Avgas sales off by 40 percent

Post by klaustepper » Wed 4. Nov 2009, 10:47

The mood at the Regional Meeting was upbeat, with delegates reporting that while there was very little good news in the market, things weren’t quite as bad as they’d feared. AOPA Sweden’s Lars Hjelmberg, who owns the aviation fuel company Hjelmco Oil, reported that across Europe, sales of avgas were down by about 40 percent. The economic recession has, of course, come on top of the imposition of new avgas taxes in many countries.
