Gas station owners head to court

Gasoline station owners from Crete have decided to protest against the government’s decision to impose a price ceiling on fuel sold on 11 of the country’s islands by having legal recourse. Gas station owners said they will take the matter to the Council of State, the country’s highest administrative court, while also pursing other legal avenues through the European Union. The government decided to impose a price ceiling on gasoline in a bid to stamp out profiteering in the sector. Despite drops in international oil prices, gas stations have been accused of keeping prices high.
