A number of people on Friday rushed to refuelling stations in Lahti area to buy gasoline at a discount price.
The price of the petroleum product was reduced from EUR 1.75 a litre to less than EUR 1 in the area for Friday.
But people had to wait in a long queue for a couple of hours to get the fuel at most of the gasoline stations.
Antti Vitikainen and Henna Kuikko, who refilled their cars at a refuelling station, said they had saved EUR 50 through the refuelling, although they did not expect such a long queue.
‘We did not expect such a big crowd early in the morning. We had to wait for two and a half hours,’ said Vitikainen. She, however, termed the waiting fruitful.

Aimo Laitinen, however, said she had saved both time and money by going to another direction to reach a suitable refuelling station, where she got gasoline within 45 minutes.
She said she saved EUR 25 due to the discount price but might have left the refuelling station, if it had taken as long as two and a half hours.
The rush was abnormally high at the gasoline stations near departmental stores and road intersections.
