Sales of petroleum products fell by 3.9% in February from the previous month, according to the statistical service Cyprus, with the drop in almost all categories due to a rise in retail prices at petrol stations.
Cystat recorded a decline in the provisions of aviation kerosene and in the sales of heavy and light fuel oil, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), motor gasoline (petrol), kerosene and gasoil (diesel).
An increase was recorded in the sales of low sulphur gasoil (diesel) and in the provisions of gasoil (diesel) for marine use. The total stocks of petroleum products at the end of the month recorded a monthly increase of 0.8%.
During the two-month period of January-February, the total sales of petroleum products rose 7.4% from the same year-earlier period.
