The cost of fuel in Ireland continues to eclipse other countries.
Petrol is costing more for consumers in Ireland than the global average since May 2nd.
It comes from new Global Petrol Prices dot-com data over the past three months.
The median average price of petrol in Ireland during that period was 1 euro and 99 cents.
The worldwide average during the same period was one cent cheaper.
Sources have said technical checks are now under way on pumps to determine if a limit on sales to non-essential workers of 15 to 20 litres could also be put in place, with suggestions that gardaí or soldiers will also have to man the petrol stations.https://t.co/9P2FC051Bp
