Petrol tourism

February 13, 2015 § Leave a comment

That’s what the Finnish car owners living near the Russian border seem to be doing.

“There aren’t many times that I’ve filled up [petrol] in Finland over the past 10 years,” Vesa Ropponen, who lives in a town near the border, tells Yle. Another motorist says being a petrol tourist saves him 1,000 euros per year. The head of a company which provides credit for people who want to buy fuel in Russia says the number of people doing it will probably rise in the spring. “Getting a visa takes some time,” says Vesa Kaukonen, CEO of Beoscan Oy. “And not everyone wants to travel to Russia in the winter.”
