HELLENiQ ENERGY, formerly ELPE (Hellenic Petroleum), has decided to offer an additional discount to heating oil suppliers that will result in a retail price for households of less than 1.40 euros per liter, estimated to reach between 1.37 euros and 1.39 euros per liter.

The company plans to offer a further discount of 5 percent by November 21, which, if implemented, will lower the retail price of heating oil to 1.33 euros per liter.
