40% increase in energy prices in Turkey since July
Last Thursday, the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) increased in Turkey, amounting to nearly a 40% increase since July. The price of LPG is important for consumers, since it is the most commonly used automotive fuel in Turkey. Although the increase has been greatest for LPG, prices of other petroleum products have also increased. Prices vary from city to city, but in Izmir, for example, diesel fuel sold for 4.32 TL per liter in July; today it is 4.68 TL. In July gasoline was 4.32 TL per liter; today it is 5.41 TL per liter.
