Fuel prices, on the other hand, may vary on days in the middle of the week. From Monday afternoon, therefore, they can go down by a few cents and favor a smaller outlay of money in the motorist that needs to add fuel. However, as the weekend approaches, the cost per liter of fuel rises slightly again.
These are the usual trends of the various gas stations. There is nothing definitive and therefore there may also be weeks or particular moments in which the variations do not exist. But if you need to get petrol, generally don’t wait for the weekend, but do it from Monday afternoon until Thursday.
