While the market price of gasoline will be at a half-year low on Wednesday, there are fewer and fewer places to refuel under the price cap.

Every fifth Mol gas station had a fuel shortage in the past few days, when it was not possible to fill up with 95 gasoline, but sometimes there was no diesel either – the increasingly worrying situation was reported by the rtl.hu, as it was reported on Saturday that this is also often the case at Shell gas stations, in addition to the fact that you can fill up with 95 gasoline for a maximum of HUF 20,000 and diesel for HUF 50,000 per occasion. According to Eszter Bujdos, an expert at holtankoljak.hu, Mol delivers only to large filling stations to a limited extent, because these wells receive fuel in monthly installments, and if the monthly quota runs out, then there is no delivery until the first of the following month.

The staff of RTL Híradó found wells in the capital and in the countryside where it was not possible to buy fuel with a price cap of HUF 480 per liter. According to Ottó Grád, Secretary General of the Mineral Oil Association, you have to get used to this situation while the fixed price lasts. As our paper also reported, the Prime Minister’s Office and ATV were informed that from January 1st they can only maintain the price caps with conditions.

Meanwhile, fuel prices on the market will fall again from Wednesday, in the case of gasoline this will mean a six-month low, the last time it was at this level in early May. THE Portfolio according to the article, in terms of the purchase price, gasoline will cost HUF 11 gross less, and diesel will be HUF 13 cheaper. Although the wells enforce price changes in different ways, the price of 95 gasoline will be HUF 627/liter from the middle of the week, and that of diesel will be HUF 692/liter.
