Lichtenfels – if you see a gas station with supposedly cheap fuel, don't hesitate, because making a quick stop somewhere else beforehand could end up being expensive: fuel prices change several times a day, and it's not uncommon to have to dig deep into your wallet to pay for the fill-up.
Waltraud hornung, who leases the aral gas station in lichtenfels, describes the reasons for the ups and downs in prices as follows: "prices usually go down in the evening and up again in the morning. There comes then a note from the central and already we must change over."
so it's not because of the leaseholders that you can only get about 30 liters of gasoline for 50 euros lately. On the contrary, due to competition from other gas stations, prices tend to be kept at the lower limit, says manfred grob, leaseholder of the shell gas station in bamberger strabe in lichtenfels. "Of course, we generally have to follow the guidelines from hamburg. But we are also able to react to price changes at our competitors. This is how we try to offer our customers the cheapest fuel possible."
