Greek Govt Imposes Price Cap on Fuel Due to Customs Strike

Greek government imposed a price cap on vehicles fuel of all kind in order to prevent price fixing and manipulation due to the customs officers strike. the price cap will be valid as of  midnight Friday/Saturday, October 14/15th 2011. According to Greek media, the price cap will be different across the several prefectures of the country and will be according to the average price in each area by Thursday evening.

In Attica, the price for unleaded will be at €1.643 per liter, in Thessaloniki  €1.627, in Achaia €1.669, in Crete €1.735-1.756.

The measure is taken after the strike of the Hellenic Petroleum workers on Monday that lasted for a few hours, led several petrol stations to raise the prices. Thousands of  motorists rushed to gasoline stations to fill up their tanks as the HP strike was just a couple of days before the 48-hour strike of the public transport.

There are some links where people can check the prices in several areas but the lists are currently … empty. They maybe filled later or tomorrow.

Service Free of Charge: You can send an SMS to 54151 free of charge and find the cheapest fuel in your area. I do hope this service  works .

  1. I hope this does not mean that our Cretan petrols stations will raise prices, because just few days back I was relieved when I saw price below 1.7 like 1.669 and 1.689…

      I can’t tell you , the cap mean the maximum price they can charge.

    • Just move south of Loutro and ask some dynamite-fishermen. Their fuel is really cheap, much cheaper than the stuff you can get from the army because it comes directly from Lybia.
