned to around $110 a barrel. It is a chance that we will see lower prices at the stations, but it will take some time to stabilize, because fuel prices are still changing dynamically.

At the moment, it cannot be said with a high degree of certainty that the cut will be deep enough to return to pre-war levels. After all, the Russian invasion and the resulting disruption in the stability of economic relations throughout Europe remains the most accommodating topic. In conditions of necessity to search for alternatives to Russian oil or the gradual exclusion of Russia from the group of exporters by means of sanctions, these phenomena will certainly translate – even despite temporary adjustments – to higher prices and availability of raw materials. Fuel – Comments by Dr. Jacob Bogoki from e-Petrol

People are concerned about the continued delivery of fuel to Polish stations. We all know that the outbreak of war in Ukraine will have enormous economic consequences, not only for Russia and Ukraine, but also for the rest of Europe. President of PKN Orlen, Daniel Obajtik, ensures that there will be no shortage of fuel on the Vistula River and declares:
