Rushing to buy fuel

A long exposure shot of the Texaco petrol station in Dingle. I zoomed in (or out, I don't recall) while taking the photo so the lights of the signs appear to jump out.
Visible are the prices, €2.05 for a litre of petrol or diesel.

August 2022 when fuel prices in Ireland were sky high, and they’re likely to go in that direction again. In that month, a litre of petrol or diesel was €2.059.

The price per litre has since dropped to €1.618, or at least it was at the end of April when I purchased petrol last.

Anyway, this is the Texaco petrol station in Dingle, Co Kerry, late one evening, early in the month. I’d just been for a walk around the town to take photos and this was one of the last of the night I took. I’m quite happy with how it worked out too. 🙂
