First Time buying fuel cheaper than bottled water!

IMG-20130513-00444

Lately, I was using the car of a friend. What I mostly do in Belgium for using somebody’s car,  is filling it back up with fuel. That’s mostly a fair trade. But not in Dubai it seems…

Didn’t came as a surprise, but refilling your car at 1.72 AED (=€0.35 = $0.47) per liter is pretty rare I would say. It is literally cheaper than bottled water in many cases.

Fun fact: The government is considering lowering the price because they are not competitive with the surrounding countries. In Oman for example the price is easily 30% cheaper. Rumors say subsidizing the fuel price may go up to 60% (!!)
