New Year’s Eve at gas stations. Prices are on a “similar level”

From January 1, 2023, fuel is again subject to the standard VAT rate. No increases in sight. Given the recent events in the wholesale market – no wonder.

We’re waiting for 95 gas. The station employee answered me when I ask about the price of fuel at the checkout. On Sunday morning, the station tower showed no value. Nothing abnormal. Even on the last day of the year, there were lines at this point, and drivers were refueling in canisters. A similar situation occurs at the station at the local supermarket.

The price drop was commented on by economist Ravi Mundiri. Miracles on Orlen. Today, wholesale prices for 95, 98 and Orlen diesel oil are 12 percent cheaper overnight. The analyst pointed out that the zloty and oil will remain the same, and tomorrow the value-added tax on fuel will rise from 8 percent. To 23 percent and if they reduce VAT today and add VAT tomorrow, it will be the same. Drivers paid more than PLN 700 per ton? (original spelling – editor’s note) asked the expert.

However, e-gasoline analysts are a little less optimistic. Their projections indicate increments that should be felt strongly, especially in the event of diesel.

It will also become more expensive 95- Gasoline – from 6.53 PLN per liter to PLN 6.68 – PLN 6.83.00 zlotys
