Border Hungarians Fill up Cheaper Abroad

Hungarians gathering fuel for their cars and other vehicles are filling up over the border in neighboring countries to avoid soaring inflation at home, according to Euronews.

"We cross because gasoline is cheaper here again," said one motorist. "When the bridge opened 20-odd years ago, it was also the same."

With Hungarians finding they can save around EUR 20 every time they fill up in Slovakia, shopping for fuel in neighboring countries is proving popular for those who live close to the borders.

For people living in Kübekháza (190 km southeast of Budapest), a trip just next door to Romania can save more money. The town's municipality takes its minibusses over the border to fill up with fuel.
