Price test: – It’s cheaper here

TRONDHEIM (DinSide): “Mom, we’re almost there, right?”

Yes, it’s that time of year again. The time when the car is full of bags full of swimming trunks, swimming goggles, a beach towel, and five bottles of sunscreen. Yes, and a thick jacket. You never know if a blizzard will suddenly happen during the summer holidays.

After only a few kilometers, you will realize that the food packages you smeared are still on the kitchen table, so there will be food for the gas station on this trip as well.

And there is money to be saved by choosing the right station.

Prices differences

in a survey he conducted Response analysis on behalf of the insurance company Fremtind in May, as many as 47 percent reported that changes in the economy are affecting their summer vacation plans. Half of these choose a lower vacation budget.

36 percent of them drop the trip abroad.

And if you’re among the many vacationing along the roads of our long country this summer, there’s money to be saved by choosing the right gas station. This is evidenced by our DinSide price test.
