Gas prices skyrocket on Saturday – here’s what you need to know

Next Saturday, half of 2023 will be over and new laws, rules and rates will be introduced. One of the most important issues that you will immediately have to deal with are the higher petrol prices.

Gasoline prices skyrocket on Saturday

We are used to rising gas prices these days. Usually the cause can be found in higher oil prices, but next Saturday petrol prices will rise for a different reason.

Half of excise discount that the cabinet introduced last year will then be reversed. The other half should follow early next year, but that is not yet certain.

That’s how much gasoline prices are rising

In addition to the reversal of the excise tax credit, an inflation correction will also be made on Saturday. This will increase the liter price for petrol by about 14 cents. A liter of diesel will be about ten cents more expensive.

As a result of this increase, long lines are expected at gas stations in the coming days. After all, everyone wants to have their tank full before the new prices come into effect.
