Although the price of oil have halved since August, drivers in Malaga province don’t feel such a difference in their pockets when they fill up their tanks. A spokesman for the Andalucian Federation of Petrol Stations said this was because a barrel of oil was quoted in dollars and the dollar is now much stronger against the euro. Another anomaly is that petrol stations only a few kilometres apart have very different prices. A recent survey showed that the cheapest petrol is sold in Antequera and Mijas – €1.022 per litre – and the most expensive in Alhaurin el Grande and Fuengirola – €1.131. Yet at least one service station in both Antequera and Mijas are selling petrol at the highest price. Just another on of life’s mysteries!
