in Accordance to Paul van Selms of United Consumers, a provider of tankpassen, that is, the increase of petrol and liquefied petroleum gas was caused by the policies of the oil-producing countries. That will be decided during the year to the production, to reduce, thereby reducing the over-supply and the price of oil rose.
as with The current petrol prices are still well below the level of the beginning of the year. In the first half of January and had to have the motorists for a gallon of gasoline, on average, more than 1.70 euros to pay at the pump.
Since then, lower oil prices hard. The cause of this was the outbreak of the corona virus, which causes the demand for oil is much less as it was. The price of a barrel of crude oil fell even below 40 eur. With the introduction of the production constraints is that price and therefore the customer.
