Dutch Buy Cheaper Gasoline in Germany

As gasoline and cigarettes are becoming increasingly more expensive in the Netherlands, more and more Dutch people cross over the border to Germany for their purchases. Gasoline costs 16 Euro cents more per liter in the Netherlands now than in Germany. This leads to major economic problems for Dutch gasoline stations near the German border which have lost tens of percent of their gasoline sales. While these Dutch are already in Germany to fill up their tanks, they also buy other goods in Germany, damaging the Dutch economy further.
