Second increase in four days | Watad company raises fuel prices in HTS-held areas, as Turkish currency keeps plummeting

SOHR activists in areas controlled by Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham and opposition factions in Idlib province have reported a new increase in the prices of fuel by HTS-backed fuel companies. The maximum average of prices in petrol stations have been set as follows:

 

  • Imported petrol: 6.76 TL per litre

 

  • Imported oil (high quality): 6.39 TL per litre

 

  • Imported oil (medium quality): 5.45 TL per litre

 

  • Refined oil: 4.48 TL per litre

 

  • A gas cylinder: 92.5 TL.

 

It is worth noting that this is the second increase in fuel prices in four days. As always, the increase in fuel prices has been justified to the increase in exchange rate of the US dollar against the Turkish currency.

 

On June 16, fuel companies, led by Watad raised fuel prices as follows:

 

  • Imported petrol: 6.66 TL per litre

 

  • Imported oil (high quality): 6.26 TL per litre

 

  • Imported oil (medium quality): 5.19 TL per litre

 

  • Refined oil: 4.41 TL per litre

 

  • A gas cylinder: 91 TL.

 

As always, the increase in fuel prices was justified to the increase in exchange rate of the US dollar against the Turkish currency adopted in the areas controlled by the factions in Idlib province.
