Petrol price: Are there any agreements in the market?

The email went out on the penultimate Friday in July. Just a few days after a Blick research revealed how drivers are fleeced while refueling. Petrol pump operator Markus Gasser (53) from Dagmersellen LU showed how enormous the profit margins are with diesel. And that with the big chains around 40 cents per liter flow into their own sack.

The sender of the mail is an employee of a Zurich trading company. The company is within the control radius of Avia, which with almost 600 petrol stations is the clear number one in the Swiss market.
