Now you can pay for petrol using your credit card without getting charged with an additional transaction fee.This decision was made by the Higher Committee for Consumer Protection at the Ministry of the Economy.
Earlier a fee of Dhs. 2 was charged for every transaction when a payment is made at petrol station using a credit card.According to the committee, the imposition of these fees seems to be unjustified, especially after the decision to liberalise fuel prices.
Also, the committee have asked petrol stations to adjust their ATMs to reflect the change in policy.
Due to the high price of products sold at stores at the gas stations, the committee has also recommended conducting a study on the prices of food and consumer goods sold at gas stations.
