Yesterday's prices in my area:
Petrol: USD 6.15 per US Gal, EUR 1.48 per litre
Diesel: USD 7.03 per US Gal, EUR 1.69 per litre

On the day that Russia attacked Ukraine, I filled up in the morning for 5.50PLN/L. That same evening I saw a 2km(!) queue of waiting cars to the fuel station, where the price had already jumped to 9-10PLN/L.

Poland gets the majority of its oil and gas from Russia, no way to suddenly replace all of it with a different supplier overnight.
Question is: Purchase from Russia and fund its war? Or boycott Russia, limiting supply on the market, driving the price up, so whatever Russia does sell, it sells for much more?

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
