rising price of gas in France, customers at this station in Lyon were paying 1.56€ for one liter of S/Pb 95 (unleaded).
Today they're paying 1.50€ per liter, six cents less than at the beginning of the year.
What's the reason for this drop?
According to this on-line article from last Thursday, anxiety over Europe's debt crisis has caused oil prices to drop 4 percent.
Maybe. But my guess is that this is a temporary tumble and that prices will be back up again soon.
