Fuel price hike.  We Ban Orlen Campaign.  Protests at gas stations

Drivers in Polish cities, including Warsaw, Pozna, Szczecin, and Gdansk, protested against rising fuel prices. To express their dissatisfaction, they paid pennies for small amounts of fuel, or made long purchases in the store at the station, and took a seat. Let’s block Orlen, close all stations and end this ridiculous price increase, said one of the drivers at the station in Warsaw.

The situation in Warsaw was reported by TVN24 correspondent Agata Adamek, who observed the behavior of drivers at one of the capital’s gas stations.

Drivers are looking for different ways to protest against fuel prices at gas stations. For example, some people make loud purchases in a store located next to a station, and it takes several tens of minutes, which is why their car is blocked by a dealer. Some get hungry and eat a little sausage, which also takes time. As a result, this station is blocked, and a queue is formed – the reporter’s description.

– Let’s block Orlen, stop all stations, and end this ridiculous price increase. I’m going to fill a liter, I have pennies in my pocket and I’ll try to earn (pay – editor) for as long as I can. I hope that it will take some time, and as a result the waiting list will increase and Orlen’s profits will decrease – said one of the interviewers.
