Some 500 petrol stations to stay closed on August 19-20

The members of the Association of Independent Petrol Stations (FBSZ), some 500-600 stations, will remain closed on August 19-20, the association said on Friday.

The association’s assembly voted for the strike unanimously on Friday, wishing to raise awareness of “the livelihoods of thousands of Hungarian families gradually slipping away since November 2021,” the statement said.

The association cited supply chain issues, the sector’s uncertainty and unpaid government subsidies as the root of the problems. Oil and gas company MOL cut supplies to pumps by half, the state support for July is yet to be paid, and the August subsidies are also uncertain, the statement said.
