Dozens of Small Gas Stations Sue Hungary in Strasbourg Court Over Price Cap on Fuel

Hungarian gas stations are turning to the European Court of Human Rights over the official price cap placed on regular fuel and diesel oil in Hungary, lawyer Dániel Karsai told Szabad Európa.

Karsai said that close to 50 filling stations had joined the class action lawsuit in the Strasbourg-based court, telling the news source that since gas stations lose money on every single liter of fuel sold in Hungary, this harms their property rights and their expectations of making a profit.

The lawyer also said that filling stations had never received any substantial compensation for their losses, as the state subsidies of 20 Ft. per liter they receive do not cover their losses. [Magyar Hang]
