Unfortunately, the gallopada of fuel prices observed also in our country did not miss Greece. Over the past weeks, the cost of a liter of petrol at local petrol stations has increased by several cents. If you have planned longer car journeys in Crete in the near future, then you have to take into account higher expenses. According to data published by the Ministry of Economy and Development at the moment, an average liter of petrol 95 in Greece costs € 1.63 in Greece, or around PLN 7.
It is worth noting that they are one of the highest prices among all EU countries. Currently, refueling is more expensive only in Denmark and the Netherlands. Unfortunately, in the case of Crete and other Greek islands, the situation is even worse. In these regions, the price of gasoline can exceed even € 1.70. The owners of cars with diesel engines can count on much lower fuel prices. The average price of one liter of diesel in Crete oscillates around € 1.45, or around PLN 6.23.
Of course, it is not difficult to guess that such high prices do not arouse enthusiasm among local residents. Local media stress that, unfortunately, the current hikes additionally coincided with the date of this year's Easter in Greece. As every year, it is a period of increased car trips and the time when Greeks visit their relatives and families.
