You and I know all this. Depending on the gross national product and the tax burden, cars in our neighboring countries usually cost less, sometimes more. With this you can – keyword reimport – get some bargains. This is now also possible when filling up, not only in Poland.
When my colleague Thomas Arndt moved to North Friesland a year ago, there were always one or two Danish cars in front of him at the petrol stations. In the meantime, ER drives to Denmark to fill up. It is 23 kilometers from the front door to the gas station in Seth. A few days ago, a liter of diesel cost 13.49 crowns (1.81 euros), at home in Leck 2.27 euros. With Super it was 1.92 to 2.24 euros. It’s worth the drive there. Denmark, they have 25 percent VAT, actually everything is much more expensive than here. How does it work?
The Bundeskartellamt is closely monitoring petrol and diesel prices. Is oil really only so expensive for us? Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck has asked the competition authorities to examine it. “It must not be the case that companies make unreasonable profits from the current situation,” said the Green politician. I like the clear statement. That’s right!
