2012-04-15: A Worrying Interlude …
Further to last year’s post , on petrol/gasoline prices in Turkey … a recent few days of driving in Italy, over this Easter, was a shock to my financial system …
The photograph above shows the prices for petrol (gasoline) on 3 April 2012 … in Italy.
Unleaded Petrol (Senza Pb) is a staggering € 1.938 !
As if that wasn’t bad enough … there were significant price differences across the regions of Central Italy … varying to as low as € 1.829 for unleaded petrol in some places. Some petrol stations did not display prices at all … and you only discovered the price when you drove in and stopped at an individual pump.
BUT … just get a load of this …
Unleaded Petrol (Senza Pb) is an unbelievable € 1.999 in Amandola !!
