543 million liters of petroleum products were sold in May. This is a decrease of 20 percent compared with the same month last year.
Preliminary figures show, from Statistics Norway (Statistics Norway).
The reason for the sharp decline is, of course, the Coronavirus measures and the reduction in all traffic, both land, water and air.
Continuously reduced air traffic led to sales of jet paraffin by 69 million liters, which is a decrease of 75 percent compared to the same month last year.
Total sales of petrol and auto diesel went down by 43 million liters, down 13 percent. Prices have also gone down, diesel is now 11 percent cheaper than the same month in 2019, while gasoline is 12.4 percent cheaper.
A total of 543 million liters of petroleum products were sold in May 2020, compared with 678 million liters in May 2019.
