One in three Norwegians is very concerned about the high fuel prices, according to a new survey. 

This autumn, the price for one liter of petrol was NOK 20. However, the war in Ukraine has exacerbated the situation. 

The price of fuel is linked to the price of oil, which skyrocketed after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Motorists notice this well, the newspaper Nationen writes.

According to a survey conducted by InFact on behalf of the newspaper, one in three Norwegians, or 35.4%, is very concerned about the price increase.


At the same time, 46.2% say they are worried in different degrees, while 10.3% aren’t worried at all. The remaining respondents said they weren’t affected.

Most people are worried about the fuel increase in Eastern Norway and Southern Norway – 48.6% and 47.6%, respectively. In Oslo, 30.2% are worried. 

In Western Norway, Central Norway, and Northern Norway, 42.5%, 32.3%, and 32.6%, respectively, are very concerned about the increased fuel prices.

    The high gas prices will affect everyone. Have no doubt about it. As an example – the trucking and shipping industry ae not going to eat the high price of fuel, as they will pass it on to the customer.

    As for household products and what you are wearing unless it is made of wool or cotton or some other plant-based material, it is made from oil products. It’s just not fuel that is being affected by the high price of oil per barrel.
