Distribution of heating oil at lower cost than last year to begin on Wednesday

The distribution of heating oil to homes in Greece will begin on Wednesday.

As a result of the 30 percent reduction in the special consumption tax, heating oil will be available at lower prices than last year.

It is expected that 1 liter of heating fuel will cost around 1.05 euros per liter, compared to 1.28 euros per liter a year ago.

Industry sources said that consumers’ interest in purchasing heating oil so far has been low.
