HOW ARE FUEL PRICES CALCULATED?
Fuel prices are calculated by refineries based on the average of processed product prices in the Mediterranean market, including Turkey, and changes in the dollar exchange rate. As a result of this calculation, the prices applied by the distribution companies may differ slightly depending on the companies and cities due to competition and freedom.
