Owners of gas-operated motor vehicles can finally purchase auto gas in Cyprus although for the time, sales are limited to a single station in Nicosia.
In an announcement made by Petrolina (Holdings) Public Ltd, the company noted that it was the first company to have obtained all the necessary licences to operate the first such station in Cyprus.
“This development falls within the company’s broader strategy of offering new innovative products on the market to better serve consumer needs,” said Petrolina Executive Director Dinos Lefkaritis.
